are sleep modes part of the core in the meantime ?

in the past you have to deal heavily with registers to enable the deep sleep mode on the SAMD21 while still wanting to "listen" to pin interrupts, see for example here --> https://github.com/arduino/ArduinoCore-samd/issues/142 or here --> http://forum.arduino.cc/index.php?topic=410699.msg2828987#msg2828987

are there any new core functions regarding the sleep modes of the SAMD21 or is there some kind of "low-power library" available for that ?
