Subject: [Announce] sg3_utils-1.38 available

sg3_utils is a package of command line utilities for sending
SCSI and some ATA commands to devices. This package targets
the Linux 3, 2.6 and 2.4 kernel series. It also has ports to
FreeBSD, Tru64, Solaris, and Windows (cygwin and MinGW).

Users of sg_xcopy note that the default recipient of the
xcopy(lid1) command has changed from the source to the
destination device. An environment variable [XCOPY_TO_SRC] can
re-instate the previous default. This version tracks various
changes made by since October 2013.

For an overview of sg3_utils and downloads see this page:
The sg_ses utility (for enclosure devices) is discussed at:
