The ordering of the "-S" and "-y" flags has been fixed. The block-count of security commands sent via SAT (sgio) is now set to 1. FIGETBSZ is now used to determine the filesystem block size for fibmap. Sector dumps are now forced to the le16 output format. Many other minor improvements, bugfixes, and documentation improvements have been made.
