bits-372 released with these changes:

  • The BITS distribution now includes a bootable ISO image for convenience; thanks to deep magic in GRUB, this image also works as a bootable USB disk image. This image lets you create bootable BITS media more quickly and easily, though the resulting media does not support subsequent modification. For more information, see INSTALL.txt.

  • Add documentation in INSTALL.txt for upgrading an existing BITS USB disk by replacing the boot directory, without repeating the entire procedure for making the disk bootable.

  • Note that building BITS from source now constructs an .iso image using grub-mkrescue, which requires xorriso.

  • Correct the description of the new tests in the previous version of BITS.
