The new GNU Grub 2.00 has just been released with all new features and here is how to install it.

Firstly, download the tarball from this mailing list post. https://lists.gnu.org/archive/html/grub-devel/2012-06/msg00093.html. After unpacking the tarball, cd into the folder and type:

./configure --prefix=/usr

to run the configure script. You will need to install extra libraries to compile the Grub package properly. This command will take care of this:

sudo apt-get install bison flex

then type make and once that has completed type sudo make install to install the new Grub boot-loader. After this has completed, type sudo grub-install /dev/sda to install the bootloader and sudo update-grub to make sure that the grub boot menu is up to date.

It is that simple!
