Dave Jones, the lead Fedora kernel maintainer and Linux hacker, has released the first bits of code to a new project he has been working. This new tool, acpitool, decodes ACPI tables into something that is almost like a C syntax. It's far from complete but the latest code is available from his personal website with the acpitool release announcement taking place on Dave Jones' blog.
