+Version: 1.9.17

+Script Date: 2013-12-02
+-----------------------------------
+Changes:
+-----------------------------------
+New version, new tarball. Fixed new gnome change, they, of course, removed gnome-about
+and so version numbers failed. Now first trying gnome-session to get version number.
+
+Also, there's a bug in at least gtk detection in opensuse, not sure what it is, they could
+be using a different syntax for the test:
+pkg-config --modversion gtk+-3.0
+
+returns no such package on gnome 3.10 installs, but I have no idea what package name to
+test for there in this case.
+
+So leaving gtk version bugs unhandled due to no user information or feedback, if you want
+it fixed or if it works for your distro, let me know and also if it does not work, tell
+me the correct commmand, with its output, to get gtk version.
+
+That's for inxi -Sx output that is.

+New version, new tarball. Only for uprmq distros, small update to add support for another

+as well, apparently that is a possible output format in certain cases with urpmq.

+Version: 1.9.13
+Patch Version: 00
+Script Date: August 12 2013
+-----------------------------------
+Changes:
+-----------------------------------
+New version, new tarball. Fixed a bug in Xorg where it shows drivers as unloaded when they
+are actually loaded. Since we can't fix xorg, inxi will try to work around this bug by validating
+one step further in the Xorg.0.log data, to confirm that drivers noted as loaded/unloaded/failed are
+actually running the display(s) of the system.
+
+There is a possible case of error that might happen due to this change in the case of a system with
+a complex xorg that uses two drivers/modules to run two different displays, ie, nvidia on one, and amd
+on the other, for example, or intel/nvidia, etc. However, if that bug appears, we'll get that data set
+of debugging output and fix it at that point.
+
+This fix repairs an existing xorg bug that is unlikely to get fixed any time soon (the call to load the
+detected drivers, eg, vesa, intel, is repeated, causing a failure of driver already loaded on the second
+occurance.

+-----------------------------------
+Changes:
+-----------------------------------
+New version, new tarball. The recent bug fixes reminded me to check for ARM working, that had some bugs too,
+so I've updated that. -f for ARM now shows features instead of flags, and the -C regular cpu output does not
+show cache/flags for arm cpus becuase they don't have those features.
+
+Added some flags passed to various cpu functions and better detections of ARM cpu to handle dual core and other
+issues that were not handled before as well, or at all.

+Version: 1.9.10
+Patch Version: 00
+Script Date: June 19 2013
+-----------------------------------
+Changes:
+-----------------------------------
+New version, new tarball. Another stab at finally fixing the cpu / core count failures on fringe
+cases. This required fixing some core logic assumptions that are not currently correct, particularly
+on two cases, some xeon cpus fail to show core id for each core, showing 0 for all of them, second,
+vm cpus do not show physical ids at all for at least intel, nor do they show core id.
+
+While we can't get HT totally reliable, particularly for vm xeon, since inxi has no way to know in
+that case if a core is attached to a physical core or a virtual one, all of them being virtual in that
+case, but still inxi is now reporting the correct number of cores, or threads in vm xeons, and is not
+showing multicore cpus as single core, which was the main issue.
+
+This required redoing the counter logic for the cpu/core/physical arrays, now they are set independently,
+and can handle any of the others not being set, without creating an error or failure condition.
+
+Also added in last check for a certain intel case where core id is 0 but > 1 physical cores exist, that
+now also shows the correct cpu / core count.
+
+While this is tested on many data sets of proc cpuinfo, it's still possible there is a fringe case I have
+not seen that will trigger yet another unexpected behavior.

+Version: 1.9.9
+Patch Version: 00
+Script Date: June 16 2013
+-----------------------------------
+Changes:
+-----------------------------------
+new version, new tarball. Added support for openSUSE repo syntax/location, as long as it's
+zypp or yum it will work. If it's both then it will show only one I believe, if that's a possible scenario, no idea.
+
+Added one more fix for those pesky intel vm cpu core errors, now if /proc/cpuinfo shows no siblings at all,
+and no core_id, but does have physical id, it will use the count for physical id as a default for core count.
+
+Not perfect, but better than calling a dual core cpu a single core.
+
+There's still a lot of mysteries with vm versions of kvm cpus, for example, if you see a dual core xeon, is
+that actually one core with ht, or two cores? There is no way to find that information out that I can see that is
+reliable.

+Version: 1.9.8
+Patch Version: 00
+Script Date: June 14 2013
+-----------------------------------
+Changes:
+-----------------------------------
+New version, new tarball. Some subtle bug fixes, a kvm virtual machine uses disk id in
+/proc/partitions of 253, which made the disk totals fail to show up at all. Added that in.
+
+Moved sourcing of configuration files to right after initialize_data so that some variables
+can be forced to different values before the next set of system/app checks.
+
+This is to allow specifically turning off, for some headless servers where $DISPLAY is not
+null due to a bash configuration bug, these:
+B_SHOW_X_DATA='false'
+B_RUNNING_IN_X='false'
+
+Setting those two to false in inxi.conf will turn off all the X checks etc even if the $DISPLAY
+is set to non null.
+
+Added in support for ksplice kernel version, requires installed uptrack-uname, if that is
+present and if uptrack-name kernel version is different from uname then it will add (ksplice)
+to kernel version string, and use ksplice kernel version. Also created a single function
+get_kernel_version for use by short form/long form inxi output.
+
+For intel xeon cpus, trying a work around for a bug in /proc/cpuinfo which fails to show core_id
+or physical_id for cpus, using siblings / 2 for xeons with no actual core counts.
+
+Fixed a bug that made fixes for multimounted partitions fail for disk used. Added in support
+for also excluding single partitions mounted to different places.
+
+Also fixed grsec kernel different handling of partitions in /proc/partition and df -hTP, doesn't use
+standard partition numbering. This can't be perfect because inxi cannot know what the actual
+disk sizes are, but it's an ok guess. example: /dev/xvdac (uses 'c' instead of '3' for partition,
+and does not show anything for disk itself.

+
+That was too hard to type and too hard to remember. Also do more dyanamic reordering of weather
+output, depending on how much data is present, and how many x options are used.
+
+Added error handling for generic deprecated options, and for options that do not have the correct

+Changes:
+-----------------------------------
+New version, new tarball, new man page. Unless disabled by distribution maintainers, offers
+weather -w option. With -x, -xx-, -xxx, shows more information. Basic line is just weather
+and system time there. -x adds time zone, which is useful for servers, particurly web servers.
+-x also adds wind speed. -xx adds humidity and barometric pressure. -xxx adds a possible new line,
+if data is available, heat index, wind chill, and dew point.
+-xxx also adds a line for location (blocked by irc/-z) / weather observation time.
+
+-z filter applies as usual to location data, removes it in irc by default. -Z overrides override.
+
+The api this uses is probably going to be dropped at some point, so this is just going to work
+while it works, then it will need to be updated at some point, so don't get very attached to it.
+
+Also adds option to, with -w: -! location=<location string>
+This lets users send an alternate location using either <city,state> or <postal code>
+or <latitude,longitude> (commas for city,state and latitude,longitude are not optional, and the order
+must be as listed.
+
+If There is a developer flag if distro maintainers do not want this enabled, simply set:
+B_ALLOW_WEATHER='false'
+before packaging and the weather feature will be disabled.

+-----------------------------------
+Changes:
+-----------------------------------
+New version, tarball. Fixed a small issue that would create a wrong reporting of disk
+useage if bind mounts are used, ie, multiple binds to a single mount. Now inxi will
+check a list of the previously used partitions before adding the size of the used space
+to the total used, if the partition has already been used it will skip it. This was/is
+a quick and dirty fix, but it's totally fine I believe and should resolve two separate
+issues:
+
+1. use of bind mount method, where multiple partition names are bound to the same partition
+2. accidental dual mounting to the same partition.
+
+partitions section will still show the same data, ie, if bind is used, it will show all
+the bind mounts even when they are attached/bound to a partition that is already listed.
+This seems useful information, though maybe we can get the key word 'bind' in there somehow,
+but for now I won't worry about that issue, that's just a nice to have, not a bug.

+if you use -U or -! <10-16/http://>.
+
+Distro maintainers, take note, if you used the B_ALLOW_UPDATES flag, you no longer
+need to change the code anywhere, the error messages and blocking the -h output for
+update features is automatic as soon as the flag is set to 'false'.
+
+I needed to change the -! handling because -! is now also being used for extra features
+like -! 31 and -! 32 and probably more stuff in the future, plus the -! 30 used by
+things like the inxi gui tool being worked on by trash80.
+
+Also included in this version are more bsd changes, including initial function for pciconf
+data parsing, this will be used for -A, -G, and -N options for card data.

+
+Added missing CPU data message, fixed missing cpu cache/bogomips output, turned off
+bogomips if null for bsd systems because bogomips is a linux kernel feature.
+
+Added N/A for no memory report, this would mainly hit bsd systems where user has no
+permissions to use sysctl or has no read rights for /var/run/dmesg.boot.
+
+Many fixes for partitions, now for bsd, if available, uses gpart list to get uuid/label
+Added support for raid file system syntax in bsd, now excludes main raid device name,

+Added bsd raid line error message, added bsd sensors line error message.
+
+Many other small bug fixes that should make linux more robust in terms of missing
+data, and better/cleaner output for bsd.

+-----------------------------------
+New tarball. Tiny fix for an obscure fringe case, leaving numbering as is.
+
+In some cases, dmidecode returns the grammatically wrong message:
+'No smbios nor dmi data' instead of 'No smbios or dmi data', corrected the search
+to look for simpler: 'no smbios ' to avoid that random error.

+Version: 1.8.37
+Patch Version: 00
+Script Date: February 11 2013
+-----------------------------------
+Changes:
+-----------------------------------
+New version, new tarball. This update fixes a recent bug report with ancient dmidecode versions, that do not
+properly support the -s option. Now -M uses only one method for dmidecode, manual construction of the Machine
+data from the raw dmidecode file. The file output is also parsed a bit to make it more consistently reliable
+for inxi purposes.
+
+This update also includes all recent bsd branch updates, including the new #!/usr/bin/env bash on top which
+lets inxi run in any environment without changes. Also for bsd, sets sed -i/sed -i '' global value, which
+means that now all the branches are the same, except the bsd branches will contain the most recent tests
+and bsd handling.
+
+As each step is reached, I'll release a new inxi that should be stable, this is the first one however that
+can be used as is, no changes, for bsd, debian kfreebsd, and linux systems.
+
+Pleasen note that most bsd features are either incomplete or missing completely at this point, but it's a
+start.
+
+Some initial changes as well to help options to show more correct linux or bsd terms. These will be updated
+as time permits, it is a long process.

+Version: 1.8.36
+Patch Version: 00
+Script Date: February 8 2013
+-----------------------------------
+Changes:
+-----------------------------------
+New version, new tarball. All bug fixes and cleanup preparing to support bsd systems, including
+kfreebsd from Debian.
+
+Cleaned up all sed and grep that will be used by bsds, added more granular flag for bsd types.
+
+Cleaned up and corrected issues between bsd/linux, more escapes and tests added to drop error
+counts in bsds.
+
+Please note that you must use the inxi from branches/bsd for true bsds because sed has extra -i ''
+added, and has the proper #!/usr/local/bin/bash
+
+Added -! 16 for gnubsd download/update, that's for gnu bsd systems like gnu/kfreebsd from debian.
+
+That retains the top #!/bin/bash path, and also uses gnu sed so no -i '' syntax.
+
+Moved some grep -o to gawk or sed to avoid using gnu grep unnecessarily, leaving gnu grep where
+it will be linux only, for example parsing a /proc file.
+
+Fixed tty irc bugs for bsds and linux, now should show the right console size for both, ideally.

+Version: 1.8.35
+Patch Version: 00
+Script Date: February 7 2013
+-----------------------------------
+Changes:
+-----------------------------------
+New version, new tarball. Note, this is a refactor release only, and features the core bsd
+support built in, although inxi will not run in bsd unless the top: #!/bin/bash is changed
+to #!/usr/local/bin/bash
+
+The actual bsd branch can be grabbed from:
+http://inxi.googlecode.com/svn/branches/bsd/inxi
+then you can keep that version updated using: inxi -! 15
+which will grab the latest bsd version from the svn server.
+
+This release also fixes a lot of small bugs that testing for bsd support exposed, but functionally
+most people should see no difference, I just want to get this version up because there are
+so many small changes that it's worth having a release.
+
+I was going to have the fixed dmidecode for old systems in 1.8.35 but that will have to wait til
+1.8.36
+
+Linux users should see no real changes, except maybe a thing or two will work in certain circumstances
+when it didn't before, like showing MHz on ARM cpus on short inxi.

+Script Date: January 28 2013
+-----------------------------------
+Changes:
+-----------------------------------
+New version, new tarball, new man page. Fixed an old bug where if you start inxi with
+an ssh command sometimes it will not show any client information, just the debugger
+PPID output. Now it will test as a final check to see if it can detect any parent to
+the process. Actually grandparent I believe. Seems to work, it's a fringe case but
+why not handle it?
+
+New -xx feature, for -I it will show, if inxi is not running in IRC client and if
+is running in X, and if the grandparent is not 'login', will show the application
+the shell is running in.
+
+Example:
+Info: Processes: 271 Uptime: 5:36 Memory: 3255.8/4048.5MB Runlevel: 3
+ Gcc sys: 4.7.2 alt: 4.0/4.2/4.4/4.5/4.6

+Also fixed a small bug where the copyright shows current year, not the actual year of the inxi
+copyright contained in the top comment header.

+-----------------------------------
+Changes:
+-----------------------------------
+New Version, new tarball. Added inxi.changelog to tarball as well.
+
+Continuing fixes for ARM cpus, it was noted that short form inxi failed to show cpu speed
+derived from bogomips. That's because of the old min/max output that short form used.
+
+Updated that section to now use N/A as flag, and if N/A for min/max speed, use the speed
+given from first cpu array index, the one derived from bogomips for ARM/razberry pi.
+
+Note that there is still no other ARM /proc/cpuinfo available to see if the razberry pi
+fixes work for all ARM cpus, but the fixes will stop hangs and endless loops at worst,
+and may also show some type of cpu speeds for ARM cpus that are not in razpi devices.

+-----------------------------------
+Changes:
+-----------------------------------
+Bug fix, new version, new tarball.
+
+quick work around fix for razberrie pi, get cpu data hung on arm /proc/cpuinfo because
+it doesn't use the standard processor : [digit] format, but uses a string in the
+processor : field, which then hangs inxi which was expecting an integer.
+
+Corrected this with a work around, but it will require a lot more ARM /proc/cpuinfo samples
+before the support for ARM can be considered stable.
+
+For cpu speed, following wikipedia, used bogomips being equal to 1x cpu speed, to derive cpu speed.
+
+Better than nothing I guess, but will be wrong in other cases, particularly with dual core arm.
