NEWS for 1.9

parent 94610d7d
D-Bus 1.9.10 (UNRELEASED)
• The new Monitoring interface in the dbus-daemon lets dbus-monitor and
similar tools receive messages without altering the security properties
of the system bus, by calling the new BecomeMonitor method on a
private connection. This bypasses the normal <allow> and <deny> rules
entirely, so to preserve normal message-privacy assumptions, only root
is allowed to do this on the system bus. Restricted environments,
such as Linux with LSMs, should lock down access to the Monitoring
interface. (fd.o #46787, Simon McVittie)
• dbus-monitor uses BecomeMonitor to capture more traffic, if the
dbus-daemon supports it and access permissions allow it.
It still supports the previous approach ("eavesdropping" match rules)
for compatibility with older bus daemons. (fd.o #46787, Simon)
• dbus-monitor can now log the message stream as binary data for later
analysis, with either no extra framing beyond the normal D-Bus headers,
or libpcap-compatible framing treating each D-Bus message
as a captured packet. (fd.o #46787, Simon)
• Fix some CMake build regressions (fd.o #88964, Ralf Habacker)
• On Unix, forcibly terminate regression tests after 60 seconds to
prevent them from blocking continuous integration frameworks
(fd.o #46787, Simon)
