Libreboot 20211122 released!

Filed under
GNU

The last Libreboot release, version 20210522, was released on May 22nd in 2021. This new release, Libreboot 20211122, is released today on November 22nd, 2021. This is yet another testing release, so expect there to be some bugs. Every effort has been made to ensure reliability on all boards, however.

You can find this release in the testing directory on Libreboot release mirrors. If you check in the stable directory, you’ll still only find the 20160907 release in there, so please ensure that you check the testing directory!

This is a bug fix release, relative to 20210522. No new boards or major features have been added, but several problems that existed in the previous release have now been fixed.

    Libreboot 20211122 has been released as the downstream fork of Coreboot on providing fully free software boot firmware support.

    Libreboot continues taking the more fully free software approach to system firmware than upstream Coreboot that will accept ports requiring binary blobs and other non-free software components. Libreboot also aims to be easier to setup/deploy than Coreboot.

  • Libreboot 20211122 Released, a completely free Coreboot distribution - itsfoss.net

    Published release free firmware boot Libreboot 20,211,122 . This is the third release of the GNU Project and continues to be touted as a test release as it requires additional stabilization and testing. Libreboot develops a completely free project fork of the CoreBoot, providing a binary-stripped replacement for proprietary UEFI firmware and BIOS that are responsible for initializing CPU, memory, peripherals and other hardware components.

    Libreboot is aimed at creating a system environment that allows you to completely do without proprietary software, not only at the operating system level, but also firmware that provides loading. Libreboot not only removes non-free components from CoreBoot, but also enhances it with tools to make it easier for end users to use, creating a distribution that can be used by any user with no special skills.
