Things have been percolating for a while, and it's time to release a
bunch of new stuff.
First of all, at http://openipmi.sf.net, I have uploaded a new document
to help users of IPMI and OpenIPMI. Take a look. It is very rough, but
I believe it contains a lot of useful information about IPMI in general
and OpenIPMI in specific. When it is finished, I hope it will alleviate
the need to have to look at the IPMI spec.
Second, I have lots of driver updates. See the Sourceforge release page
Lastly, I have uploaded library version 1.4.1 as an experimental
version. This has reworked the locking code so that locks are not held
in user callbacks. It also includes the previously reference document.
It has some interface updates (as I wrote the document I found
inconsistencies here and there) but should be fully backwards compatible
with the 1.3 releases.
PS - There are some people working on IPMI 2.0 RMCP+ LAN code, so that
may be coming soon.
PPS - If anyone wants to work on the document to flesh it out, please
contact me. There are lots of sections to work on.
