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.
