Release Notes: This is a test release towards 1.0. It should become 1.0 with minimal changes after some more testing. The 1.0 stream has lots of changes over older releases: new Intel CPU support, a daemon mode, memory DIMM error tracking, support for bad page offlining using predictive failure analysis (together with a 2.6.33 Linux kernel), a test suite, and much more. Note that the 0.9 stream has been abandoned.
Release Notes: Modifier command line options are now allowed after --ascii. A decoded address is no longer printed twice for --ascii. The SMBIOS anchor scan was fixed to work on more machines and no longer crashes when no anchor is found. --ascii reparsing of mcelog output was fixed. NONE entries are not printed in SMBIOS.
Release Notes: --ascii reparsing of mcelog output was fixed. --filter was added and known broken K8 GART errors are filtered out. The --ignorenodev argument was added and is used in the cron script (which avoids cron errors in Xen guest kernels). The new --dmi argument was added to resolve machine check addresses to DIMM numbers in SMBIOS (however, this is unreliable due to wide-spread BIOS bugs). Argument decoding was fixed to support -- and to allow arguments in any order. --ascii was clarified in the manpage.
Release Notes: This release has a P4 decoder for Intel P4/Xeon machine checks. It has support for DRAM error threshold registers (needs 2.6.15+) in AMD K8 Revision F. The --ascii description in the man page has been clarified.
Release Notes: The K8 decoder from the Linux 2.4 Kernel code was added to decode Opteron/Athlon64 logs. The --ascii function was added to decode fatal kernel output. The manpage was improved. 32-bit bugs were fixed. An uninitialized variable in check_cpu was fixed. Minor cleanups were made.
