Name        : acpica-tools
Product     : Fedora 23
Version     : 20160318
Release     : 1.fc23

Summary     : ACPICA tools for the development and debug of ACPI tables
Description :
The ACPI Component Architecture (ACPICA) project provides an OS-independent
reference implementation of the Advanced Configuration and Power Interface
Specification (ACPI).  ACPICA code contains those portions of ACPI meant to
be directly integrated into the host OS as a kernel-resident subsystem, and
a small set of tools to assist in developing and debugging ACPI tables.

This package contains only the user-space tools needed for ACPI table
development, not the kernel implementation of ACPI.  The following commands
are installed:
   -- iasl: compiles ASL (ACPI Source Language) into AML (ACPI Machine
      Language), suitable for inclusion as a DSDT in system firmware.
      It also can disassemble AML, for debugging purposes.
   -- acpibin: performs basic operations on binary AML files (e.g.,
      comparison, data extraction)
   -- acpidump: write out the current contents of ACPI tables
   -- acpiexec: simulate AML execution in order to debug method definitions
   -- acpihelp: display help messages describing ASL keywords and op-codes
   -- acpinames: display complete ACPI name space from input AML
   -- acpisrc: manipulate the ACPICA source tree and format source files
      for specific environments
   -- acpixtract: extract binary ACPI tables from acpidump output (see
      also the pmtools package)

This version of the tools is being released under GPLv2 license.

Update Information:

Regular bug fixes in both the kernel-resident code and in the user space tools.
Improved support for ACPI 6.1:  (Headers/Disassembler/TableCompiler): NFIT: For
ACPI 6.1, updated to add some additional new fields and  constants. FADT:
Updated a warning message and set compliance to ACPI 6.1 (Version  6). DMAR:
Added new constants per the 10/2014 DMAR spec. IORT: Added new subtable per the
10/2015 IORT spec. HEST: For ACPI 6.1, added new constants and new subtable.
DBG2: Added new constants per the 12/2015 DBG2 spec. FPDT: Fixed several
incorrect fields, add the FPDT boot record structure.  ACPICA BZ 1249.
ERST/EINJ: Updated disassembler with new "Execute Timings" actions.   ----
Added in support for the ACPI 6.1 specification, in these areas: (1) New
predefined names; (2) New _HID values; (3) A new subtable for HEST; (4) A few
other header changes for new values.
