It's been a half-year already since Coreboot 4.13 was released so out now is Coreboot 4.14 that is represented by over thirty six hundred new commits adding dozens of new motherboards now supported.

Coreboot 4.14 brings initial support for AMD Cezanne APUs, though the current focus on the AMD APU support appears to be in the context of support for Google Chromebooks as opposed to seeing much in the way of consumer device/motherboard support. Meanwhile Coreboot 4.14 now considers its Intel Xeon Scalable processor support to be mature. Coreboot 4.14 supports Xeon Scalable Cascade Lake and Cooper Lake platforms.

Dozens of new motherboards are supported by Coreboot 4.14 but most of them are new Google Chromebooks. There are also some AMD reference boards (Bilby and Majolica) and Intel Alder Lake reference vehicle platforms. Also worth noting in the new motherboard support are several System76 laptops, the Purism Librem 14 laptop, and the PINE64 ROCKPro64.
