Announcing Speedometer 2.8

Speedometer home page:


New in this release:

 - Added a linear scale option: -l.  Best used in combination with
   -m (and possibly -n) to customize the range to be displayed.
   Thanks to jukie.net for sponsoring this feature.

 - Replace silly "curved" reading with a weighted moving average

 - New option to display all values in bits per second: -s

 - New options to set minimum (-n) and maximum (-m) values
   displayed on the graphs in bytes/s.
   Defaults are -n 32 and -m 2**32

 - Accept shortened versions of -rx and -tx: -r and -t
   My intent is to drop use of the original forms in 3.0 and add
   --long-versions of all options

 - Use IEC notation of sizes MiB, GiB etc.

 - Install script as both speedometer.py and speedometer
