Item posted by Albert Chu <chu11> on Sun 27 Apr 2008 05:56:50 PM UTC.

Release Notes:

0.6.1 - 04/27/08
For Users
o Add new tool ipmi-sensors-config.
o Add new tool ipmi-oem.
o Support --groups (plural) for multiple groups listing in
ipmi-sensors. Older --group (non-plural) option maintained for
backwards compatability.
o Support --list-groups and --flush in ipmimonitoring for consistency
to ipmi-sensors.
o Change --cache-dir to --sdr-cache-dir in ipmimonitoring for consistency
to ipmi-sensors.
o Change short option -f option to -n in pef-config and bmc-config for
consistency to ipmi-sensors-config. The -f option is maintained for
backwards compatability.
o Support -e (--escape-char) for alternate escape character in
o Change --wait-until-off short option from -B to -G.
o Support -B in ipmipower for consistency to other tools, although -B
offers no purpose in ipmipower.
o Support -F in ipmipower for consistency to other tools.
o Enhanced speed of ipmi-fru, by skipping unnecessary FRU data reads.
o SSIF Inband driver will timeout after a certain period of time.
o Support additional sensor monitoring interpretations in ipmimonitoring.
o Provide more detailed error messages in config tools.
o Support shared SDR caches for ipmi-sensors, ipmi-fru, ipmi-sel,
ipmi-sensors-config, and ipmimonitoring. (libipmimonitoring will
still use a different default cache directory.) This will require a
new cache generation for these tools.
o Support driver-type options for ipmipower ipmi version option.
o Modified SDR caching output messages in ipmi-sensors, ipmi-sel,
ipmi-fru, ipmi-sensors-config and ipmimonitoring to provide more
useful information.
o In ipmi-sensors, updated SDR output under verbose and very verbose
output modes with:
o More IPMI compliant field names. For example, 'Sensor Name' has
been replaced with 'ID String'.
o More correct output. For example, 'NA' will be output instead of
'0.0' when a value is not truly available. Fields that don't exist
will not have a default output.
o Fix incorrect hysterisis calculation and output.
o Fix incorrect OEM data output.
o Support more SDR record types for output.
o Output more SDR record information in general.
o Added new freeipmi(7) and libfreeipmi(3) manpages.
o Various other bug fixes, documentation fixes, and enhancements.

For Developers
o Many libfreeipmi API changes. Not counting specific tool changes
listed above, these API changes should not affect FreeIPMI user tools.
o locate/probing API revamped.
o SMIC driver/api removed.
o 'udm' renamed to 'api' globally.
o 'ipmi_device_t' device context renamed to 'ipmi_ctx_t'.
o New sdr-caching library added.
o Code re-organized into subdirectories.
o New header files for more ipmi spec subsections added.
o Support new 'ipmi_monitoring_sdr_cache_filenames' function in
o Store SDR with different format for ipmi-sensors, ipmi-fru,
ipmi-sel, and ipmi-sensors-config, ipmimonitoring/libipmimonitoring
for easier future extensibility.
o Packet names added to IPMI dump outputs in all tools for easier
packet identification in debugging.
o Make IPMI dump outputs consistent across all tools.
o Support driver timeout error codes in all drivers and APIs.
o SDR record dumping added into all tools.
o Various other bug fixes and enhancements.
