We have added lots of s2ram whitelist entries since the previous release.

It is now recommended to use "long" command line options with s2ram
(eg. --vbe_save instead of -s).  The use of the "short" command line options is
strongly discouraged.

There is a new s2ram option, --pci_save (or -v), allowing you to save and
restore the VGA PCI state.  Use with care.

If pciutils 2.2.4 or newer is used, the zlib development package is necessary
to build s2ram and s2both.

We have switched to vbetool-1.0, so libx86 now has to be installed separately
and linked with s2ram and s2both.  We are still shipping vbetool itself, though.

The support for powerpc has been added to s2disk/resume and the architecture
dependent s2ram code has been moved to separate files (x86_32, x86_64 and
powerpc are supported).

The default name of the RSA key file is now "/etc/uswsusp.key".

s2disk users are now able to change the shutdown mode on the fly to "reboot" by
pressing 'r' while the image is being saved.

The LZO library is now used for compression by s2disk/s2both and resume instead
of LZF.

Configuration parameters of s2disk/s2both and resume can be specified in the
command line with the help of the --parameter (or -P) option.  The parameters
from the command line take precedence over the ones specified in configuration
files.

Enjoy!
