v1.0.7 Released

The new version has been released. Right now only source is available (no AIX binaries). Simplified the device status page and added some better information to the manual. Also added an include file required for ArchLinux thanks to some user feedback (see changelog).

v1.0.6 Released - AIX working!

Quite a few configure options have been added to fix possible problems with special drives and sense data is now outputting properly should your drive not accept the commands that you give it. Be sure to read the manual if you are having trouble.

Some drives may be able to tell you if you are using a mismatched key, and what the uKAD is of the key that is on the volume. This is one of a few other security related upgrades.

This version also allows you to use key sizes other than 256 bit (although the manual says otherwise) should your drive support it. ... read more
