Hi Daniel.

Thank you for your release plan.

I would like to ask, can GRUB-2.12 add a new LoongArch architecture support?

LoongArch is a RISC instruction set from China. Currently, Linux-5.19 adds LoongArch CPU support and will support complete EFIStub in version 5.20.

On GRUB, including 2 patch sets:

1. Add the basic support of LoongArch so that GRUB can run on the LoongArch machine. See

2. Add the loader for kernel, but it depends on a series of patch of Loadfile2. See

These patchs are already available, and tested on CLFS and Archlinux for LoongArch.

If we plan to support LoongArch in GRUB-2.12, I will update these patchs and release the 4th version of the patch for review.

I am going to release GRUB 2.12 around October 2022. I will publish
exact dates closer to the release and at least month before freeze date.
If you think some features and fixes should land in the GRUB 2.12 please
replay to this email.

I am not going to release any of earlier released versions with recent
security fixes on top of them. Though if somebody wants to step up and
prepare them I am happy to create relevant branch in the GRUB git repository.
