1) Linux Vendor Firmware Service launches
In a Phoronix article today, Michael Larabel describes the new Linux Vendor Firmware Service (LVFS) has been announced.
“This site provides a place for hardware vendors to submit packaged firmware updates, typically .cab files. This fire-and-forget service allows vendors to submit firmware updates without generating and hosting AppStream metadata themselves.”
2) Intel on Linux firmware updates
Brian Richardson posted a blog yesterday, with information on Linux fwupdate, UEFI Capsule (firmware updates), UEFI 2.5 ESRT, and the Fedora firmware update mechanism.
