Hi everyone,

I've put up a beta release of FreeIPMI 0.8.1.beta1 here:

I'd appreciate any testing, input, etc. from people.  There are a few
feature changes that I would like to get some input on.  I am open to
changing, reverting, or adjusting based on user input.  Attached to the
e-mail is the official NEWS release that lists all the changes in
glorious detail.

New ipmi-sensors/ipmi-sel/ipmimonitoring default output:

The default output of ipmi-sensors, ipmi-sel, and ipmimonitoring has
been modified for easier readability and consistency to each other.
Some information is not output but by default anymore and is available
through new options or increased verbosity.  A variety of new options
are available for alternate outputs too.

A) Do people like the new output format?  Is it easier to read (which is
my primary goal)?

B) Are there any options like --entity-sensor-names,
--no-sensor-type-output, --non-abbreviated-units, etc. that people think
should be default rather than an option?

C) Is there an output that should be default instead, or have an option
to give an alternate output?

D) Does the --legacy-output option not fully maintain backwards
compatability and break anybody's scripts??

Things I would appreciate testing on

I'd appreciate people trying them out on their systems to make sure
everything still outputs fine and I make any new corner cases.  I'm
particularly interested in ensuring I didn't break:

A) The --bridge-sensors options on ipmi-sensors and ipmimonitoring

B) Multirecords outputs on ipmi-fru.

C) Workarounds, most notably the Intel workarounds

D) The new ipmi-dcmi tool, which I have not been able to fully vet due
to lack of a system.

Any feedback would be appreciated before I release.
