i3status is a small program (about 1500 SLOC) for generating a status bar for
i3bar, dzen2, xmobar or similar programs. It is designed to be very efficient
by issuing a very small number of system calls, as one generally wants to
update such a status line every second. This ensures that even under high load,
your status bar is updated correctly. Also, it saves a bit of energy by not
hogging your CPU as much as spawning the corresponding amount of shell commands

2017-04-12 - arun@gmx.de
- update to version 2.11:
* re-add forgotten wakeup call from SIGUSR1 handler
* disk_info: bugfix: check format_not_mounted is not NULL before
using it
* revert back to using nanosleep
* man: give more descriptive symbols to battery format
* battery: removes the 'remaining' time when the battery is full
* add separator and separator_block_width as universal module
* man: fix link to contrib
* cpu_temperature: add glob check
* battery: add status_unk
* reconnect to PluseAudio when connection is lost
* wireless: add ifdef to compile on macOS
* order default configuration paths the same as in i3
* add version files for release tarball
* man: make tztime example config match the context
* cpu_usage: add color thresholds
* battery: support multiple batteries
* disk: use empty string for not mounted disks
* default config: remove DHCP, VPN
* wireless: fix FTBFS on hurd and kFreeBSD
* parse uevent file to detect network device type
* allow pulse device to be specified by name
* battery: find batteries using glob
* tztime: support locales
* wireless: use blank padding for quality
* add unit tests
* fix compilation with -fno-common
2016-03-08 - arun@gmx.de
- specfile:
* add libnl3-devel, libpulse-devel
- update to version 2.10:
* man: fix typo in battery example
* Pass the "instance" JSON property key for tztime blocks
* Fix build (and build warnings) on FreeBSD
* Fix build on OpenBSD
* path_exists, run_watch: add format_down
* volume: add PulseAudio support. This significantly reduces battery
consumption on systems that use PulseAudio, which is the default
on any modern Linux desktop.
* wireless/OpenBSD: use the maximum rssi, not the scaled percentage
for the signal level.
* make: Add support for differing PREFIX and MANPREFIX.
* battery: make output HH:MM across all platforms.
* battery: clamp the percentage at 100% when last_full_capacity is
* Use format_not_mounted if the directory for a disk_info block does
not exist.
* disk_info/OS X: Fix build.
* volume/OpenBSD: use SndIO.
* eth, wireless: Use "color_degraded" when interface has no IP.
* eth, wireless/FreeBSD: Fix for recent FreeBSD versions.
* wireless/Linux: switch from libiw to libnl. This allows you to run
i3status on kernels which don?t have the wext compatibility module
* battery/FreeBSD: properly detect charging status
* eth: first_eth_interface: ignore MAC addresses, look for IPv4/IPv6
* Implement support for Pango markup.
* format detection: recognise swaybar
2015-06-08 - arun@gmx.de
- update to version 2.9:
* meta: i3status is now on GitHub and uses clang-format
* allow customization of the module separator
* add ?align? and ?min_width? options for each module
* fix CFLAGS and LDFLAGS for DragonFly and FreeBSD
* add contrib/net-speed, a more light-weight reimplementation of
* contrib/measure-net-speed.bash
* battery: add hide_seconds option
* battery: fix for systems without POWER_SUPPLY_VOLTAGE_NOW
* battery: for %percentage, drop leading 0 for values < 10
* battery: add NetBSD support
* battery: use absolute values for (dis)charging rates
* battery: introduce status_{chr,bat,full}
* cpu_temperature: fix displaying multiple sensors
* cpu_temperature: fix NetBSD support
* cpu_temperature: fix DragonFly support
* disk: introduce threshold_type and low_threshold
* disk: add format_not_mounted for unmounted paths
* ethernet, wireless: support special interface name _first_
* run_watch: check all matching pid files until first valid one
* volume: fix wrong color tags with xmobar
* wireless: support %frequency (2.4 vs. 5 GHz)
2015-02-01 - arun@gmx.de
- replaced tar-ball with tar-ball from Source location
(they were different for some location, which was the
reason the package didn't get updated in Factory)
- Removed i3status-2.7-makefile.patch
