Firmware Test Suite 15.06.00 released

Today Alex Hung of Canonical announced the availability of FWTS (FirmWare TestSuite) version 15.06.00. FTWS is useful to determine if your system has operational hardware/firmware. Besides command line tests, it has a curses front-end UI, and a FTWS-live distribution; FWTS tests are also included in LUVos, though I’m not sure if LUV is synced to the latest FWTS yet.

New Features:
  * lib: acpi: add an acpi category
  * live-image/fwts-frontend-text: add selections of acpi and uefi tests
  * acpi: add tests to acpi category
  * acpi: fwts-tests: Remove redundant tailing space and update fwts-tests
  * auto-packager: remove lucid
  * auto-packager: add wily
  * acpi: Add SPCR ACPI table check (LP: #1433604)
  * dmi: dmicheck: add 4 new DMI chassis types

New FWTS Discuss Mailing List Created

FWTS is the FirmWare TestSuite for Linux from Canonical. The project has had an Announce and a Develop mailing list; they’ve just created a Discuss list. This will be useful for enterprise users and security researchers who use these tools.

A new has been created for general Firmware Test Suite related discussions. Email from other related firmware projects may be cross-posted to this as long as they are vaguely related to fwts.
