The grml project has released version 2012.05 of their multi-purpose Live CD distribution aimed at administrators. The latest release is code-named "Ponyhof" and brings a refresh of many of the included packages as well as a new numactl option in the grml-hwinfo tool to extract information from systems using the Non-Uniform Memory Access (NUMA) architecture.

Grml 2012.05 uses version 3.3.7 of the Linux kernel and its ssh boot facility now generates a password for both the grml and root users. Additionally, the new default mount target for the rescue system is /media. The developers have removed the grml-feedback tool, which was a new addition in grml 2011.05, without giving a specific reason for dropping it. A comprehensive list of all changes in this release can be found in the official release notes.

The grml Live CD distribution is based on Debian and is available to download for 32- and 64-bit systems as two variants in this release: grml-full (350MB) and grml-small (150MB). A combined image which supports both architectures can also be downloaded for each variant.
