GNOME Wants to Make Linux Firmware Updates Easier to Deploy with New Tool

At the moment, the GNOME Software Center only displays devices when firmware updates are pending, but Richard Hughes and Andrew Schwenn, an intern from Dell, have been working lately on a new tool that would be integrated as a panel into GNOME Control Center, which promises to make it easier for users to install new firmware versions for their hardware. Meet GNOME Firmware Updater, a new power user tool that would help you keep your hardware secure and up-to-date at all times by allowing you to more easily install new firmware updates that are available from the vendor. It comes as a GNOME Control Center panel and it’s complementary to the current fwupd functionality built into GNOME Software.
