I'm pleased to announce an alpha version of the 0.8 for testing, so
please if you have time give it a try to help me debugging it, download .
This version is a complete re-write of the power manager, here is a list
*: Dropping libhal dependency and doing simple proxy calls instead, this
means that you don't need the hal library to compile
xfpm, you just need hald running to run xfpm.
*: The Hal code inside xfpm is written in the same way as
libdevkit-power-gobject such a way migrating to
devkit-power will be very easy and not time consuming.
*: Settings dialog simplified and re-written using glade and libxfcegui4
*: Provide standard freedesktop compliant power management and inhibit
*: Provide battery informations dialog in the context menu.
*: Xfpm detects now if the session is idle and reduces the laptop
brightness if enabled.
*: Xfpm will disable automatically dpms and brightness control if it
detects that user is watching a movie.
*: New brightness panel plugin to control laptop brightness.
*: New inhibit panel plugin to monitor/change the inhibit status of the
power manager (should work with gpm as well).
*: XF86 keys (Sleep, Suspend, Brightness, ... ) now are detected and
used in xfpm instead of hal legacy buttons
( laptop lid still uses HAL ).
*: Xfpm now correctly handle HAL disconnection (shouldn't happen).
