Released yesterday was a new version of UPower, the FreeDesktop.org software known long ago as DeviceKit-Power and used as an abstraction layer for enumerating power devices on Linux and other platforms. The new UPower 1.90.1 release is the first update to this software in just shy of one year.

The most notable change with UPower 1.90.1 is now detecting headsets with kernel battery information such as various Logitech and SteelSeries audio headsets. These headsets with kernel battery information will now automatically disappear when the headset is turned off, permitting the kernel driver properly communicates the wireless status.
