Hi all,

Dmidecode 2.8 was released yesterday as was initially planned. The
changes from 2.7 are as follows:

* Dmidecode's --string option has four additional keywords available:
system-uuid, chassis-type, processor-family and processor-frequency.
These needed additional work because, technically speaking, they are
not DMI strings.

* IPMI interface type SSIF was added. This is a new interface type
defined by IPMI 2.0.

* Vpddecode has a new --string option, much similar in spirit to
dmidecode's. Available keywords are bios-build-id, box-serial-number,
motherboard-serial-number, machine-type-model and bios-release-date.

* 9 product names were added to the vpddecode lookup table.

* And of course, a few bug fixes, cleanups and minor improvements all
around the place.

This new release is available for download from the usual place:
