Dear freshmeat.net subscriber,

barsnick just announced version 9.32 of hdparm on freshmeat.net.

The changes are as follows:

The SET_FEATURES commands are functional again. "--user-master" now defaults to
"user" instead of "master", for better drive compatibility. The drive-supplied
timeout is now used for security-erase commands. The default general timeout was
raised from 5 to 15 seconds. Other minor modifications were made.

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:
