To help with maintenance in stable distributions, we practice point releases now :) The log is short, there were just six fixes since flashrom 1.0 (plus one commit to make the 1.0.x branch build on recent distributions).
Changes since 1.0
6b9e934flinux_spi: Reduce maximum read chunksize
Improves compatibility with older Linux kernels that interpreted the interface differently.
30c4cecdMakefile: Disable `-Werror=deprecated-declarations` on release branch
Just to be able to compile the 1.0.x branch on newer systems.
5639af64linux_spi: Hardcode default spispeed of 2MHz
Default speed of kernel drivers isn't always sane (any more).
993e162ddediprog: Fix small, unaligned reads
An actual bug, discovered during experiments with arbitrary layouts.
ec8b8a7fboard_enable.c: Fix dmi_match string for ThinkPad X201
Probably just wasn't tested before.
69f96f60Fix verification with sparse layouts
A regression that sneaked into flashrom-1.0: When verifying the whole flash after a partial write with a sparse layout (i.e. a layout whose regions don't cover the whole chip), flashrom tried to verify against the wrong data and failed.
a3db7ed5Fix erasing of unaligned regions
This never worked correctly from the beginning. We completely erased every block that touched an included layout region. Now, we restore surrounding data in case a block expands beyond the region.
