Hello fellow hackers,

Some of you might remember that I'm working on graphics
support for our /boot/loader.  Unfortunately, progress has
been rather slow because of non-FreeBSD-related activity.

Anyway, I have now prepared a tarball containing a loader
binary for public testing.  If you are eager to give it a
try, please feel free to do so.  It should work with any
FreeBSD version on i386 and amd64 platforms.

I have posted detailed instructions on the FreeBSD wiki:

Any kind of feedback is welcome.

Best regards
