I have already downloaded v 1.96 and there's a news file as here:

New in 1.96 - 2008-02-03:

* The license term is changed to GNU General Public License Version 3.

* grub-emu is made optional. Now you have to use
`--enable-grub-emu' to enable it.

* Add Multiboot2 support.

* grub-emu can access the host filesystem now.

* Add support for the NTFS, cpio/tar and Reiserfs filesystems.

* Add support for ATA/ATAPI.

* Add update-grub script to generate grub.cfg.

* Add grub-mkrescue script to generate floppy or ElTorito images
(i386-pc only).

* Add support for background images in gfxterm (background_image command).

* Add support for detection of 64-bit support in CPU (cpuid command).

* GPT is now enabled in i386-pc target.

* Add grub-install for EFI.

* Ported to the following new platforms: Efika, coreboot (a.k.a. LinuxBIOS),
OLPC XO.

* Add support for colored menu (menu_color_normal and menu_color_highlight
variables).

* Fix support for loading Linux zImages (such as memtest86).

New in 1.95 - 2006-10-15:

* Number partitions from 1 instead of 0. For instance, the first
partition of "hd0" is now "hd0,1" but not "hd0,0".

* grub-probefs is renamed to grub-probe, and supports printing a
guessed OS device name and a GRUB drive name.

* RAID and LVM support is added.

* New command, echo.

* The disk API is changed to support 64-bit addressing.

* A TGA loader is added for the video API.

New in 1.94 - 2006-06-04:

* Fix several serious bugs in HFS+.

* Add experimental EFI support. Chainloading and Linux loading are
supported at the moment.

* Add a new command "blocklist" to show a block list.

* Use --with-platform to specify a boot environment. For now, efi,
ieee1275 and pc are supported.

* Use the filename "kernel.elf" instead of "grubof" on ieee1275.

* Install GRUB into pkglibdir instead of pkgdatadir.

* Support environmental variables. You can export variables by the
command "export".

* Remove the commands "default" and "timeout". They are now variables.

* Add the commands "source" and "." to include a file.

* Implement experimental Video API and a new terminal "gfxterm" based
on the Video API.


New in 1.93 - 2006-03-10:

* Add support for the HFS+ wrapper.

* Major improvements to scripting support.

* Menu entries are now scriptable.


New in 1.92 - 2005-12-25:

* Add support for GPT partition table format.

* Add a new command "play" to play an audio file on PC.

* Add support for Linux/ADFS partition table format.

* Add support for BASH-like scripting.

* Add support for Apple HFS+ filesystems.


New in 1.91 - 2005-10-15:

* Add support for LZO version 2.

* Support completion in the entry editor.

* Add VBE support.

* New commands, "search", "vbetest" and "vbeinfo".

* The option BOOT_IMAGE is passed to Linux.

* Add support for automatic decompression for gzip.

* Add support for terminfo and serial.

* Add support for x86_64.

* GRUB itself is a Multiboot-compliant kernel.

* Add new filesystems: XFS, SFS, and AFFS.


New in 1.90 - 2005-08-07:

* Rename the project name PUPA to GRUB. Now this version is the
developmental version of GRUB officially.

* The GRUB emulator ``grub-emu'' is added.

* Add support for newworld Mac. This should work with other
PowerPC-based machines as well, if they use IEEE 1275
(Open Firmware).

* Too many changes to describe. Look at ChangeLog for more details.


New in 0.7:

* Problems in cross-compiling PUPA are fixed.

* Use -mrtd and -mregparm=3 to reduce the generated code sizes. This
means that any missing prototypes could be fatal. Also, you must take
care when writing assembly code. See the comments at the beginning of
startup.S, for more details.

* New utility, ``pupa-setup''. This sets up PUPA to make it bootable
from a real disk.

* New commands, "prefix", "insmod", "rmmod" and "lsmod" are added into
the rescue mode to manipulate PUPA modules.

* Linux support is added. Initrd is not support yet.

* Reduce the size of a core image significantly by compressing a large
part of the core image and decompressing itself at boot time. The
currently used algorithm is LZO (more precisely, LZO1X-999). So you
have to install LZO to build PUPA. See
<http://www.oberhumer.com/opensource/lzo/>, for more information.


New in 0.6 - 2002-12-27, Yoshinori K. Okuji:

* The chainloader and the FAT filesystem are modularized.

* The structure of the source tree is a bit changed.

* Support for building loadable modules is added.

* Some generic parts of pupa-mkimage are segregated.

* Some documentation files are added, according to the GNU Coding
Standards.









I want grub v 1.92 or higher for hfs+ file system support. I don't Know how to install.

That's not GRUB but a pre-release of GRUB2, the replacement for GRUB that's currently under development.

You need to compile it. Open a terminal, cd to the directory, type "./config && make", then change to the root user and type "make install".

Go and install version 1.02 or later, of the LZO library, as the message suggests.

You might need to install lzo-devel (or lzo-dev or whatever it's called on your distro).

A very greatfull Thanks!!

[root@localhost grub-1.96]# make install
./mkinstalldirs /usr/local/lib/`echo grub/i386-pc | sed 's,x,x,'`
mkdir -p -- /usr/local/lib/grub/i386-pc
./mkinstalldirs /usr/local/share/`echo grub | sed 's,x,x,'`
mkdir -p -- /usr/local/share/grub
./mkinstalldirs /usr/local/bin
./mkinstalldirs /usr/local/sbin
./mkinstalldirs /usr/local/etc/grub.d
mkdir -p -- /usr/local/etc/grub.d
./mkinstalldirs /usr/local/lib/grub
[root@localhost grub-1.96]#

So its installed I think...
If it works, it will save my 15 hrs of work.

I have installed grub 1.96

is the make install command means installation completed or I have to do something more. above is the make install in terminal after successful ./configure and make commands.

After my computer start, it still shows grub version 0.97

You probably need to write the new version to your MBR, by running grub-install or similar. I would read the documentation if I was you.
