The Coreboot folks are ending out 2018 with the release of version 4.9 that has 2,610 changes since their previous release just over a half-year ago.

The Coreboot 4.9 release features a number of code clean-ups to the different motherboard ports and all over, the Coreboot documentation is now hosted within the repository, the Intel FSP binaries are now integrated within the build system, and a number of older boards have been deprecated.

Coreboot 4.9 supports 56 new motherboards including a number of older ASRock G41 motherboards, various ASUS P5/P8 boards, nearly two dozen Google Chromebox/Chromebook boards, various Intel reference platforms, and a few Lenovo and Siemens boards. But support for 71 other dated motherboards were dropped from the source tree in 4.9 that were no longer maintained.
