D-Bus 1.4.12 (UNRELEASED)
==
Security (local denial of service):
• Byte-swap foreign-endian messages correctly, preventing a long-standing
local DoS if foreign-endian messages are relayed through the dbus-daemon
(backporters: this is git commit c3223ba6c401ba81df1305851312a47c485e6cd7)
(fd.o #38120, Debian #629938, no CVE number yet; Simon McVittie)
New things:
• The constant to use for an infinite timeout now has a name,
DBUS_TIMEOUT_INFINITE. It is numerically equivalent to 0x7fffffff (INT32_MAX)
which can be used for source compatibility with older versions of libdbus.
• If GLib and DBus-GLib are already installed, more tests will be built,
providing better coverage. They can be installed via
./configure --enable-installed-tests
for system integration testing, if required. (fd.o #34570, Simon McVittie)
Changes:
• Consistently use atomic operations for the DBusConnection's refcount
(fd.o #38005, Simon McVittie)
• Don't use -Wl,--gc-sections by default: in practice the size decrease is
small (300KiB on x86-64) and it frequently doesn't work in unusual
toolchains. To optimize for minimum installed size, you should benchmark
