Dear freshmeat.net subscriber,

barsnick just announced version 9.16 of hdparm on freshmeat.net.

The changes are as follows:

The "--trim-sectors" flag was added. New protocol-specific forms of
"--fwdownload" flags were implemented. Full word69 features reporting for "-I"
were added. Segfaults on failure of get_identify_data() are now avoided.

Project description:

and driver parameters. Most drives can benefit from improved performance using a
command similar to "hdparm -qm8 -qu1 -qc1 -qd1 /dev/hda".
