B A T T E R Y    M O N I T O R  0.3


Battery monitor is a small utility that displays the status of your laptop battery (charge/discharge and status). Currently, it works only on Linux with ACPI with 2.6 kernels since it reads files in /proc and relies on that format. It runs also on FreeBSD thanks to patches by Chris Vetter.

It is a 0.3 release and thus has some limitations but it is already working and I found no problems running it on my computer and thus I wanted to share it with you all.

What is new in 0.3 ?
- bug fixes, especially a nasty memory leak
- percentage display
- better handling of strange ACPI cases (like charge greater than 100%)
- an Icon
- cleaner system to support different platforms


Battery Monitor is part of GAP, the GNUSTEP Application Project (http://www.nongnu.org/gap/). Specifically its pages are:
