-Note: The last release is now 4 months ago, so the NEWS are longer than
5
-      normal. For all changes read the Changelog.

7
-Major changes since the last version/release:
8
- - added new dialog to show logfiles if a suspend/resume fail and allow 
9
-   the user to save the log (need to get enabled per distro)
10
- - added support to handle brightness key events if the machine not already 
11
-   handle this in the hardware directly
12

13
-   if the user is inactive and dimm up if the user get active again
14
- - new dialog shown up 30 seconds before autosuspend call the suspend to 
15
-   warn the user and allow chancel the suspend 
16
- - added code to work with new PolicyKit/ConsoleKit/HAL combi to check if 
17
-   the user is privileged (for HAL >= 0.5.10 and related PolicyKit versions)
18
- - added code to check if the current desktop session is avtive and handle
19
-   if the session get inactive (via ConsoleKit)
20
- - added code to release/aquire org.freedesktop.Policy.Power if the session 
21
-   get inactive/active to allow powersaved or other active KPowersave 
22
-   instances to handle powermanagement
23
- - prepared KPowersave to work also with HAL >= 0.5.10 (handle renamed 
24
-   policy names in HAL)
25
- - use now kdebug functions instead of own macros, added --dbg-trace option 
26

33
-   timeToFakeKeyAfterLock < 0
34
- - added new config variable (callSetPowerSaveOnAC in [General] section) 
35
-   to disable call SetPowerSave() on HAL.
36
- - fix code to guess if a 6-hour-timeout occours while suspend/resume or 
37

38
- - removed Portuguese version of the help, since only one paragraph was 
39
-   translated
40
- - fixed configure script to detect if we should use HAL to get information

47
-   doubled code
48
-
49
-Bugfixes:
50
- - fixed problems with usage of enum cpufreq_type: don't assign integer 
51
-   values to a enum (lead to segfault since enum is a 8bit char object)
52
- - fixed wrong unit for power consumption (removed 'h' from unit)
53
- - only suspend on button events if we resumed to avoid double suspends
54
- - several fixes to make Q_SIGNALS from HAL/DBus idependent from the QT 
55
-   eventloop due to problems with the QT3 DBus bindings
56
- - several patches from Mandriva (lmontel@mandriva.com) to fix problems
57
-   with translations, format messages, speedup build and memory leaks
58
- - fixed detection if brightness is really supported by the system
59
- - call setPowerSave() always depending on AC state if a scheme get set. 
60
- - use float for internal calculation of battery values
61
- - When use DBUS_TYPE_BOOLEAN use as variable type dbus_bool_t to avoid 
62
-   possible trouble on big endian machines

-New: KPowersave 0.7.2 (development tree/unstable)
95
-=================================================
96
-
97
- This version is a major step to the next KPowersave stable version.
98
- At first: you don't need to change the KPowersave config file manually 
99
- any longer - this version provide now all options for powermanagement
100
- in KPowersave via the updated and extended configure dialog. 
101
-
102
- You can find all changes since the last release in this file or in the 
103
- Changelog. Please test KPowersave and feel free to report bugs to the 
104
- powersave-devel mailinglist or for SUSE products via the Novell bugzilla.
105
-
106
- Because of the changes in the GUI the most translations are not 
107
- up-to-date. Feel free to checkout the source, update your translations
108
- file and send it to us.
109
-
110
-Major changes since the last version:
111
- - extended configure dialog to provide this functionality:
112
-   * schemes settings:
113
-     - add new and delete existing (no default) schemes
114
-     - define a CPU Frequency policy for each scheme
115
-   * general settings:
116
-     - define battery warning levels and actions if a level reached
117
-       as e.g. Suspend to disk, Shutdown or change the brightness
118
-     - configure actions for button events (Power/Lid/Suspend/Sleep)
119
-     - define the default AC and battery schemes
120
- - show the power consumtion of the battery in the detailed info dialog
121
- - umount external media before suspend (need a patch of the KDE media 
122
-   manager) to avoid data loss and remount on resume
123
- - reset the CPU Freq settings on resume to avoid different settings for
124
-   the CPU governor on multicore machines
125
- - call now SetCPUFreqConsiderNice(), SetCPUFreqPerformance() on dynamic
126
-   CPU Freq policy (as poweruser setting only changeable via config file),
127
-   and also SetPowerSave() with true on battery and false otherwise.
128
- - support also conservative governor as DYNAMIC fallback
129
- - fixed brightness handling in the configure dialog if not activated
130
- - removed accelerator tags from i18n() strings. KDE handle this by itself.
131

-KPowersave 0.7.1 (development tree/unstable)
163
-=================================================
164
-
165
- I'm glad to announce the first new offical release from the KPowersave
166
- development version 0.7.1. This is the first version of KPowersave without
167
- dependency to the powersave daemon. From now KPowersave use directly the
168
- HAL daemon to get Hardware information and set e.g. brightness or trigger
169
- Suspend.
170
-
171
- Also if KPowersave depend no longer on powersave, I would recommend to use
172
- the new/current powersave version furthermore. You can use the powersave 
173
- daemon if there is no client as e.g. KPowersave to handle system power-
174
- management. If KPowersave (there is also a patch for g-p-m available) start 
175
- up the daemon stop automatically to handle powermanagement policy and 
176
- the KPowersave applet force (if allowed) the user specific policy.
177
-
178
- You can find all changes since the last stable release in this file or in
179
- the Changelog. Please test KPowersave and feel free to report bugs to 
180
- the powersave-devel mailinglist or for SUSE products via the Novell bugzilla. 
181
-
182
-Major changes since the last version:
183
-- Initial port from powersave to HAL/D-Bus/PolicyKit:
184
-  - replaced most features from the last stable version base on powersave
185
-    with new code. (Only missing atm eyecandy stuff as suspend progress dialog)
186
-  - replaced code to get hardware information from powersave with get info
187
-    from the HAL daemon
188
-  - changed resume from suspend/standby detection and handling of the event
189
-  - KPowersave claim now org.freedesktop.Policy.Power interface from D-Bus
190
-    to stop powersave from handle powermanagement policy and to prevent 
191
-    handle other clients to start powermanagement. 
192
-  - Extended existing schemes to be complete handled in KPowersave instead
193
-    of the powersave daemon. Added new (scheme) settings for:
194
-    * battery warning levels
195
-    * actions for battery warning levels and for lidclose events (as e.g. 
196
-      SHUTDOWN, SUSPEND2DISK, SUSPEND2RAM, CPUFREQ_POWERSAVE, CPUFREQ_DYNAMIC, 
197
-      or BRIGHTNESS)
198
-    * AC and Battery default schemes
199
-    * CPU Frequency Policies per scheme
200
-      --> NOTE: you can change this settings currently only via the config file 
201
-      		and not via the GUI configure dialog. This is the next step, we
202
- 	      	concentrated on get KPowersave running for this release.
203
-  - Fixed KDE screensaver and DPMS handling to reduce/avoid interfer with the
204
-    KDE user settings. There is a KDE patch available to check if KPowersave 
205
-    handle DPMS settings already and call the KPowersave config dialog.
