Security-Oriented Alpine Linux 3.7 Has UEFI Support, GRUB Support in Installer

Alpine Linux 3.7.0 comes six months after the 3.6 series, which received only two maintenance updates during its release cycle, and it’s a major release that introduces support for UEFI machines, as well as support for the GRUB bootloader in the installer.
