It's been a while since having anything to talk about concerning LM_Sensors, the user-space side to Linux hardware sensor monitoring, but yesterday they finally put out a new release. The LM_Sensors 3.3.2 release is about two months behind schedule but comes with several changes.

The changes for LM_Sensors 3.3.2 include support for many sub-features implemented by new hwmon drivers within the Linux kernel, fix support for sysfs implementation changes in upcoming kernels, better printing of power sensors, memory leak fixes for sensord, and new chips are now recognized by the sensors-detect utility.

That wraps up the changes for the LM_Sensors 3.3.2 release. The brief announcement can be found on the project's mailing list.
