libubootenv is a replacement for u-boot-fw-utils. It is
hardware-independent and provides fw_printenv and fw_setenv tools that
are full compatible with the ones provided by U-Boot. A library is
provided to access the environment from an own application.
License is LGPL-2.1 and this allow to link the library to proprietary
code. The user of the tools should install the configuration file
"fw_env.config", as he is already used to with u-boot-fw-utils. The
configuration file is compatible with u-boot-fw-utils.
A full discussion about issues on current u-boot-fw-utils can be read on
