Intel OSTC logo Intel's Open Source Technology Center has announced the release of PowerTOP 2.1, which includes support for Intel GPUs and cores without P-states. The project is now using the Transifex localisation platform and includes new translations of the UI into nine languages; the developers plan to include even more localisations for the 2.2 release.

PowerTOP has also gained a new manual page, and several minor improvements and bug fixes. An option to suppress output to the terminal will make it easier for users to use the tool in scripts and automated test setups. The developers have also been working towards better ARM support with the addition of more ARM assets.

The PowerTOP tool helps Linux users find the software and devices on their system that waste the most amount of power and provides suggestions on how to improve power usage. For more information on how to use the tool, see this feature on version 2.0 of PowerTOP from The H.

PowerTOP 2.1 can be downloaded from the project's web site and its source code is available from GitHub under the GPLv2.
