Files that may be in your backup that have been updated.


Remember, the best way to test an RC is to first try booting with the base and norestore options.

Also note, we are back to our normal size.  :)

We also improved the mute and volume control interaction in the docked app and dMix.
What is the change to .torsmorc with regard to the ACPI battery status?
torsmo generally worked well with APM but not ACPI.  The battery info is located at a different area for ACPI.


For typical systems APM or ACPI both should display battery state.
