Fwupd, a system daemon that allows session software to update firmware on GNU/Linux distributions, has been upgraded to version 1.8.5, which now includes new features and improved hardware support.
Fwupd 1.8.5 comes after fwupd 1.8.4 and reveals a new feature to display AMD APU/CPUs'' SMU firmware, an upcoming android-boot plugin to update specific block devices, capabilities for platform capabilities to set quirks, and a new plugin that includes the generic Intel Goshen Ridge code.
This release also includes support for new hardware, including the Corsair SABRE RGB PRO gaming mouse, more Intel Goshen Ridge USB-4 docks, as well as other Sonix CAM devices. In addition, it enhances support for existing devices, such as Wacom AES devices, which are now correctly updated, Ryzen 6000 systems to disable changing sleep mode, as well as PinePhone Pro smartphones to expose the MTD as Tow-Boot.
The fwupd 1.8.5 update allows specifying ESP when it comes to the DBX update, adds the capability to always verify BDP partitions when it comes to all available ESPs, removes the possibility that the error may be unavailable while updating a message for the DBX updates, and limits the archive size to 25 percent of the RAM or 4GB.
The importance of building a story is paramount.
