It's been quite a while since having anything to report on with the LM_Sensors project, which is the free software project to provide user-space utilities and kernel drivers for various hardware sensors to be supported under Linux. LM_Sensors makes it possible to monitor the CPU/system temperatures, fan speeds, voltages, and other metrics for many systems and motherboards. The last time though we brought up LM_Sensors was in May when it received some better Intel CPU support, but the last major release (LM_Sensors 3.1.0) happened in March of 2009. Today though, LM_Sensors 3.2.0 has been released.

There's been updates to the kernel drivers used by LM_Sensors in each new Linux kernel release, but the LM_Sensors package itself with the utilities like sensors-detect and the sensor library has finally been marked as version 3.2.0. The prominent notes for this release is the libsensors library being relicensed under the LGPL, various fixes, and new ASICs being detected and supported by the sensors-detect program. There are minor fixes in this release to libsensors, pwmconfig, sensors, and sensord.

The LM_Sensors 3.2.0 release announcement can be found on the project's mailing list.
