GNOME's New Power-Profiles-Daemon Sees "v0.1" Release

As work that should come together during the GNOME 3.40 cycle, the power-profiles-daemon project has just tagged its "v0.1" inaugural release as part of the work on better power management handling / power profiles easily configurable from the GNOME desktop.

A few days ago I reported on GNOME Power-Profiles-Daemon for better system/laptop power controls by allowing power-saving presets of "balanced", "power-saver", and "performance" from the GNOME Control Center. Based upon the settings it would adjust Linux tunables around USB fast-charging and other power management tweaks, including the possibility of altering graphics card power management settings and the likes.

The inaugural 0.1 release of power-profiles-daemon has been announced. The GNOME Control Center integration is slated to land during the GNOME 3.40 cycle and packages for Fedora are on the way.
