                          Q-Device! v0.6
----------------------------------------------------------------

                                  INTRODUCTION
                                  ============

Q-Device! is a tool for querying, controlling and performing diagnostic
operations on SCSI and IDE devices. Although it was primarily written for SCSI
devices, many of the options also work with IDE devices, depending on their
driver implementation. Q-Device! can provide you with quite a wealth of
information about your devices.

Version 0.6
-----------

ADDED  : Preference option to use SCSIF_AUTOSENSE, for the automatic retrieval
         of sense data. This option guarantees that sense data will not be lost
         however some device drivers do not support it, so it is disabled by
         default.

ADDED  : Decoding for the following device parameter pages:
          $1, Read/Write Error Recovery (Optical Devices)
          $1, Read/Write Error Recovery (Write Once Devices)
          $3, Measurement Units (Scanner Devices)
          $3, Parallel Printer Interface (Printer Devices)
          $4, Serial Printer Interface (Printer Devices)
          $5, Printer Options (Printer Devices)
          $6, Optical Memory (Optical Devices)
          $6, Optical Memory (Write-Once Devices)
          $7, Verify Error Recovery (Optical Devices)
          $7, Verify Error Recovery (Sequential Devices)
          $7, Verify Error Recovery (Write Once Devices)
          $8, Cache (Write-Once Devices)
          $B, Supported Media (Optical Devices)
         $1D, Element Address Assignment (Medium Changer Devices)
         $1E, Transport Geometry (Medium Changer Devices)
         $1F, Medium Changer Device Capabilities (Medium Changer Devices)
         $20, Format Parameters (Optical Devices)
         $21, Control Parameters (Optical Devices)
         $2F, Spindown Timing (Direct Access Devices)

ADDED  : Decoding for the following firmware logs:
         $30, SMART Sense Data
         $30, Performance Counters (IBM)
         $35, Cache Utilisation (IBM)
         $36, Temperature (IBM)

ADDED  : Recognition, but no decoding yet for the following firmware logs:
         $32, Physical Error Sites (IBM)
         $33, LBA Error Sites (IBM)

ADDED  : Significantly more fields to the already decodable device parameter
         pages. Q-Device now supports every page and field specified in the
         SCSI-2 draft. (In addition to many from other sources)

ADDED  : Media recognition (if device supports it) to the device paramater
         header, known types are:

ADDED  : Show defects option. Supports primary, grown or both defects in block,
         physical or bytes from index formats.

ADDED  : Rewind/Rezero button

ADDED  : Q-Device now supports information retrieval up to 64K, instead of 255
         bytes

ADDED  : Button to save the output to a text file

FIXED  : Changes made to host or port in the preferences window would still
         remain after pressing cancel.

FIXED  : Minor fixes to the following device parameter pages:
         $8, Cache: Some labels should have been 'blocks' not 'bytes'
         $C, Notch: Always reported boundary type as logical
         $E, CDROM Audio Control: "Format of LBA/sec" field was wrong, used a
             hex value when a binary value was intended.

FIXED  : Fixes to the following log pages:
         $1, Buffer under/over runs: This was basically completely broken
             before

CHANGED: Massive re-structure of the source code, no longer as monolithic

CHANGED: tcip-scsi.device has been temporarily disabled as it's in real need
         of a re-write to fix some enforcer hits and to support the new
         features.
