Subject[ANNOUNCE] sdparm 1.01
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. Virtually all CD/DVD
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 and Windows.

ChangeLog for sdparm-1.01 [20070405]
- add element address assignment mode page (smc)
- improve error handling in lk 2.4 series mapping to
sg devices
- add rule for mingw (Windows)
- include <inttypes.h> to use PRIx64 instead of %llx
- add LUICLR bit to extended inquiry VPD page
- correct some headers for C++ inclusion
- fix some C code to compile under C++
- fix bug when unusual transport or vendor given
- add a Fujitsu vendor mode page
- add "initial priority" to control extension mpage
- add "disconnect-reconnect" mpage to generic list;
there are still transport specific versions
- extend block limits VPD page (sbc3r09)
- sync with sg3_utils-1.24 pass-through code
