Subject: Hardware Health Monitoring

This is an announcement of the latest stable release of lm_sensors version
2.1.1. Lm_sensors is a package which allows your Linux kernel to
communicate with various hardware health monitoring chips (if your
mainboard is so equipped) to find out such things as temperatures, supply
voltages, fan speeds, etc.

For more info and downloads:


Chips supported (as of this writing): LM78, LM78J, LM79, LM80, W83781,
GL518, LM75, ISA based interfaces, Intel PIIX4 SMBus interfaces, Via
south-bridge I2C interfaces, serial SMBus/I2C EEPROMs (on SDRAM DIMMs and
in Xeon Processors), and more.

This software is a must for unsupervised Linux machines such as servers,
routers, embedded Linux devices, etc.

Lm_sensors is under a GNU-type usage license.
