eCo Software newsletter, week 38

Please pay attention to our new products for eComStation!

The fall is dedicated to creation of end-user applications based on modules and libraries prepared during 2006.

Updated ACPI drivers.

As you know, eComStation has modern ACPI subsystem now. ACPI offers new opportunities to developers and makes developers update their device drivers.
Usually users need two auxiliary drivers:
APM.ADD 1.5 (requires ACPI 2.12) - Power management for notebooks and desktops
* fixed throttling (for SMP only), fixed semaphore event, fixed power detect
* AcpiDaemon is improved
* Read tester.doc to test the driver; read troubleshooting.doc to solve troubles
* If you are developing a program to control UPS devices, you can integrate it into eComStation power management subsystem.

ACPI snooper (requires ACPI 2.12)
* The snooper is aimed to manage IRQs, setup ACPI virtual machine on start.
* Read tester.doc to test the driver; read troubleshooting.doc to solve troubles
* Don't remove all snoopers from snoop.lst (keep acpisnp.snp and ibmkbd.snp) else Enable full hardware detect is ignored.
