Yaboot 1.3.7 has been released, this is purely a maintenance release to
fix some minor bugs that have been discovered since 1.3.6.  The yaboot
1.x code base is in maintenance mode as all development efforts are
being centered on rewriting yaboot from scratch for a 2.0 release.

Unless you have been affected by one of the fixed bugs, there is no
compelling reason to upgrade.

Also some related news; yaboot now has mailing lists:

yaboot-announce         Announcements regarding yaboot (read-only)
yaboot-users            User related questions/discussion regarding yaboot
yaboot-devel            Technical and development discussion regarding yaboot

along with the #yaboot irc channel on irc.freenode.net.

          detailed automatically generated list of changes, and "changelog"
