Version 2.20070211 is released

This new version includes among other things:

For ectype 12 (Satellite M40X, M70, M100, ...):
- improved bluetooth control
- cooling method control
- CPU throttling ( ACPI T-States)

Cooling method helps saving battery power by reducing fan activity.
Throttling helps reducing CPU temperature (for
example when something prevent a correct cooling air flow).

There is still an bug that may prevent user from re-enabling a previously disabled wifi adapter.

For ectype 13 (Tecra S1, Satellite M40, M45, ...):
- For Tecra S1: Full hotkeys support.
- For M40 & M45: The hotkeys still not working as expected, Matteo Zandi is working on a workaround.

Tecra S1 support was made possible thanks to Toshiba provided documentations.
Thank you Toshiba.
Special thanks to Holger Nelson for fixing and improving my initial implementation.

For ectype 14 (Satellite A100, A105, M115, ...):
- bluetooth control
- No backlight, no hotkeys...

More decent support requires documentation from Toshiba.
I have received nearly 70 emails from peoples owing one of these and being quite disappointed by the poor linux support of their laptop. A documentation release will make lots of people happy.
