We are pleased to announce the release of PowerTOP v2.12.

About PowerTOP:

PowerTOP is a Linux tool to diagnose issues with power consumption and power management. In addition to being a diagnostic tool, PowerTOP also has an interactive mode you can use to experiment with various power management settings, for cases where the Linux distribution has not enabled those settings.

PowerTOP reports which components in the system are most likely to able for higher-than-needed power consumption, ranging from software applications to active components in the system. Detailed screens are available for CPU C and P states, device activity, and software activity. For many years, PowerTOP has been used heavily by Intel, Linux distributors, and various parts of the open source community.

About PowerTOP v2.12 release:

This is a minor release with a few updates to README file,  use of DIPM (Device Interface Power Management) for SATA link PM and updates to the build scripts. We have also enabled support for Comet Lake mobile and desktop, Skylake server and atom based Tremont (Jasper Lake). Thanks to the contributors from the open source community.

Thank you to everyone who contributed to this release! Stay safe and stay healthy!.
