Hi all,

Dmidecode 3.0 was released today. This is the first git-based release,
so I hope I got it right, please let me know quickly if you notice any

The changes from 2.12 are as follows:

* Support for SMBIOS 3.0. This includes new chassis types, new
  processor family names, new processor family upgrade names, new slot
  types, and new memory device types.
* Support for the new 64-bit entry point (_SM3_) defined in SMBIOS 3.0.
* Support for the new kernel interface (as of Linux v4.2) as an
  alternative to relying /dev/mem to access the entry point and DMI
* Decoding of Acer-specific DMI type 170.
* Decoding of HP-specific DMI types 212, 219 and 233.
* Various minor fixes and output format cleanups.

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

You will notice that bz2-compressed archives are no longer provided,
instead xz-compressed archives are provided.
