It is NOT discontinued. This information is wrong. You can see on archive.org that 4.0 was released in 2017.

Your doctor recommends this and a good night's sleep.

It can change - via command line! - whether (or not) one of those loud disks will automatically spin down and become perfectly silent, whenever it's been idle and after how many seconds of idle time it will do so. It can also simply spin it down right now, via command line. However figuring out the command line is painful, because the UI is like a jump and run adventure.
