Smartmontools 5.1-14 has been released. Here is the incremental CHANGELOG
since the previous 5.1-11 release:
[BA] smartctl: added column to -A output to show if Attributes are
updated only during off-line testing or also during normal
[BA] smartd: attempt to enable/disable automatic offline testing even
if the disk appears not to support it. Now the same logic
[BA] Added definition of Attribute 201, soft read error rate.
[BA] Added IBM/Hitachi IC35L120AVV207-1 (GXP-180) and corresponding
8MB Cache GXP-120 to drive database.
[BA] smartd: if DEVICESCAN Directive used in smartd.conf, and
-I, -R or -r Directives used in conjunction with this, got
segv errors. Fixed by correcting memory allocation calls.
[BA] smartd: enable automatic offline testing was broken due
to cut-and-paste error that disabled it instead of
enabling it. Thanks to Maciej W. Rozycki for pointing
out the problem and solution.
[BA] Fixed "spelling" of some Attribute names to replace spaces
in names by underscores. (Fixed field width easier for awk
[BA,GF] Added mods submitted by [GF] to support Attribute 193 being
load/unload cycles. Add -v 193,loadunload option, useful for
Hitachi drive DK23EA-30, and add this drive to knowndrive.c
Add meaning of attribute 250 : Read error retry rate
[BA] Added another entry for Samsung drives to knowndrive table.
[DG] Refine SCSI log sense command to do a double fetch in most cases
(but not for the TapeAlert log page). Fix TapeAlert and Self Test
log pgae response truncation.
[PW] Added 'removable' argument to -d Directive for smartd. This
indicates that smartd should continue (rather than exit) if the
device does not appear to be present.
[BA] Modified smartmontools.spec [Man pages location] and
smartd.initd [Extra space kills chkconfig!] for Redhat 6.x
compatibility (thanks to Gerald Schnabel).
