The purpose of this page is +to list current high priority tasks, which are desirable and/or required for +the next release. + +Libreboot releases happen whenever Libreboot is in a state that the maintainers +agree is suitable to be considered for making a new stable release. This is to +be determined by overall consensus, per release. + +This page is updated periodically, to reflect the issues currently open on the +bug tracker. + +Port x86 to the Paper build system +---------------------------------- + +<https://notabug.org/libreboot/libreboot/issues/108> + +Paper is the new build system in Libreboot, feature-complete for ARM and with +many improvements, but the old build system is still used for x86 Intel and AMD +systems in Libreboot. + +Paper has more features, is more modular, is better designed and superior in +terms of maintainability. + +Dump coreboot as firmware upstream. Adopt librecore instead +----------------------------------------------------------- + +<https://notabug.org/libreboot/libreboot/issues/44> + +It may be necessary to keep coreboot, for the ARM chromebooks (rk3288 chipset). + +Libreboot is a coreboot distribution, which integrates payloads, utilities, +documentation, additional patches/fixes and integrates everything together. +You can think of it like a GNU+Linux distribution, but it's a distribution of +the boot firmware, not the operating system. Libreboot incorporates coreboot, +deblobbing it with deblob scripts. + +Librecore is a whole new fork of coreboot, and it is its own upstream, with +many coreboot developers working on it. It deblobs coreboot in-tree, without +deblob scripts. The only blobs that Librecore distributes is CPU microcode +updates, and we can simply exclude those in Libreboot, just as the current +build system deletes them after it downloads coreboot. + +Librecore generally has a much more focused team, and their priority is libre +hardware. It is a very suitable upstream for Libreboot, much more so than the +coreboot project. Librecore is a very new project (formed in December 2016). + +See: <http://librecore.info/> +IRC channel (on freenode): #librecore + +Its main developers are damo22, avph, funfunctor and others from the #coreboot +IRC channel. Of interest: damo22 and avph used to work for Libreboot, before +forming the Librecore project. + +Current board fixes in Libreboot's git repository, not in the current stable +release of Libreboot: + +- gm45: use correct vbt string (needed for external monitors) +- i945: add fake vbt (needed for external screens) +- ga-g41m-es2l: enable use of PCIe x16 port +- i945: add support for external monitors in grub +- add vesafb mode to ga-g41m-es2l +- gm45: add support for external monitors in grub +- Fix low-res screens on T60 +- add hda verb to t60 (fixes mic) +- gm45: fix IOMMU + +There may be others. The above patches are most likely already merged in +Librecore's main Git repository. This should be investigated. If so, then they +can be deleted from Libreboot since they would already be merged upstream. + +Reproducible builds +------------------- + +<https://notabug.org/libreboot/libreboot/issues/15> + +NOTE: Integrate librecore first. + +NOTE: Finish Paper integration first. + +ThinkPad X220 support +--------------------- + +<https://notabug.org/libreboot/libreboot/issues/48> + +NOTE: Merge after Librecore is adopted in Libreboot. + +ThinkPad T400S support +---------------------- + +<https://notabug.org/libreboot/libreboot/issues/7> + +NOTE: Merge after Librecore is adopted in Libreboot. + +Lenovo G505S support +-------------------- + +<https://notabug.org/libreboot/libreboot/issues/104> + +NOTE: Merge after Librecore is adopted in Libreboot. + +ThinkPad W500 support +--------------------- + +<https://notabug.org/libreboot/libreboot/issues/87> + +Merge this upstream in coreboot and librecore, and port downstream to +Libreboot + +NOTE: Merge after Librecore is adopted in Libreboot. + +ThinkPad R500 support +--------------------- + +<https://notabug.org/libreboot/libreboot/issues/107> + +Merge this upstream in coreboot and librecore, and port downstream to +Libreboot. + +NOTE: Merge after Librecore is adopted in Libreboot. + +Fix broken reboot on Intel D510MO +--------------------------------- + +<https://notabug.org/libreboot/libreboot/issues/103> + +NOTE: Investigate this in Librecore.
