I think it would be good to schedule the next SeaBIOS release (v1.9.0). I think the first week of November (Nov 6th) would be a good target date for a release.
There are a couple of pending features that I would like to see go into the next release:
- the fw_cfg dma interface. (Hopefully the fw_cfg dma interface will be accepted into QEMU in the next week or two so that it could make the next SeaBIOS release.)
- remove the "make VERSION=xyz" version override, and replace it with a standard version string that is more "reproducible" than the current identifier. (I hope to send some patches that implement a revised seabios version identifier later this week.)
Are there any other features or bug fixes that should be addressed prior to the next release?
