skiboot 6.0.13 was released on Wednesday November 14th, 2018. It replaces skiboot-6.0.12 as the current stable release in the 6.0.x series.

This release includes one pflash change. This release does not modify skiboot itself, so there is no reason to upgrade to this version if you’re on 6.0.12 already. This release is made exclusively so OpenBMC can ship an updated pflash from a tagged release.

The pflash change is:

  • pflash: Add –skip option for reading

    Add a –skip=N option to pflash to skip N number of bytes when reading. This would allow users to print the VERSION partition without the STB header by specifying the –skip=4096 argument, and it’s a more generic solution rather than making pflash depend on secure/trusted boot code.
