    Release Notes: This release includes autodim, brightness key handling, showing the suspend log in case of an error, a warning dialog with countdown before autosuspend, and active desktop session handling via ConsoleKit/PolicyKit (including letting powersave handle PM if a session becomes inactive). This release uses KDebug for logging and debugging. It includes many other (smaller) improvements and bugfixes, including translation updates.

      Release Notes: This release is a major step to the next stable KPowersave tree. With this version, the config dialog provides: create/delete schemes, per-scheme CPU Freq policy, define actions for button events (e.g. suspend to disk or shutdown), config battery levels and actions for each level, and define default battery and AC scheme. There is no longer any need to edit the config file manually. This release fixes many bugs from the last version, and updates some languages.

        Release Notes: This is the first version without a depencency on the powersave daemon/package. It depends on HAL >= 0.5.8.1, and uses it to get all hardware info and set suspend/brightness/CPUFreq. Depending on your system, you may need D-Bus and PolicyKit. pm-utils is preferred to suspend via HAL. This release handles complete schemes including: CPUFreq, battery warning levels and actions, AC/battery default schemes, and lidclose actions. Users can't change these new settings via the GUI, only the config file.

          Release Notes: This release depends on powersave >= 0.12.18. It fixes autosuspend and inactivity detection (workarounds for broken X libraries), fixes the DCOP function for autosuspend, fixes detection/handling if DBUS/HAL/powersaved are not running, fixes the config dialog to respect DPMS timeout rules, checks the applet menu before trigger autosuspend, fixes distribution detection in configure, and changes the default bug reporting links for dists. It adds missing DCOP functions, allows changing brightness with the mouse wheel over the applet icon, and updates the autosuspend blacklist and translations.

            Release Notes: This release fixes several UTF-8 issues for the knotify dialog, fixes tooltip and displayed remaining time on APM (incl. code cleanup), and fixes the detailed dialog for multiprocessor/-core machines without CPUFreq or throttling support and offline CPUs/Cores. It also include translation updates (fi, km, pl, and ru), an updated README, and an additional configure check for dbus-qt3-devel. For Fedora, it is strongly recommended to update powersave to 0.12.17 (powersave is added automatically to boot). For all other distributions, updating powersave is also recommended.

              Release Notes: Several fixes were made for the processor information in the detailed dialog. gnome-screensaver lock support was added. Notification after autosuspend was fixed. The links for bugreports were fixed and updated. The timeout for the initial connection to powersave was changed to avoid error messages on autologin and slow machines. YaST handling was fixed. The size of PNG files was optimized. A German handbook version was added and the translations were updated. This version also contains several document updates and other little fixes.

                Release Notes: This release candidate fixes the brightness handling. To avoid display off, the lowest level of brightness is now the last usable level. In connection with powersave >= 0.12.7, brightness for the pmu and omnibook modules is now also supported. With this release, KPowersave hides laptop-specific functions and widgets on non-laptop machines (e.g. lid related issues). The root user can now always use all kinds of suspend/standby by default. This version also includes a fix for Slackware (unistd.h), translation and documentation updates/cleanups, and some minor fixes.

                  Release Notes: Lidclose handling was fixed to turn off the LCD backlight. CPU information about multiprocessor machines is displayed with and without throttling support. Battery information is displayed in the detailed dialog only if there is at least one battery bay. This version updates many translations and updates and adds screenshots in the localized handbook versions. A missing icon on non-SuSE distributions was added. Several autotool issues were fixed. KPowersave is now also available for Mandriva 2006.1.

                    Release Notes: This release candidate depends on powersave 0.12.1 or higher because of APM and battery related fixes in powersave. This version fixes problems in the information dialog and the applet tooltip with battery information on machines with APM support, and with processor information on machines without CPUfreq or throttling support. It also includes a fix for battery state info if no battery is available, translations, and handbook updates.

                      Release Notes: The sound settings for events were removed from the configure dialog and replaced with KNotify, and many new events were added. Now the user can e.g. play sounds, configure messages, or execute commands on events (configurable via the KNotify dialog from the applet menu or the configure dialog). This version contains fixes in the detailed dialog. It fixes support for CPUs that only support throttling, and all battery bars are the same size. It fixes autosuspend for FC 4, changes the path to powersaved in the dialogs to be more portable, and has several fixes and translation updates.
