Hi all,

For those of you who didn't notice yet, dmidecode 2.7 was released one
week ago as was initially planned. The changes from 2.6 are as follows:

* Dmidecode 2.7 adds a new command line interface to dmidecode (and to
vpdddecode to a lesser extent.) For example, it is now possible to limit
the output of dmidecode to a given DMI type, or to extract a single
string from the DMI table. The documentation has been updated

* The default output of dmidecode was slightly modified to be more
easily readable by humans. This might break tools parsing its output.
Such tools may benefit from the new command line interface, although
this interface shouldn't be considered stable until version 2.8, as it
may evolve depending on the feedback I receive.

* Six product names were added to vpddecode.
