In recent days there have been a number of interesting code commits made to the growing Google-backed Coreboot project.
Two commits in particular to point out include:
Add support for XHCI (USB 3.0)
- For AMD/Parmer platforms, there is now USB 3.0 support when using this open-source BIOS/UEFI replacement.
qemu: add q35 support
- Coreboot now supports Intel Q35 chipset emulation. Q35 chipset emulation was one of the new features -- as a more modern emulated motherboard chipset -- added to QEMU 1.4.
Plus there's been many other commits
for those interested in this promising free software project.
