  different recipient) by mistake: eavesdroppers must now opt-in to this
  behaviour by putting "eavesdrop='true'" in the match rule, which will
  not have any practical effect on buses where eavesdropping is not allowed

Notes for distributors:

  This version of D-Bus no longer uses -fPIE by default. Distributions wishing
  to harden the dbus-daemon and dbus-launch-helper can re-enable this if their
  toolchain supports it reliably, via something like:

    ./configure CFLAGS=-fPIE LDFLAGS="-pie -Wl,-z,relro"

  or by using distribution-specific wrappers such as Debian's hardening-wrapper.

  • Switch back to using even micro versions for stable releases; 1.4.1
    should have been called 1.4.2, so skip that version number
  • Don't leave bad file descriptors being watched when spawning processes,
    which could result in a busy-loop (fd.o #32992, NB#200248; possibly
    also LP#656134, LP#680444, LP#713157)

 • Fix for CVE-2010-4352: sending messages with excessively-nested variants can
   crash the bus. The existing restriction to 64-levels of nesting previously
   only applied to the static type signature; now it also applies to dynamic
   nesting using variants. Thanks to Rémi Denis-Courmont for discoving this
   issue.
 • OS X portability fixes, including launchd support.
 • Windows autolaunch improvements.
 • Various bug fixes.
