Each utility has its own version number, date of last change and
some description at the top of its ".c" file. All utilities in the main
directory have their own "man" pages. There is also a sg3_utils man page.

Changelog for sg3_utils-0.90
- switch from dated versioning. Previous version was sg3_utils001012.
Arbitrarily start at package version 0.90 . Start Changelog.
- incorporate Kurt Garloff's patches from Suse scsi.spm source rpm
- add Kurt Garloff's sg_test_rwbuf utility to read and write to disk
- clean up Makefile to include a "make install" (and also add a
"make uninstall").
- add "-uno" switch to sginfo
- make raw and sg devices equally acceptable to sg_dd and sgp_dd.
[Raw devices still not as fast as sg devices doing disk to disk
copies in sgp_dd but this may be improved soon. Still faster than
using dd!]
- change lseek() in sg_dd and sgp_dd to _llseek() [using code borrowed
from fdisk] so big disks can be properly offset with 'skip' and
'seek' arguments. [This change is significant for raw devices and
normal files since sg devices already use 31 bit block addressing.]
- rename sg_s3_inq to sg_inq. This utility allows the INQUIRY response
to be decoded as per SCSI 3 and 4. Also can probe VPD and CmdDt pages.
- change multiplier suffixes on sg_dd, sgp_dd and sg_turs so lower case
"k, m, g" are powers of 2 while "K, M, G" are powers of 10. This idea
borrowed from lmdd (lmbench suite)
- retire a few more less used utilities into the archive directory.
- add man pages for sg_dd, sgp_dd and sg_map
