Hot on the heels of 1.1.2, has been released.

      * Fix a bug noticed by Michael Biebl that prevents pm-utils from
        saving commandline parameters correctly. 
      * Return $NA instead of when we are running on a system that
        98-smart-kernel-video does not recognize. 
      * Close a security hole noticed by Michael Biebl that might allow
        arbitrary file removal. We now handle commandline parameters
        using a single file instead of lots of smaller ones.
