 +  * **November 23rd, 2018**: 3.5.0 Released! Get it from [[https://​github.com/​lm-sensors/​lm-sensors/​releases|GitHub]]. The release features improved device detection, sample configuration files imported from lm-sensors.org,​ improved hwmon device classification as a fix for a problem with chips disappearing with 4.19+ kernels, support for JSON output in the sensors program and more. See the top of the CHANGES file for a detailed list of user-visible changes.
   * **January 22nd, 2014**: 3.3.5 Released! This is a maintenance release. Get it from the Download page. Check the top of the CHANGES file for a detailed list of user-visible changes.   * **January 22nd, 2014**: 3.3.5 Released! This is a maintenance release. Get it from the Download page.

   * **September 5th, 2013**: Hardware breakage reported Over the past few months, we had several reports of sensors-detect causing serious trouble on recent hardware (most notably laptops.) We still don't know what exactly is happening, and while it might be reversible, we don't know how, so in practice this is equivalent to the hardware itself being broken. The symptoms are that the display starts misbehaving ( wrong resolution or  wrong gamma factor.) We have mitigated the risk by changing the default behavior of sensors-detect to no longer touch EDID EEPROMs and then to no longer probe graphics adapters at all unless the user asks for it. We urge maintainers to backport changesets r6040 and r6084 to all Linux distributions which are still shipping lm-sensors 3.3.2 or older. Versions 3.3.3 and newer are not affected.   * **September 5th, 2013**: Hardware breakage reported Over the past few months, we had several reports of sensors-detect causing serious trouble on recent hardware (most notably laptops.)
