fdpowermon is a simple perl script that installs an icon in a system
tray compatible with the freedesktop.org specification.
Every three seconds, fdpowermon calls acpi to find out what the current
battery level is. It will set the output of the acpi command as a
tooltip text, and will update the used icon as appropriate.
In addition, fdpowermon can optionally call perl subroutines when the
power reaches a given level. No such subroutines are provided or
enabled by default, however.

fdpowermon (1.18) unstable; urgency=medium
* Pass the version number of the Notify library as a string rather
than as a number, so that it is not locale-sensitive anymore.
* Limit the number of digits past the comma to 2 in more places.
* Update Standards-Version to 3.9.8 (no applicable changes)
* theme.cfg, debian/fdpowermon-icons.install: update for new location of icon
directory in oxygen-icon-theme package
2016-06-27 - Wouter Verhelst <wouter@debian.org>
fdpowermon (1.17) unstable; urgency=medium
* Improve accuracy of combined battery level calculation by
incorporating battery capacity and not just percentage
* Hide the StatusIcon when no icon is selected, rather than leaving a
blank space.
* Improve parsing of theme files by skipping empty lines.
2015-03-18 - Wouter Verhelst <wouter@debian.org>
fdpowermon (1.16) unstable; urgency=medium
* Follow the XDG spec a bit better: use XDG_CONFIG_HOME if specified
(still fall back to $HOME/.config if not, though).
* Fix exception check in fdpowermon::theme::warning, so that we don't
fall back to using dialogs after the first warning. Closes: #786370.
2015-03-16 - Wouter Verhelst <wouter@debian.org>
fdpowermon (1.15) unstable; urgency=medium
* Fix off-by-one in level parsing code
* Fix language: "Compound" is an awkward replacement for combined
battery percentage. Use "Combined" instead.
* Switch to gtk+3
2015-03-12 - Wouter Verhelst <wouter@debian.org>
fdpowermon (1.14) unstable; urgency=medium
* Move example config file to /usr/share/doc/fdpowermon, where it belongs
(from /usr/share/fdpowermon)
* Support multiple batteries properly.
* debian/control: Fix Vcs-Git: URL format
* Update Standards-Version to 3.9.6 (nothing relevant)
2014-04-28 - Wouter Verhelst <wouter@debian.org>
fdpowermon (1.13) unstable; urgency=medium
* make use_notify an "our" variable, rather than a "my" one, so that
it can actually be changed from theme files
* move @main::warnings to @fdpowermon::theme::warnings, so the point
at which a warning is issued can be changed as well
* Minor documentation updates
2014-02-20 - Wouter Verhelst <wouter@debian.org>
fdpowermon (1.12) unstable; urgency=medium
* Update description of fdpowermon package: recent versions *do* have
more features than just showing an icon, even if they're not enabled
by default.
* Add example theme.pl script to explain its usage. Closes: #738983.
* If use libnotify fails because no DBus service is running for the
libnotify stuff to show a message, fall back to using dialog boxes,
too. Closes bug report not received through BTS.
2013-12-31 - Wouter Verhelst <wouter@debian.org>
fdpowermon (1.11) unstable; urgency=medium
* Update Standards-Version to 3.9.5 (no relevant changes)
* Fix use of eval. Using eval to check for the presence of modules
requires a string, not a code block. Closes: #738985.
2013-07-05 - Wouter Verhelst <wouter@debian.org>
fdpowermon (1.10) unstable; urgency=low
* Switch to 3.0 (native) format.
* Call fdpowermon::theme::warning instead of main::warning, which no
longer exists since 1.9. Oops. Patch by David Purton; Closes:
2013-04-18 - Wouter Verhelst <wouter@grep.be>
fdpowermon (1.9) unstable; urgency=low
* Add example for perl API.
* Move libgtk2-notify-perl to recommends
* Introduce $fdpowermon::theme::use_notify which allows one to disable
the use of notifications and fall back to dialog boxes (initialized
based on whether Gtk2::Notify is installed).
* The above two should allow fdpowermon >= 1.6 to run on distributions
where Gtk2::Notify isn't packaged, such as Arch Linux, while also
allowing allowing other users the added benefit of having the choice
of maybe not using libnotify.
* Fix an error in the manpage
