Summary: CPU frequency scaling daemon
Cpufreqd is meant to be a replacement of the speedstep applet you can find on some other OS, it monitors battery level, AC state and running programs and adjusts the frequency of the processor according to a set of rules specified in the config file (see cpufreqd.conf (5)). Cpufreqd 2 aims to become the next generation power management daemon. It provides a common interface to enable system monitoring and to take useful actions upon that. Currently it is still centered on the CPUFreq kernel interface, that means that running a CPUFreq capable kernel is still needed but also that behaviour could be delegated to a plugin. Note that the configuration file format is slightly incompatible with the previous cpufreqd 1 but it's really easy to migrate (a simple Perl script could do it, I'll try to prepare one soon).
