I would say that Coreboot should go for the greatest and latest. Since everything from far back in Time is refined, mostly bug free (unless the new releases do not include some new introduced bugs, which are fixed (usually) in immediate releases).
This is more matter of the right chosen strategy, which every package and/or library should follow.

I have noticed that both coreboot and seabios are using the very old versions of LZMA SDK. If we will upgrade our LZMA libraries from the outdated-by-12-years 4.42 to the current version 18.04 , speed and compression ratio should improve and maybe a few bugs will be fixed. Do you think it should be done, or you are OK with using such an outdated version?
