After talking about NVIDIA's ESA standard yesterday and whether it would appear for Linux users, we noticed that the LM_Sensors team is making very good progress towards LM_Sensors 3.0. The first LM_Sensors 3 release candidate came out towards the end of September. Distinguishing LM_Sensors 3 from the current stable LM_Sensors 2.10 series it is now only a user-space-only package with no kernel components needed. The i2c components for LM_sensors have also been split into i2c-tools. The sensor library, libsensors, also received a brand new API for LM_Sensors 3. Released in early October was then LM_Sensors 3.0.0-rc2, which contained a number of fixes. Most recently, however, last week marked the release of LM_Sensors 3.0.0-rc3. This most recent testing release introduced better handling of the default configuration file path.

For those that may be new to Linux, LM_Sensors is used for monitoring the hardware vitals of Linux systems and it supports a variety of different ASICs. More information on LM_Sensors and the 3.0 build can be found from their project website. The LM_Sensors team is especially interested in Linux monitoring application developers that use LM_Sensors, to try out the latest 3.0 code due to the API changes.
