Google is working on a Coreboot replacement called Oreboot, i.e. Coreboot minus the 'C'. Slides for a talk about oreboot are also available.
@eldruin released a platform-agnostic driver for the VEML6075 UVA and UVB light sensor (so you can optimize your suntan) and published a blog post with some pictures of the device in action.
@therealprof wrote a blog post about porting an Embedded HAL impl of the digital::v1 traits for GPIOs to digital::v2.
If you have an embedded project or blog post you would like to have featured in the Embedded WG Newsletter, make sure to add it to the next newsletter, we would love to show it off!
