Fwupd 1.0.0 Released To Advance Linux Firmware Updating
With fwupd 1.0, there is ABI breakage as they removed a lot of cruft that built up over the years and also sought to improve some of the interfaces for this firmware updating project and its daemon. Fwupd 0.9 meanwhile will continue to be maintained for existing users not yet migrating to v1.0.
Hughes also shared that fwupd now supports 72 different kinds of hardware, support for another ~12 devices is currently being worked on, many vendors continue using or exploring fwupd, and around 165,000 devices each month get updated firmware using fwupd with LVFS.
