    - Switch all images to initramfs.
    - Add netboot images suitable for USB memory sticks.

    - Add oem-config-check to all images.
    - Ship elilo configuration on i386 for Intel-based Macs.
    - Use mkvmlinuz's fallback object files on powerpc rather than relying
      on the kernel's.
    - Use ${RAMDISK_SIZE} in sparc's silo.conf rather than a hardcoded size.
    - Add input-modules to the sparc netboot image.
    - Remove auto-install/ai-choosers targets, at least for now.
    - Switch i386 builds to the -generic kernel flavour.
    - Add a new netboot/386 build for i386 that uses the -386 kernel
    - Publish separate kernel and initrd for sparc64 netboot.
    - Don't use win32-loader on Ubuntu.

      building reduced font.

  * Move mainline architectures to 2.6.27-9 kernels.
  * Move ports architectures to 2.6.27-1 kernels.

  [ Frans Pop ]
  * Test that a mirror supports the target suite before it's added to
    sources.list.udeb. Should fix build failures on lxdebian for s390,
    which includes an incomplete mirror in its /etc/apt/sources.list.
  * config/s390.cfg: avoid loading partman-auto during anna as guided
    partitioning is not very useful for DASDs.
  * Include isofs-modules in hd-media images now that the isofs module has
    been split out of the ide-modules udeb (kernels >=2.6.25).

  [ Martin Michlmayr ]
  * nslu2: Make sure the whole ramdisk partition is padded now that
    APEX tells the kernel to look at the whole partition.
  * Remove delo from Build-Depends since DECstations are no longer
  * Move arm, armel, mips and mipsel to 2.6.25.
  * Enable the netwinder image again.
  * Add images for QNAP TS-109, TS-209 and TS-409.
  * Add an image for the HP Media Vault mv2120.
  * Add an image for the Buffalo Kurobox Pro.  Patch from Per Andersson
    as part of his Google Summer of Code project.
  * Move arm, armel and mipsel to 2.6.26.
  * Move mips to 2.6.26.
  * Add a README to the arm images saying that the arm port is not
    recommended for new installations.

  [ Joey Hess ]
  * Use menu default64 support added to syslinux 2:3.63+dfsg-2 to
    automatically select the amd64 installation option on multiarch images.

  [ Colin Watson ]
  * Test OMIT_WIN32_LOADER in arch_cd_info_dir and arch_miniiso targets as
    well as arch_boot.

  [ Joey Hess ]
  * mountfloppy renamed to mountmedia
  * floppy-retriever renamed to media-retriever
  * Add usb-storage-modules to all netboot images that use mountmedia.
    This will allow loading NIC drivers/firmware from a USB stick.

  [ Otavio Salvador ]
  * Include firewire-core-modules on cdrom images (i386 and amd64) to allow
    usage of firewire dockstations (as found on some VAIO laptops). See
    #488267 for reference.
  * Move alpha, amd64, i386 and powerpc to 2.6.25.

  [ Frans Pop ]
  * Add ext2-modules for i386 boot floppy as ext2 is no longer built in.
  * Move hppa, ia64 and sparc to 2.6.25.

    keyboards to needed-characters/nl.utf.

  [ Ian Campbell ]

    and 64 bit hypervisors.

  [ Robert Millan ]
  * config/x86.cfg: Make desktop selection explicit in win32-loader.ini.
    Closes: #486907.

  [ Samuel Thibault ]
  * Optionally add a beep to the x86 syslinux menu, controlled by BOOTMENU_BEEP.
    This is enabled by default only for release builds.

  [ Bastian Blank ]
  * Move s390 to 2.6.26-1.

  [ Stephen R. Marenka ]
  * Move m68k to 2.6.26-1.
  * Add modules to cdrom.
  * Rename atari bootstra.prg to bootstra.tos.

  [ Frans Pop ]

    Graphical Installer images for i386 and amd64.
  * Rename syslinux config files (ad)amd.cfg to (ad)amdtext.cfg for consistency.
  * Drop languages that require a graphical installer for all arm and armel
    images to reduce image size.

    installer from the help screens. Closes: #500464.
  * x86: add support for installing to and loading drivers/firmware from
    MMC/SD cards. Closes: #498568.
