FreeIPMI 0.8.1 - 12/07/09

High Level Description of Changes
o Support ipmi-dcmi, Data Center Management Interface (often referred
  to as DCM or DCMI).
o Make output of ipmi-sel, ipmi-sensors, and ipmimonitoring easier to
  read and consistent to each other.  Under default output, sensors
  listed in ipmi-sensors and ipmimonitoring are identical.  Legacy
  output is supported through the --legacy-output option.
o Rename pef-config to ipmi-pef-config for naming consistency.
o Make output of ipmi-chassis, bmc-info, bmc-device, and info output
  of ipmi-sel, ipmi-sensors, and ipmi-pef-config consistent to
  each other.
o When querying active/inactive, allowed/unallowed, true/false,
  etc. status fields in ipmi-chassis, bmc-info, and bmc-device, output
  all fields instead of only the active/allowed/true/etc. fields.
o Support exclusion equivalent options (such as
  --exclude-sensor-types) in various tools such as ipmi-sel,
  ipmi-sensors, and ipmimonitoring.
o Support sensor unit percentages, rates, and modifiers (e.g. "%
  hit", "gigabyte per minute", "pounds / cu in") in most tools.
o Support non-abbreviated units (e.g. "Amps" instead of "A") in most
o Output IANA Manufacturer Name when appropriate in most tools.
o Support Entity ID based sensor naming through the
  --entity-sensor-names option in many tools.
o Support OEM interpreted output through the --interpret-oem-data
  option in many tools.
o "Library-ize" much of the functionality originally only included in
o Re-work libipmimonitoring to return sensor events for all sensors,
  not just non-threshold sensors.  Resulted in an API change.
o Removed many short options for more consistent command line
  "architecture" between tools and to ensure short options are more
  consistent between tools.  Limit short options to only the most
  popular options.  Short options have been removed from ipmipower,
  ipmiconsole, bmc-watchdog, ipmi-chassis, ipmimonitoring, ipmi-sel,
  and ipmi-raw. See details below for specific short options removed.
o Various new options and features added to most tools.
o Various minor feature enhancements.
o Various bug fixes.
o Various documentation updates.
