D-Bus 1.5.14 (UNRELEASED)
D-Bus 1.6.0 (2012-06-05)
The “soul of this machine has improved” release.
This version starts a new stable branch of D-Bus: only bug fixes will
be accepted into 1.6.x. Other changes will now go to the 1.7.x branch.
Summary of changes since 1.4.x:
• New requirements
· compiler support for 64-bit integers (int64_t or equivalent)
• D-Bus Specification v0.19
• New dbus-daemon features
· <allow own_prefix="com.example.Service"/> rules allow the service to
own names like com.example.Service.Instance3
· optional systemd integration when checking at_console policies
· --nopidfile option, mainly for use by systemd
· path_namespace and arg0namespace may appear in match rules
· eavesdropping is disabled unless the match rule contains eavesdrop=true
• New public API
· functions to validate various string types (dbus_validate_path() etc.)
· dbus_type_is_valid()
· DBusBasicValue, a union of every basic type
• Bug fixes
· removed an unsafe reimplementation of recursive mutexes
· dbus-daemon no longer busy-loops if it has far too many file descriptors
· dbus-daemon.exe --print-address works on Windows
· all the other bug fixes from 1.4.20
• Other major implementation changes
· on Linux, dbus-daemon uses epoll if supported, for better scalability
· dbus_threads_init() ignores its argument and behaves like
dbus_threads_init_default() instead
· removed the per-connection link cache, improving dbus-daemon performance
• Developer features
· optional Valgrind instrumentation (--with-valgrind)
· optional Stats interface on the dbus-daemon (--enable-stats)
· optionally abort whenever malloc() fails (--enable-embedded-tests
