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.

===========================
