Dear coreboot community!

I want to wholeheartedly thank every single one of you, who has contributed code to the coreboot project, reviewed code, improved our documentation in the wiki, or has contributed to the project by other means. You all have helped create a truly great project.

In 2014 alone, more coreboot devices have shipped than in all previous years combined! Since the start of coreboot v2 in 2003, 345 contributors have put over 12 thousand commits, an estimated effort of 457 years (COCOMO model) into the project.

Exciting times! In the last couple of days, Google has released a major piece of coreboot support for the Intel Sandybridge processor and Cougar Point southbridge. This is the first time that coreboot supports the latest generation of Intel chipsets. In the next weeks more code will be released to support a number of mainboards with this processor/chipset combination. Stay tuned!
