In general yes, Intel does plan to continue developing of FSP for future platforms. We
will make a good faith effort to keep the publically posted FSP binary freshly updated. I
would like to caution that as a platform ages, our internal development shifts to newer
ones. Accordingly, I would expect the frequency of FSP releases to lengthen as a platform

Subject: Re: [coreboot] Kaby Lake FSP
Thanks a lot for listening to our request and taking care of this! I'm happy to see
the binaries finally updated and the FSP headers in coreboot having a matching publicly
available binary to use.
You've only mentioned Kabylake in your email, is it safe to assume that you'll use
these same practices for future platforms as well ?

I am a UEFI firmware architect working for Intel Corp. One of my focus areas is FSP.
There was some prior discussion here regarding the lack of public updates for Kaby Lake
FSP binaries and headers and questions regarding specialized FSP binaries being built for
specific boards. I would like to clear up some of these questions and concerns. We just
pushed all of the recently released versions of Kaby Lake FSP (3.1.0 through 3.6.0) to
. While there might appear to be forks of
Kaby Lake FSP, they are actually just snapshots at different points in time. For example,
there is one commit labelled as "Gold release for Kaby Lake FSP" that appears to
be special fork for IoT devices... this commit is actually just Kaby Lake FSP Release
2.6.0 without any IoT specific modifications. Apologies for the confusing commit messages
and for the temporary lapse in updates.
