......@@ -6,6 +6,16 @@ Dependencies:
• dbus-daemon and dbus-daemon-launch-helper now require libdbus. They
were previously linked to a static version of libdbus.
• The tests no longer require dbus-glib in order to exercise the libdbus
shared library; they are always linked to libdbus now.
Build-time configuration:
• The new --enable-user-session option, off by default, can be enabled
by OS integrators intending to use systemd to provide a session bus
per user (in effect, treating all concurrent graphical and non-graphical
login sessions as one large session)
• All executables are now linked dynamically to libdbus.
......@@ -16,7 +26,26 @@ Enhancements:
All public symbols (visible in the header files) are currently
versioned as LIBDBUS_1_3; private symbols starting with _dbus or
dbus_internal have a version that changes with each release, and
must not be used by applications. (also part of fd.o #83115)
must not be used by applications. (also fd.o #83115)
• New listenable address mode "unix:runtime=yes" which listens on
a real filesystem (non-abstract) socket $XDG_RUNTIME_DIR/bus
(fd.o #61303; Colin Walters, Alexander Larsson, Simon McVittie)
• Add optional systemd units for a per-user bus listening on
$XDG_RUNTIME_DIR/bus (fd.o #61301; Simon McVittie, Colin Walters)
• On Unix platforms, both libdbus and "dbus-launch --autolaunch"
default to connecting to $XDG_RUNTIME_DIR/bus if it is a socket
(also fd.o #61301)
• New dbus-update-activation-environment tool uploads environment
variables to "dbus-daemon --session" and optionally "systemd --user",
primarily as a way to keep the per-user bus compatible with
distributions' existing X11 login scripts (also fd.o #61301)
• Add microsecond-resolution timestamps to the default output of
dbus-monitor and dbus-send (fd.o #88896; Ralf Habacker, Simon McVittie)
