This huge release (over 9000 lines of new code) finally adds support for Intel BootGuard v2 structures (that @prop263 made a PR for nearly 2 years ago), reimplemented from scratch using Kaitai Struct.

Other changes included in this release:

  • improved UEFITool icon for macOS build, thanks to @vit9696
  • Intel BootGuard v1 and Intel ACM parsers got replaced by Kaitai-based ones, thanks to @NikolajSchlej
  • added support for Meson builds for UEFIExtract and UEFIFind, thanks to @hughsie
  • added support for CMake builds for UEFITool (requires Qt6), thanks to @NikolajSchlej
  • added more Lenovo-specific GUIDs to the built-in GUID database, thanks to @crass
  • added several new static analysers (PVS-Studio, CodeQL, SonarCloud) to CI/CD pipeline, fixes most of the issues spotted by them, thanks to @NikolajSchlej

Special thanks to Fiano and CSS folks, I could not cross-check the new KSY definitions without them.

The first release of 2022 is mostly about testing the new universal binaries for macOS (i.e. when the single binary is built natively for both x86-64 and arm64), but it also has some improvements and bugfixes:

  • added support for parsing some some HP images that use EFI_GUIDED_SECTION_LZMA_HP GUID for their LZMA-compressed sections, thanks to @yeggor
  • added support for "Extract Uncompressed..." and "Uncompressed Hex View..." actions in UEFITool, both are useful in expecting the raw uncompressed data of compressed items, and will help catch and fix some otherwise invisible issues like #178, thanks to @NikolajSchlej
  • added support for proper parsing of ME File Partition Table header version 2.1, improved parsing of the previous versions 1.0 and 2.0, thanks to @NikolajSchlej and @platomav
  • fixed CI\CD, updated its configuration to use newer runners, fixed some Coverity warnings found because it's working again, thanks to @vit9696 and @NikolajSchlej
  • built Qt 5.6.3 as universal library for macOS, and updated and CI\CD to generate unversal binaries instead of just x86-64 ones for macOS, thanks to @vit9696 and @NikolajSchlej
