GRUB 2.00 released

Since this version has a round number it has been paid special attention
to, and hopefully, represents higher quality.

This is the first time we include an official theme (starfield).

This version also includes EHCI driver.

Support for using GRUB as firmware on Yeeloong was added in GRUB 1.99,
and for 2.00 this support has been extended to Fuloong2F as well.

This is also the first time we release itanium and SGI mips port. Later
is experimental due to problems encountered with its firmware.

The release file is bigger than it should be because of autogeneration
issues. Other than the size these issues have no impact but their fixing
is scheduled for next release.

GRUB, also known as the GRand Unified Bootloader, is a modular, portable
bootloader that supports a number of platforms, including standard
BIOS-based PCs, EFI-based x86 (32-bit and 64-bit) and itanium systems,
IEEE-1275 platforms (such as the OLPC and some PowerPC/Sparc64
hardware), coreboot, the free (as in freedom) pre-boot initialization
framework, Yeeloong (laptop) and Fuloong2F (mini-box), free (as in
freedom) Loongson-2F-based (MIPS compliant CPU) systems, big-endian mips
ARCS systems (SGI), as well as bare i386 and mips (either endian) qemu.
