First Official Release HDT

This version therefore incorporates the 0.2.7 version of HDT (Hardware Detection Tool), the tool I mentioned in a previous ticket.

  • Pierre-Alexandre Meyer (WFP) for its active involvement in the project, he was responsible among other recasting the CLI to be effective in the next version of HDT. This new architecture of the CLI will be scalable and will include completion commands via the <TAB>
