Phoronix: Intel Puts Out TianoCore For Broadwell, Bay Trail
TianoCore, the open-source UEFI implementation backed by Intel that was just talked about in Google Pushes "Project PIANO" Into Coreboot, already has support for Intel's yet-to-be-released Broadwell and Bay Trail processors...
you can't miss the mark much more than with this article
No, it hasn't. The code in question is some generic glue code, and what Intel released is the wrapper code for the components that Intel (as usual) won't publish (I'll be happy to be proven wrong).

Then they provide compatibility code (as part of Tiano) so this code can be used with current EDK2 (which contains secure boot support). This compatibility code, a frozen copy thereof, is what they published here. All current UEFI vendors use current EDK2, as you can discern from their press statements.
I assume they do this so some of their partners can use the ancient code based they forked from (without the new compatibility package) - eg. Apple, which still uses some EFI 1.x version - with current drivers, but don't know for sure.
