Hi all,

Dmidecode 2.9 was released today as was initially planned. The changes
from 2.8 are as follows:

* Support of the SMBIOS 2.5 specification. It adds many enumerated
  values for recent hardware, as well as CPU core and thread count
* Decoding of 3 HP-specific entries. More vendor-specific entries can
  be supported later if vendors contribute code or documentation.
* Runtime detection of EFI, so that a single binary can support
  Intel-based Macintosh machines and regular x86 machines.
* Better IA-64 support.
* Fixes to the decoding of individual fields, including the CPU
  signature of recent CPU models.

* Support of the FJKEYINF entry point type (for Fujitsu laptops).

* The product name lookup table was dropped. It was unreliable and a
  burden to maintain.

* biosdecode, ownership and vpddecode are no longer built on IA-64.

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