Intel releases Firmware Engine for Linux and Windows

Previously the Intel Firmware Engine was a Windows-only thing, and I’d usually mention the lack of Linux support when posting about each Windows release. This time they’ve ported it to Linux!!! Thanks, Intel!

The Intel® Firmware Engine 4.0 release is now available. Intel Firmware Engine enables rapid firmware configuration and customization using a graphical interface, without the need for source modifications. Customers start from a validated Intel reference design, allowing developers to configure firmware features based on their product customizations. This development process accelerates adding & removing firmware features not found in reference platform, adding 3rd party components, and integration of custom boot payloads.
