coreboot 4.1 released

It has been 5 years since coreboot 4.0, so coreboot 4.1 is a big deal! Excerpting the coreboot blog:

“There have been as many significant original developments, such as support for many new architectures (ARM, ARM64, MIPS, RISC-V), and related architectural changes like access to non-memory mapped SPI flash, or better insight about the internals of coreboot at runtime through the cbmem console, timestamp collection, or code coverage support.”

In addition to new features, it appears coreboot will get on a more regular release cycle:

“Future releases will happen more frequently, and with more guarantees about the state of the release, like having a cool down phase where boards can be tested and so on. I plan to create a release every three months, so the changes between any two release don’t become too overwhelming. Starting with coreboot 4.1, we will maintain a high level changelog and ‘flag days’ document. The latter will provide a concise list of changes which went into coreboot that require chipset or mainboard code to change to keep it working with the latest upstream coreboot.”

I am looking forward to seeing how this release works with the UEFI CoreBootPkg…
