Further to this.

Developer has confirmed that this is about regression testing after 
porting the power manager to new technologies

[08:37:40] <ochosi> so basically this is a release that is a port to new 
technologies (gtk3, upower 0.99, gdbus)
[08:37:49] <ochosi> many things could potentially go wrong there
[08:38:01] <ochosi> not really too many new features, we tried to keep 
it a 1:1 port
