    Subject[ANNOUNCE] sdparm 1.07 available
    sdparm is a command line utility designed to get and set
    SCSI device parameters (cf hdparm for ATA disks). The
    parameters are held in mode pages. Apart from SCSI devices
    (e.g. disks, tapes and enclosures) sdparm can be used on
    any device that uses a SCSI command set. Almost all CD/DVD/BD
    drives use the SCSI MMC set irrespective of the transport.
    sdparm also can decode VPD pages including the device
    identification page. Commands to start and stop the media;
    load and unload removable media and some other housekeeping
    functions are supported. sdparm supports both the Linux
    kernel 2.4 and 2.6 series with ports to FreeBSD, Solaris,
    Tru64 and Windows.

    The version tracks changes in draft standards from since October 2010.
