Software update: Ventoy 1.0.14

Spread the love

Ventoy is an open source program with which self-starting USB sticks can be made. However, the way it does that is different from comparable tools. The USB stick only needs to be prepared once and then as many ISO files can be placed or modified on the stick as there is space. Ventoy automatically creates a boot menu for the existing iso files. Support is in place for both uefi and legacy boot and it has been tested with over 300 different iso files. Below is the changelog for the last two versions.
