    Release Notes: This release has support for the new IBaM algorithm of PBButtons, and is able to show accurate time estimations. The feature is configurable in the modules config dialog. The second highlight of this release is the now available Debian package for Sarge. It is not part of the main distribution yet, but in the meantime you can download it from the home page. Last but not least, the dusty source tree has been cleaned up.

      Release Notes: The IPC interface changed slightly in pbbuttonsd 0.6.9. This release has been changed to compile again with the old and new interfaces.

        Release Notes: This release now estimates the time remaining for inactive batteries. This leads to a good overall time, especially if multiple batteries are plugged in. Gkrellm-PMU adjusts its display correctly if no batteries are available at all (guaranteed only if pbbuttonsd 0.6.5 or later is installed). The chart would now be hidden if no batteries were displayed. Last but not least, some worse bugs were fixed.

          Release Notes: The plugin was updated for Gkrellm 2.2, which uses Pango for text handling. The availableness of the battery values was increased.

            Release Notes: This release is compatible with GKrellM 2 and adds major rewrites and cleanup.
