New version released (2.7)

Version 2.7 of dmidecode has just been released. It adds a new command line interface to dmidecode (and to vpdddecode to a lesser extent.) For example, it is now possible to limit the output of dmidecode to a given DMI type, or to extract a single string from the DMI table. The documentation has been updated accordingly.

Note that the default output of dmidecode was slightly modified to be more easily readable by humans. This might break tools parsing its output. Such tools may benefit from the new command line interface, although it shouldn't be considered stable until the next version, as it may evolve depending on the feedback I receive.
