cpufreqd-2.3.2 released

The 2.3 release of cpufreqd switches to sysfs to read the ACPI data, it fixes some bugs from precious versions and brings some renewed enthusiasm to at trying to work on cpufreqd some more.
P.S.: yes, also 2.3.0 and 2.3.1 were released before this one.

cpufreqd-2.2.0 released

* SMP/SMT awareness in profiles/rules settings and cpu_plugin
* added TAU plugin for G3 processors temperature monitoring
* add "-l" switch to cpufreqd-get to list current profile for each CPU. NOTE: the current profile is not reported with simply `cpufreqd-get`
* deal with unfair bioses which change frequency (and locks it for some time) behind our back
* restore reading /proc/<pid>/cmdline instead of /p/<p>/exe and try to normalize the process name
* do not set a Rule as "current" if it fails to apply

cpufreqd-2.0.0-pre1 released


* NOTE *

This is a pre release! Things may not work as you expect, use this software at
your own risk.
Cpufreqd2 now provides all the features of cpufreqd1 plus a lot more! The
configuration file format is still compatible but will emit a lot of warnings
if you still use the old format. Take a look at the cpufreqd.conf manpage to see
what changed.... read more

cpufreqd-2.0.0-beta4 released

Please see distributed the README file and the manpages for many important changes (the most important being the incompatibility with the old cpufreqd configuration file -you mostly need to close section tags, eg: [General][/General], and see new available configuration options)!

Please test it, I'd really appreciate some feedback to be able to release a stable version as soon as possible.

NOTE: pmu is not supported (yet?) and apm is very experimental (I don't have apm HW around, just ported the old plugin).

cpufreqd-1.2.3 released

This is just a bugfix release, please update if you can. See changelog for details.

Posted by Mattia Dongili 2005-05-14


just fixed a bug that appeared in 1.2.1, sorry...

/me thinks that it's dangerous to have minor releases when major changes are floating around...

Posted by Mattia Dongili 2004-10-25


This release only fixes support for ACPI desktop users.
Debian packages available in official repositories asap.

cpufreqd 1.2.0 released

This release focuses on some add-ons such as support for multiple processors, translation between percentage and absolute values for 2.6 kernels and some major bug-fixes: ACPI support is extended to desktop PCs where neither a battery nor an ac_adapter is available (I'm running it successfully at home to keep my P4 a little cooler).
