Multiple GRUB terminals

To be found in Vladimir’s “multiple terminal” branch, GRUB 2 displays in multiple terminals simultaneously, with a separate menu viewer for each one, resulting in menus with different metrics rendering the same content!

In this screenshot, GRUB running in QEMU with a serial terminal attached to it in a separate window:

Expect this to land in GRUB Experimental branch soon.

    Now it’s in experimental and there it works fine together with gfxmenu. So you can have graphical menu on normal screen and text menu on serial console

      How about plain console menu (non-graphical) + serial console simultaneously? Is that possible as well?

        Yes. For example:

        serial –speed=xxx
        terminal_output console,serial ; terminal_input console.serial
