battery-plugin vs power-manager

Hi everyone,
I use XFCE for some time now. On my laptop I have installed the xfce4-power-manager. I thought it has all that is needed, but recently I noticed that there is some development made on xfce4-battery-plugin and now I'm wondering why? Does the battery plugin provide some extra features? My distro doesn't provide the battery plugin, so instead of compiling and testing by myself, I decided to ask here first. Hopefully someone will answer. :-)

Re: battery-plugin vs power-manager

Hello and welcome.

The battery plugin is simpler, it just reports on the state of the battery. The power-manager has more functionality around managing power settings on the device.
