New in 1.99:
* Keyboard layouts support.
* New `lsapm' command (i386-pc only).
* Parser for GRUB Legacy configuration files.
* Support RAID on virtio devices.
* Remove deprecated `root' command.
* New `euro.pf2' font which supports most European languages.
* Avoid opening the same device twice on Open Firmware platforms.
* Extend `vbeinfo' and `vbetest' commands to non-VBE graphics, as
`videoinfo' and `videotest'.
* New `lsefisystab' and `lssal' commands on EFI platforms.
* Support explicit user claim that a device is BIOS-visible. Devices
listed in device.map will be assumed to be readable using only BIOS
facilities, rather than anything more complex such as LVM or RAID.
* New bash-completion script for GRUB utilities.
* Use ACPI to shut down if possible.
* New `lsacpi' command.
* Basic btrfs support (detection and UUID).
* New `--boot-directory' option to `grub-install', `grub-reboot', and
`grub-set-default', with clearer semantics than the previous
`--root-directory' option.
* Rename CD-ROM device to "cd" on BIOS platforms.
* Transparent decompression filters.
* Simpler PXE image generation. New `grub-mknetdir' utility to generate
netboot directory trees.
* New relocator. Allows for more kernel support and more
straightforward loader writing.

`until', `elif', function parameters, `break', `continue', `shift',
multi-line quoted strings, positional parameters with `setparams',

* Support nested partition tables. GRUB now prefers to name partitions
in the form `(hd0,msdos1,bsd1)' rather than `(hd0,1,a)'.
