Also, with this release, TLP is no longer disabled when laptop-mode-tools is detected and instead, a warning is displayed about possible conflicts.
- set systemd service type to simple, allows tlp service to start asynchronously in the background;
- remove DISABLE_TPACPIBAT from configuration;
- remove DEVICES_TO_ENABLE_ON_RADIOSW from configuration because it’s deprecated: works with Ubuntu 12.04/Kernel 3.2 only;
- enable RUNTIME_PM_ALL by default (controls runtime power management for PCI(e) bus devices);
- do not touch kernel settings if param is empty or commented: DISK_IDLE_SECS_ON, MAX_LOST_WORK_SECS_ON, SCHED_POWERSAVE_ON, NMI_WATCHDOG, SATA_LINKPWR_ON, PCIE_ASPM_ON, RADEON_DPM_STATE_ON, RADEON_POWER_PROFILE_ON, WIFI_PWR_ON, SOUND_POWER_SAVE_ON, RUNTIME_PM_ON;
- consider changed sysfs paths for i915 enable_rc6/fbc as of kernel 3.15;
- consider changed sysfs paths for hwmon coretemp/sensors as of kernel 3.15/3.16;
- report speed of all fans, not just the first one;
- show warning for kernel sata errors (possibly) caused by SATA_LINKPWR_ON_BAT/AC=min/medium power;
- retrieve trace output from systemd journal if present;
