Hi Werner,

> Do you have a approximate time plan when you expect version 0.9.1?

I anticipated later this year, approximately Q4.  If you're programming
something against the ipmimonitoring tool, I wouldn't worry about it
working with 0.9.1.  It should be backwards compatible.  I'll release
FreeIPMI 0.9.1 w/ a ipmimonitoring script that will run the right
options on ipmi-sensors to output the same output in 0.8.X.

So you might want to check your eventual script against 0.8.X just in
case.  The output is pretty much the same, except the columns are
aligned for easier readability.
