          Release Notes: Identifies several new CPUS. Additional MSR decoding on various CPUs. A few misidentification bugs have been fixed. Completely rewritten cachesize determination. Various new cache descriptors added. Numerous MHz estimation improvements. AMD K7 powernow register/BIOS decoding. Now decodes extended Intel feature flags, cpuid brand field, and sSpec on some models. AMD Opteron/Athlon64 support. VIA Powersaver/Longhaul support. A --bugs option to display CPU errata. No longer retries opening /dev/msr if the first open fails. Fixes a memory leak in --url.

            Release Notes: Better formatting for narrow terminals, a command line option to print the URL of an errata or datasheet if it is known, and extra verbosity. There was a Pentium 4 Xeon Northwood identification fix, the addition of socket types for AMD Clawhammer, more Pentium Pro steppings, and a reorganisation of Athlon MP/XP/4/Mobile determination. The flags/eflags per-CPU check now tests that MTRRs are available before dumping them, and the VIA Cyrix 3 cache size errata is mentioned when the workaround is in use. Various code cleanups were also made.

              Release Notes: Added recognition for newer P4 Xeons, AMD Clawhammer ES, VIA Cyrix Ezra-T, and several new Intel cache descriptors. It is now possible to dump MTRR registers and decode the AMD K6 EFER register. The output of the machine check registers was reformatted, bugs discovered using valgrind were fixed, and the type of CPU socket in use is now displayed. There was also an internal code cleanup.

                  Release Notes: This release recognizes several new steppings of Intel CPUs. Several bugfixes have been made for x86-64 simulation. Intel P4 Xeon hyperthreading support and Intel cache Size/TLB information fixes and updates have been added. The MP bit of newer Athlons is now recognized. Warnings about the cpuid driver on UP are no longer printed. A script to make /dev/cpu nodes and National Semiconductor CPU recognition have been added.

                    Release Notes: Cygwin Win32 support, OpenBSD support, MP Table parsing, AMD K6-III write allocation report fixes, Cyrix III MSR decoding cleanups, improved Intel cache sizing code, ability to distinguish between chips with same cpuid levels, improved MHz calculation, and the ability to show silicon steppings on more CPUs were added. Feature flag reporting was rewritten. Various other cleanups & small fixes were added.

                      Release Notes: Updated AMD recognition for Athlon XP/MP, extra VIA Cyrix III support, faster MHz calculation, rewritten rdmsr code, preliminary BSD support, a fix to always use /dev/cpu nodes for CPU #0 in SMP, throttling extraneous warning outputs, and checking for cpuid before using.
