• dbus now requires at least a basic level of support for C99 variadic
macros, as implemented in gcc >= 3, all versions of Clang, and
MSVC >= 2005. In practice this requirement has existed since version
1.9.2, but it is now official.
• Rewrite to reflect the current setup

• Reference the Code of Conduct (Simon McVittie)
• Build an implementation of dbus-run-session for Windows
(dbus#135, dbus!22; Ralf Habacker)
• On Linux with SELinux, use avc_open() and monitor the AVC netlink fd
in the main event loop, instead of using the deprecated avc_init()
and a thread (dbus#134, dbus!31; Laurent Bigonville)
• On Linux with SELinux, use the SELINUX_CB_POLICYRELOAD callback
to detect policy reloads, instead of monitoring the access vector
(dbus#134, dbus!31; Laurent Bigonville)
• Avoid double slashes in pkg-config paths (dbus!30, Ralf Habacker)
• Improve test coverage and clean up dead code
(fd.o #107739, Simon McVittie)

· backslash escapes are not interpreted in section/group names

• Always use select()-based poll() emulation on Darwin-based OSs
(macOS, etc.) and on Interix, similar to what libcurl does
(dbus#232, dbus!19; Simon McVittie)
• Fix some small O(1) memory leaks (fd.o #107320, Simon McVittie)
• Extend a test timeout to avoid spurious failures in CI
(dbus!26, Simon McVittie)
• Fix build warnings with recent gcc (dbus#208, dbus#225; David King)
• Fix build warnings without libX11 (dbus#228, Simon McVittie)
• Fix whitespace and error behaviour for _dbus_command_from_pid()
(dbus#222, dbus!28; Simon McVittie)
• When built with CMake, install dbus-daemon-launch-helper to
${CMAKE_INSTALL_LIBEXECDIR}, analogous to ${libexecdir} in
Autotools (dbus!9, Simon McVittie)
• When built with CMake and disabling tests, still install
dbus-daemon-launch-helper (dbus!9, Simon McVittie)
Tests and CI:
• Add Travis-CI builds for 64-bit Windows using mingw-w64
