News nybble: Shout from the rooftops: pi-topUtils 1.04 now available

Or whisper. It’s your choice, and under your control!

Jon Abbott, taking a break from making old games work via ADFFS as part of the Archimedes Software Preservation Project, has released a new version of pi-topUtils. The software provides things like a battery level indicator, screen dimming (which helps preserve battery life), automatic shutdown, and so on.

The new version – 1.04, which is for the original pi-top only, not the pi-top2 – adds support for (and control of) the speaker in the Raspberry Pi-based laptop, initialising them and allowing the volume to be adjusted via the mute and volume up/down keys on the pi-top keyboard.
