      Release Notes: The Disk Submenu works again, the 'BrandName' field was removed, and the CPUName field improved. The CPU Name can now be any length, and the identity structure is now cleaned prior to use. The hdparm backend got an overdue cleanup, and no longer carries excess ioctl info. Allocation routines have been made simpler. Sonypi backend now unloads if no Sonypi hardware is present.

        Release Notes: The daemon handles HUP correctly, SMART code doesn't keep device fd open, and the install no longer overwrites existing config files. The CDROM backend respects min/max settings in /proc, and the CPU backend handles SMP boxes and steppings correctly. Tweaks that have changed value since the daemon has loaded reflect their current state in the UIs. New options were added, like a powerdown joystick port option for ymf744b sound card and a daemon --no-info option to skip `info' tweaks. Pentium III/Athlon XML and an informational MTRR backend were added, and many other fixes & cleanups.

          Release Notes: Fixed problems with textmode UI not building if libxml1 & 2 were installed, and with some backends not setting values on daemon start-up. Socket is now created in /var/run for LSB compliance. Daemon now shuts down cleanly on SIGTERM. A small SIGHUP cleanup was added. All backends now honour the 'immediate' flag correctly. SMART backend no longer saves number of errors in config file. Loading of plugins when daemon not running moved from UI to libpowertweak. LibXML is now linked against libpowertweak instead of the UI. Fix was added to address PIIX4-0 xml DTD non-compliance issue. NFS server profile was added. Improvements were made to tool-tip pop-up docs.

            Release Notes: Several segfaults/memory leaks have been fixed. The ownership model of the "stringvalue" memory has been changed. User interfaces now only run as root. Daemon socket creation/usage has been cleaned up. SMP boxes no longer show CPU0 values for all CPUs. sysctlconfig has been removed, as gpowertweak does everything it did. Now builds with libxml2 if present. There are Autoconf 2.50+ fixes, and lots of configure.in cleanups. It will now recognise AMD K6 MTRRs. New backends, preliminary hdparm support, IDE Health monitoring (S.M.A.R.T), and AMD K6-3+ PowerNOW support have been added. The elevator backend now works (This was in 0.99.0, but was disabled due to a bug). CDROM speed tuning and Sony-pi support (Vaio LCD backlight brightness) have been added. CPU XML now supports Pentium MMX additional power saving mode, and Pentium IV support (Fast strings, power saving) has been added. This release adds Extra PCI XML support for VIA 82C686, 82C698-0, 82C691 and Intel 82441-FX & 82434, PCI XML fixes for VIA 82C598, 82371AB PIIX4-1, and Intel 82437-VX, and preliminary TUX webserver support.

              Release Notes: First release of a totally rewritten codebase. Internals have been rewritten to use a modular plug-in approach, and this release comes with plug-ins to tune x86 CPU registers (Needs 2.2.18 or 2.4.0test kernel), PCI registers, disk elevator settings, and /proc/sys entries. The main program may now be run as a daemon. A usable curses interface was added to accompany the rewritten GTK interface. New profiles allow the user to tell Powertweak to auto-tune depending upon what role is selected. The PCI backend uses XML descriptions, and supports more chipsets than before.

                Release Notes: A fix for the bug where changing from a 2.4 kernel back to a 2.2 kernel would cause a complete lockup of the system.

                      Release Notes: Use of autoconf/automake, generation of /proc pages of the GTK GUI using XML, a new /proc pane for CDROM tweaking, the possibility to read config file from alternative locations, AMD 751 chipset support, CPU detection now detects Celerons and Cyrix III, removal of pci.ids (you now need to have a recent version of PCI Utilities installed), and many other minor bugfixes/improvements.
