E2B v1.56 released

PLEASE NOTE: Discovered a bug in the new grub4dos version! I have withdrawn v1.56 until a grub4dos is fixed! Please use v1.55 for now.

Changes in 1.56
  • New grub4dos \grldr (20140908) fixes exFAT bug with >4GB files + other small bugs
  • CPU 32/64 bit & Total memory displayed in Main Menu heading and Windows Install menu
  • New Sample mnu Files examples. 
  • Weird characters such as ()!''&| may now work if used in Windows ISO and .imgPTN filenames.
  • 'Boot any key to boot from CD or DVD' Windows install prompt suppressed. 
  • Default Aurora background compressed using lzma (reduced size). 
  • .iso64 family of file extensions recognised (only listed if 64-bit CPU). 
  • Fastload menu has changed (only seen if FASTLOAD is enabled) - now press F8 to refresh the menu instead of the separate REFRESH entry. 
  • Change Automn.g4b and Automn.g4b to use 56MB area of memory instead of 74MB area so can use E2B on systems with 64MB of memory or more.
Let me know if you spot any problems. The F1.cfg Help menu is in English in all languages and also some of the new text in STRINGS.txt (see end of file). Any translations welcome!
