Name        : apcupsd
Product     : Fedora 12
Version     : 3.14.8
Release     : 1.fc12
URL         : http://www.apcupsd.com
Summary     : APC UPS Power Control Daemon for Linux
Description :
Apcupsd can be used for controlling most APC UPSes. During a
power failure, apcupsd will inform the users about the power
failure and that a shutdown may occur.  If power is not restored,
a system shutdown will follow when the battery is exausted, a
timeout (seconds) expires, or the battery runtime expires based
on internal APC calculations determined by power consumption
rates.  If the power is restored before one of the above shutdown
conditions is met, apcupsd will inform users about this fact.
Some features depend on what UPS model you have (simple or smart).

Update Information:

* apctest now supports battery calibration and self-test interval control on USB
models    * New SNMP driver that does not require libsnmp.so, thus eliminating
issues with not finding the library during shutdown when /usr has  been
unmounted. The new driver is the default for 'UPSTYPE snmp'. The old driver is
still available as "UPSTYPE netsnmp" if needed.    * Add missing NOMINV,
NOMOUTV, and NOMPOWER to net clients    * Fix missing WALL in apccontrol    *
Change all time/date strings to simplified ISO format: "YYYY-MM-DD HH:MM:SS
+/-UTC"    * Fix battery voltage readout on "Back-UPS 500 FW: 6.3.I USB FW: c1"
* Update apctest to use 'Q' to exit any menu instead of a number that is always

* Mon Jan 18 2010 Michal Hlavinka <mhlavink at redhat.com> - 3.14.8-1

* Fri Sep 18 2009 Michal Hlavinka <mhlavink at redhat.com> - 3.14.7-3
