Shared Library Changes for Release 0.9.8
The libddcutil SONAME is now libddcutil.so.2. It was incremented since libddcutil 0.9.8 is not backward compatible with release 0.9.7. In conformance with Debian practice, the package name is now libddcutil2.
|Structs and Enums||Change|
|enum DDCA_Trace_Group||added value DDCA_TRC_SLEEP to trace sleep operations|
|enum DDCA_Trace_Options||added DDCA_TRCOPT_TIMESTAMP: trace messages should show timestamps|
|enum DDCA_Trace_Options||added DDCA_TRCOPT_THREAD_ID trace messages should show thread id|

Note: The change to struct DDCA_Feature_Metadata is not backward ABI compatible, resulting in the SONAME bump.

|ddca_set_glolbal_sleep_multiplier()||get sleep multiplication factor|
|ddca_set_trace_options()||set trace message options|

libddcutil Developmment Package
The libddcutil development package, named libddcutil-dev on some platforms and libddcutil-devel on
others, has the following changes.
- Package config file ddcutil.pc is now installed in directory /usr/share/pkgconfig. Previously it was installed in the ddcutil data directory, typically /usr/share/ddcutil/data, and left for the user to install in the proper location.
- Cmake configuration file FindDDCUtil.cmake is now installed in /usr/share/cmake/Modules, not the ddcutil data directory (typically /usr/share/ddcutil/data), where it was left for the user to install in the proper location.
