This means:

* That LCD brightness changing now works with PPC hardware (only for
hardware that supports changing the backlight brightness from software).
You can use gnome-power-manager to set policy when on AC and battery.

* HAL should now detect the power button on PPC (works for my iBook
clamshell), so that when pressed, the logout, shutdown, restart dialogue
is displayed. You'll need a very up to date g-p-m for this to work.

* HAL will can set a LowPowerMode when on battery power (just like
LaptopMode), that should save even more battery power when on battery.
