This release is available at https://acpica.org/downloads
1) ACPICA kernel-resident subsystem:
Cleaned up (delete) the context mutex during local address handler object deletion.
Fixed a memory leak caused by the _CID repair function.
Added support for PlatformRtMechanism OperationRegion handler. Adds a new utility function, AcpiUtConvertUuidToString. Writing a buffer to a PlatformRtMechanism fieldunit invokes a bidirectional transaction. The input buffer contains 26 bytes containing 9 bytes of status, a command byte and a 16-byte UUID. This change will simply pass this incoming buffer to a handler registered by the OS.

Added full support for the PRMT ACPI table (Platform Runtime Mechanism Table). Includes support in the iASL compiler, the disassembler, and the template generator.
