I've now flashed libreboot_experimental-84-g2f2e2ee_grub_macbook21
(txtmode and vesafb) and can see no changes since 2016-05-29 (see below).

Since there are still three issues in txtmode and one in vesafb it
wouldn't be a perfect candidate for the new stable version I think.

I suggest the following changes for a vesafb release:
 * remove the "Poweroff" GRUB menu entry which doesn't work on this
computer model

For txtmode:
 * remove "Poweroff"
 * remove Memtest
 * fix the "error: variable `prefix` isn't set" message.

...or just skip txtmode for this particular release.

All the best,
