 Summary: smartmontools release 5.36 (STABLE)

 - Win 2000/XP:ability to cancel drive self-tests
 - Additions to the table of known drives
 - FreeBSD support for 3ware char device interface and
   multiple 3ware cards
 - Various cygwin improvements for running as service
 - Works 'out of the box' with Linux SATA libata
 - smartd option added to list test schedules
 - smartctl option added to list part of drive database
 - various improvements for SCSI disks and logs
