SeaBIOS 1.9 has been out since last month as the latest version of this open-source implementation of a 16-bit x86 BIOS widely used by Coreboot, QEMU, and other projects.

The SeaBIOS 1.9 announcement went unnoticed until seeing today SeaBIOS 1.9.0 being pulled into Coreboot.

SeaBIOS 1.9 features initial support for TPM (Trusted Platform Module), initial support for chain-loading SeaBIOS from GRUB, initial support for booting from SD cards on real hardware, VirtIO 1.0 device support, support for SeaBIOS on Bay Trail Chromebooks, SeaVGABIOS improvements, and many other changes.
