Version 2010.04 of Grml Live Linux distribution, codename "Grmlmonster", has been released. Grml is aimed primarily at administrators and users of text tools, such as awk, sed, grep, zsh, mutt[ng], slrn, vim and many others. The most important new features in the Debian-based distribution are automatic boot parameter-based configuration of host RAID devices and a VNC mode which can also be selected via the boot options, thereby facilitating remote maintenance.

Other changes to Grml are more modest – grml-debootstrap for installing Debian Linux has been removed, and installation of Grml on USB drives and the build system for building individualised Grml LiveCDs have been revised. An overview of other changes can be found in the release notes.

Three flavours, small (100 MB), medium (200 MB) and the full version (700 MB), differing in the packages included, are available to download for both 32 and 64 bit systems.
