Dear freshmeat.net subscriber,

barsnick just announced version 9.30 of hdparm on freshmeat.net.

The changes are as follows:

The "-I" argument now reports the maximum number of 512-byte blocks of
range-data per DSM/Trim command. Consequently, hdparm and wiper.sh now use only
as many LBA ranges per TRIM command as the drive can handle. The man page and
the help text were cleaned up.

Project description:

hdparm is a Linux shell utility for viewing and manipulating various IDE drive
and driver parameters. Most drives can benefit from improved performance using a
command similar to "hdparm -qm8 -qu1 -qc1 -qd1 /dev/hda".

Detailed history and release notes are available here:
