Thomas Rini of the Konsulko Group presented at this week's Linux Foundation Embedded Linux Conference (ELC2017) about the state of U-Boot.

Rini has served as the "head custodian" of U-Boot for the past number of years and presented on the overall state and accomplishments for this Universal Boot Loader most commonly associated with ARM and other architectures.

Of technical interest and fun was how he covered the project's continuous integration and testing efforts as well as his board farm. Among the near-term goals for U-Boot are finishing their Kconfig migration, possible SPL + Linux and kexec support, more test coverage, answering more Stack Overflow questions, and expanding their Coverty test coverage.

Those interested in U-Boot can find out more via the PDF slides from this week's ELC2017 in Portland.

Also of related, interesting reading is the enabling new hardware in U-Boot talk.
