About the current initramfs-simple version…

The version of initramfs-simple currently available is an old version, written for Debian Etch.

Site update…

Internet Explorer users should now be able to access the pages, they will be served with the text/html MIME type for them. Those using a real browser will still get valid XHTML 1.1 pages with the correct MIME type (application/xhtml+xml).
