This is another beta version of Rescatux. The last Rescatux beta was released on May 2019. That’s about five months ago.

This new version features two important fixes: Now Grub recovery in tmpfs enabled distributions such as Ubuntu will work again. Some uefi systems with secure boot disabled that happened to crashed Rescapp no longer crash it.

Additionally Rescapp menu has been reworked. Finally Rescatux live cd uefi boot menu and bios boot menu have been reworked.

There’s an ongoing joke on the Internet on fixing someone else writing something wrong on the Internet. Hopefully our new background is ugly enough for someone to reach us on 2019 Background should be improved issue and correct us.
