hdparm-9.38, hdparm-9.39 released

hdparm-9.39 is now available.

New features since 9.37 include the "-J" flag for adjusting the "WDIDLE3" timeout for Western Digital "Green" drives, and the "-R" flag for enabling/disabling on-drive read-write-verify operations.

Fixes include longer timeouts for "--security-erase" on large drives.
