After about 1.5 years, we can announce a fresh flashrom 1.1. Right after branching flashrom 1.0, we merged SPI 4-byte address (4BA) support for most compatible programmers, enabling the use of flash chips bigger than 16MiB. Half a dozen new programmers made it into the release, and we also had some more user-visible changes.
New major user-visible features
- 4-byte address support for many SPI programmers
- New option to use a reference file for flash contents (--flash-contents)
- Layout support for coreboot's FMAP format (--fmap, --fmap-file)
- BAUD rate selection for Buspirate SPI
- Support for the ENE Embedded Debug Interface (EDI), probably our first non-jedec SPI target
- On Intel ME enabled systems, internal flashing is allowed by default
- ENE Embedded Debug Interface EDI
- Linux' MTD interface
- Digilent SPI for the iCEblink40 development board
- Developerbox/CP2104 bit banging
- J-Link SPI
- Dediprog firmwares >= 7.2.30
- Dediprog SF200
- Intel Kabylake PCHs
- KB9012 (EDI)
