Date: Mon, 20 Dec 2010 10:35:52 -0800

The following is the beta release for FreeIPMI 1.0.

Here are the major highlights of the additions since 0.8.12.  I'd
appreciate any testing or sanity checks of portability to other OSes.
Please let me know if anyone finds anything.

Major Changes, Additions, and Features
o Remove ipmimonitoring tool.  Tool is now superseded by ipmi-sensors
  and the new --output-sensor-state option.
o Support --output-event-state option for ipmi-sel to support SEL event
o All config-tools now support multi-channel configuration under
  verbose mode.
o Re-architect libipmimonitoring to support all defined IPMI sensor
  types, OEM bitmasks, and OEM interpretations.
o Add SEL monitoring support to libipmimonitoring.
o Support new 'interpret' sub-library in libfreeipmi.
o Support interpretation rules for sensors when no states/events occur.
o Support interpretation rules for out of spec sensor states/events.
o Support interpretation rules for OEM sensors and events.
o Move all config files to /etc/freeipmi/.  Support legacy config
  files for backwards compatibility.
o Support serial keepalive in ipmiconsole to check if serial
  connection has remained alive across system reboots.
o Create symlinks and manpage pointers for 'ipmi-power', 'ipmi-ping',
  'rmcp-ping', 'ipmi-console', and 'ipmi-detect' to give some
  additional consistency to the tool naming.
o Various documentation updates.
o Update to support DCMI 1.1.
o Update all licensing information to GPLv3.
