Windows Loader V1.9.7 ((HOT))
EXPERIMENTAL - Software will try to detect if ISO image is bootable and if so write appropriate bootloader. As of release only booting through UEFI seems to be working. Tested with Windows 10 ISO, Linux (Porteus-5.0rc, Ubuntu-19.04 and Mint 19.2 ISO images). NOT ALL ISO IMAGES WILL WORK. This functionality is experimental and may be removed from software at any time.
Windows Loader v1.9.7
The source argument of built-in recipes does not default to reading fromstandard input anymore. If you want toload from standard input, e.g. to pipe dataforward, set it to - explicitly. The deprecated --api arguments on thebuilt-in recipes have been removed and merged with --loader. Theprogress function returned by customrecipes now follows a consistent API and will always receive thecontroller and the return value of theupdate callback (if available) as arguments.
NUS Downloader, or NUSD, is a Windows program designed to allow easy access to the resources present on NUS. Using this tool, you can download, pack, and decrypt many system titles into WADs ready to install.
The latest compiled version of the software can be found on the project Subversion repository at Google Code in trunk/NUS Downloader/Latest/NUS Downloader.exe - note: no support will be provided for these releases, any bugs filed should be CLEARLY tagged and many features can and will be broken.
Test Kitchen was updated from 2.7.2 to 2.8.0. This release improves how we execute commands on Windows hosts to avoid failures from executing commands that are too long for the windows command line. Thanks for this fix @ramereth!

knife bootstrap wasrewrittenin Chef Infra Client 15. The knife-* cloud providers need to beupdated to use this new API. As of ChefDK 4.0, knife bootstrapfunctionality against the cloud providers will be broken. We will fixthis ASAP in a ChefDK 4.1 release. The only gem not affected is theknife-windows gem. It has already been re-written to leverage the newbootstrap library.
In RHEL 8, the kernel command-line parameters for systems using the GRUB2 bootloader were defined in the kernelopts environment variable. The variable was stored in the /boot/grub2/grubenv file for each kernel boot entry. However, storing the kernel command-line parameters using kernelopts was not robust. Therefore, with a future major update of RHEL, kernelopts will be removed and the kernel command-line parameters will be stored in the Boot Loader Specification (BLS) snippet instead.
