D-Bus 1.5.10 (UNRELEASED)
• D-Bus Specification 0.19:
· Formally define unique connection names and well-known bus names,
and document best practices for interface, bus, member and error names,
and object paths (fd.o #37095, Simon McVittie)
· Document the search path for session and system services on Unix, and
where they should be installed by build systems (fd.o #21620, fd.o #35306;

• Allow all configured auth mechanisms, not just one (fd.o #45106,
Pavel Strashkin)

• Add dbus-daemon --nopidfile option, overriding the configuration, for
setups where the default configuration must include <pidfile/> to avoid
breaking traditional init, but the pid file is in fact unnecessary; use
it under systemd to improve startup time a bit (fd.o #45520,
Lennart Poettering)
• Unix-specific:
· Use epoll(7) for a more efficient main loop in Linux; equivalent patches
welcomed for other OSs' equivalents like kqueue, /dev/poll, or Solaris

· Don't close invalid fd -1 if getaddrinfo fails (fd.o #37258, eXeC001er)
  · Don't touch ~/.dbus and ~/.dbus-keyrings when running 'make installcheck'
(fd.o #41218, Simon McVittie)
· Stop pretending we respect XDG_DATA_DIRS for system services: the launch
helper doesn't obey environment variables to avoid privilege escalation
attacks, so make the system bus follow the same rules
(fd.o #21620, Simon McVittie)
• Windows-specific:
· Find the dbus-daemon executable next to the shared library (fd.o #41558;
