a 1.14.0 stable release at an unspecified point in the future.
Behaviour changes:
DBusServer (and hence the dbus-daemon) no longer accepts usernames
(login names) for the recommended EXTERNAL authentication mechanism,
only numeric user IDs or the empty string. This is not believed to
affect real D-Bus clients in practice, because most D-Bus clients
send numeric user IDs: the only known client implementation that
sends usernames is dbus-java, and that only when run on a system
where the method is
not available. (fd.o #104588, Simon McVittie)

• Do not look up client-supplied strings in the system user database
(NSS or equivalent) when using the recommended EXTERNAL auth mechanism.
This could previously lead to a deadlock or timeout in the presence of
slow or network-dependent NSS modules. (fd.o #104588, Simon McVittie)
• Report the correct error if OOM is reached while trying to listen
on a TCP socket (fd.o #89104, Simon McVittie)
