Release Notes: This release included a new graphical configuration utility. It can be used to toggle the various modules on and off. USB controller power settings are no longer touched. Support for systemd was added. The hardcoded path to udevadm was replaced with "which udevadm". The '/usr/lib' path is now configurable. killall is no longer called with the -g argument. RPM spec file build errors were fixed.

Release Notes: This release kicks the power savings back in as soon as the stick is unplugged, releases lock descriptors in the start-stop-programs module, adds an option to disable the alarm level check (this is helpful if you have a broken battery reporting incorrect states), checks for an external helper application's presence (and, if not available, handles it), adds a PCIe ASPM module, and does not ship the board-specific/ folder in default installs.

    Release Notes: This release includes some important bugfixes and should make power savings much better on your machines. It also includes support for operating systems using systemd as the init. It is highly recommended to upgrade to this version.

    Release Notes: Handles devices with persistent device naming. This fixes the issues where if you didn't have a disk referenced by a block name, the commit= value wa completely skipped. An issue where hdparm skipped SSDs for power management has been fixed. Parallel execution for the modules has been added; in theory, this should speed up the execution. Support has been added for non-default customized settings. This release calculates design_capacity_warning on machines/architectures where it is not readily available.

      Release Notes: This release uses proper device references for iwconfig (Debian BTS: #639388), checks for a block device's existence, adds the suspend/resume helper tools pm-helper, pm-suspend, and pm-hibernate, kills the polling daemon when laptop-mode-tools is stopped from init, adds reliable and much better locking mechanics, makes polling the dameon lock safe, makes lmt-udev distribution neutral, and changes Intel HDA Audio's default power save timeout to two seconds.

      Release Notes: This release will really not call batt-poll-daemon from inside the flock instance. USB auto-suspend whitelist has been added. Doesn't call true, which forks a subshell. Uses exit instead of return. Checks for files instead of kernel version numbers.

        Release Notes: The PATH variable is now initialized internally, which helps when the caller does not have a proper environment. A new in-kernel polling mechanism was enabled for block devices. A check is done for the kernel's native suspend functionality. Execution of complex commands is supported. The nmi-watchdog module was added to handle NMI Watchdog related power savings. Error messages during early boot if /usr is on a different partition were fixed. Support was added for new Linux 3.x kernels. Locking problems when the battery polling daemon is enabled were fixed.

        Release Notes: This is a minor bug fix release. The calling application's arguments are passed to the main function. The governor policy from the configuration file is used.

        •  14 Feb 2011 21:52

          Release Notes: This release enables ENABLE_AUTO_MODULES by default. When a user installs the package, the first immediate expectation is to see some changes. The USB suspend interface has changed with kernels 2.6.35 and above.(Debian BTS: #589000). Support has been added for Linux.

          •  27 May 2010 01:25

          Release Notes: On Intel HD Audio, power saving changes are reverted when switching back to AC. The pm-utils hook is installed as 01laptop-mode to ensure proper execution in reverse ordering. A wireless-power module is provided for generic non-Intel wireless interfaces that support the iwconfig "power" option. The upgrade path for configurations that didn't have the LM/NOLM options in the Intel SATA Power Management module config has been fixed.
