Does grub support ufs

hey,
I've done a lot of searching on the internet and I can't seem to find anything that answers this question. All I'm finding are old post from 2005 where it didn't have support for it. So does grub currently have support for booting from a disk with the Unix file system?

Version 1.98 from the source seems to support ufs and ufs2 (as well as affs, afs, cpio, ext2, fat, hfs, iso9660, jfs, minix, ntfs, reiserfs, sfs, udf and xfs)

Which one? Amiga or Berkeley?

I happened to be looking at GRUB2 sources just now. GRUB2 has support for AFFS (Amiga Fast Filesystem) and UFS (AKA Berkeley FFS) as well as many other filesystem types.
