* Released 1.2.1
2008-04-03 John (J5) Palmieri <>
Patch from Sumit <>, comments added
* dbus/dbus-transport.c(_dbus_transport_open): fix mem leak
2008-04-03 John (J5) Palmieri <>
* dbus/dbus-connection.c (dbus_connection_send): add documentation
to describe when to call dbus_connection_flush and
dbus_connection_unref after a call to dbus_connection_send is made
Initial wording by Stanislav Brabec <sbrabec at>
(fd.o bug#13558)
2008-04-03 John (J5) Palmieri <>
Patch from Kimmo Hämäläinen <kimmo.hamalainen at>
* bus/expirelist.c
(do_expiration_with_current_time): calculate correct min wait time
and next interval
(bus_expire_list_add, bus_expire_list_add_link): if the timeout is
disabled when we add an item to the expire list, enable the timeout
(do_expiration_with_current_time): only set timeout if there are
items to expire
2008-04-01 Timo Hoenig <>
Patch from Frederic Crozat <>
* bus/dir-watch-inotify.c (bus_watch_directory): Only monitor
way, only atomic changes to configuration file are monitored.
* bus/dir-watch-inotify.c (_handle_inotify_watch): Fix typo in
_dbus_verbose function call
* bus/dir-watch-inotify.c (bus_drop_all_directory_watches): Use
_dbus_strerror instead of perror
2008-03-04 Havoc Pennington <>
* bus/connection.c, bus/expirelist.c: Make the BusExpireList
struct opaque, adding accessors for manipulating the list. In this
commit there should be no change in functionality or behavior. The
purpose of this change is to improve encapsulation prior to fixing
some bugs Kimmo Hämäläinen found where the timeout is not properly
updated, since we need to e.g. take some action whenever adding
and removing stuff from the expire list.
2008-03-31 Colin Walters <>
Patch from Owen Taylor <>
* tools/dbus-launch-x11.c: Check for X11 events before
selecting (FDO bug #15293)

on all code paths (FDO bug #15293)
2008-03-27 Havoc Pennington <>
* tools/dbus-send.c (append_dict): Do not provide a signature to
dbus_message_iter_open_container() when opening a dict entry.
2008-03-26 Colin Walters <>
Patch from Scott James Remnant <>
* dbus/dbus-bus.c: Set default exit_on_disconnect after registration with
the bus, not before. This ensures that programs which wish to set
exit_on_disconnect to FALSE will not be terminated if the bus exits
during registration. (FDO Bug #15112)
2008-03-04 John (J5) Palmieri <>
* fix broken poll on Mac OSX - build patch by Benjamin Reed
* check for OSX's deadlocking poll
* dbus/dbus-sysdeps-unix.c (_dbus_poll): if we have a broken poll
don't use poll
2008-03-04 John (J5) Palmieri <>
* check if the linker supports a flag instead of just checking for GNU
* move AM_PROG_LIBTOOL to the top
(ld_supports_flag): new function for checking if the linker supports
a given flag
2008-03-04 John (J5) Palmieri <>
* add a changelog for Benjamin Reed's git patch RANT: Change Logs are
handled by git and having an external changelog just screws up
merging. We should write down rules for doing git commit messages
and leave it at that.
* Platform build fixes for Mac OS X
the Darwin linker does not understand the -z option; wrap it in
a check for $with_gnu_ld.
environ is only available at runtime, so you need to make a
reference to _NSGetEnviron instead for symbols to resolve properly.
2008-03-04 John (J5) Palmieri <>
2008-03-04 John (J5) Palmieri <>
* tools/dbus-launch.c: wrap X'ism in #ifdef so we can compile
without X
2008-02-28 John (J5) Palmieri <>
* dbus/dbus-sysdeps-unix.c: define _AI_ADDRCONFIG as 0 if not
defined so that we can compile with an older glibc
2008-02-26 John (J5) Palmieri <>
* Released 1.1.20
2008-02-26 John (J5) Palmieri <>

"some.interface.WithMethods"/> work as an implicit allow for
messages sent without an interface bypassing the default deny rules
and potentially allowing restricted methods exported on the bus to be
executed by unauthorized users. This patch fixes the issue.
* bus/policy.c (bus_client_policy_check_can_send,
bus_client_policy_check_can_receive): skip messages without an
interface when evaluating an allow rule, and thus pass it to the
default deny rules
2008-02-26 John (J5) Palmieri <>
* correctly unref connections without guids during shutdown
* dbus/dbus-connection.c (close_connection_on_shutdown): new method
split out from shared_connections_shutdown
(shared_connections_shutdown): shutdown all shared connections
without guids

* bus/dir-watch-inotify.c (bus_watch_directory): watch not only for
* bus/dir-watch-inotify.c (bus_drop_all_directory_watches): drop the

2007-11-23 Sjoerd Simons <>
* tools/dbus-launch.c: let both a normal dbus-launch and an
autolaunched bus save their parameters in X11 if possible. This makes
the autolaunch and non-autolaunch behaviour more similar. With the
exception that on a normal launch there will always be a new session
bus and not being able to save parameters is not fatal. This also
enables to launch programs directly with autolaunch (not very usefull
2007-10-31 Havoc Pennington <>
* bus/selinux.c (log_audit_callback): rewrite to use
* dbus/dbus-string.c (_dbus_string_copy_to_buffer): change to NOT
nul-terminate the buffer; fail an assertion if there is not enough
space in the target buffer. This fixes two bugs where
copy_to_buffer was used to copy the binary bytes in a UUID, where
nul termination did not make sense. Bug reported by David Castelow.
(_dbus_string_copy_to_buffer_with_nul): new function that always
nul-terminates the buffer, and fails an assertion if there is not
enough space in the buffer.

instead, which I believe ends up being the same as where it was
before, though I'm not sure I understand why it goes here.

my previous attempt at a fix would always enable them due to wrong
quoting. Patch from Colin Walters <>

* enable Autoconf's AC_C_INLINE to avoid compilation
failure with gcc -ansi
* dbus/dbus-macros.h, dbus/ Use new macro
_DBUS_GNUC_EXTENSION (the same as G_GNUC_EXTENSION) to avoid -ansi

dbus/dbus-transport.c, dbus/dbus-userdb.c: use that macro instead of
calling dbus_error_init() where it's clearly equivalent
*, dbus/dbus-sysdeps.h, dbus/dbus-sysdeps-unix.c: Fix
detection of i486 atomic ops. Previously, the attempts to determine
support at compile-time on Darwin were causing the i486 atomic ops to
be used on *all* i386 or x86-64 GCC builds (AH_VERBATIM can't be
conditionalized like we were trying to).
2007-10-10 Simon McVittie <>

* dbus/dbus-object-tree.h, dbus/dbus-object-tree.c,
dbus/dbus-connection.c, dbus/dbus-connection.h: add new functions
dbus_connection_try_register_object_path and
dbus_connection_try_register_fallback, which raise ObjectPathInUse
rather than asserting, to make object path registration less painful
for bindings

CVS implicitly ignored them; generally bring up to date

LD_FLAGS are set for each also.

We have to have the 'long' names as the service helper matches by
filename rather than by the name in the service file.

* dbus/dbus-sysdeps-util.c (_dbus_sysdeps_test): as I have pointed
out before, either 0xff needs to work on both platforms, or none
of the dbus code can rely on it working. That means the options
are 1) audit the code for anywhere that relies on 0xff working, if
none found ideally add a test that it *doesn't* work and make unix
reject it explicitly, but in any case this test would go away or
2) make it work on Windows also, then we don't have to figure out
whether we rely on it.
And in either case, post the exact patch to the mailing list and
don't just commit.

errno, though these are somewhat bogus (really we should make our
socket wrappers not use errno probably - the issue is that any
usage of errno that isn't socket-related probably is not
cross-platform, so should either be in a unix-only file that can

2007-06-14 Ralf Habacker <>
* reverted global rename of function _dbus_username_from_current_process.
It needs too much tests to verify that the change does not break anything.
I had overseen that the signatures are different and requires non
trivial changes.
This is one *major* disadvantage of emulating oop functionality with c.
You are responsible for cleaning every object on every function return point

* acinclude.m4, In recent autotools, ${datadir} is
defined in terms of ${datarootdir}, so EXPANDED_DATADIR needs to be
expanded recursively. Rather than fixing to do this, I
grabbed the AS_AC_EXPAND macro from, which seems to be
commonly used.

* Assorted improvements:
- Default user if $FDUSER is not set is the ssh default
(set in ~/.ssh/config or based on the local username), not a
hard-coded "johnp"
- Temporary checkout directory is created securely (preventing symlink
attacks), if mktemp(1) is available
- Use make -C rather than cd && make && cd ..

* bus/bus.c, bus/bus.h: Remove DBusUserDatabase from the BusContext
struct. It is unnecessary we have a global one already. Also remove
bus_context_get_user_database function, it is no longer needed.
Flush the global database on reload.
* dbus/dbus-userdb-util.c: Replace _dbus_user_database_get_groups
with _dbus_groups_from_uid. It no longer needs a DBusUserDatabase.
* dbus/dbus-userdb.c, dbus/dbus-userdb.h:
Add _dbus_user_database_flush_system.
Small unrelated change in _dbus_is_a_number: change

enough already.
2006-11-14 Havoc Pennington <>
* dbus/dbus-internals.c (_dbus_generate_uuid): The spec said the
UUID had the timestamp last, but the implementation had it first;
move it to last since I think it's a tiny bit nicer (easier to
compare at a glance, faster to sort, less code), and will not
cause any practical compatibility problems. Also, always convert
the timestamp to big endian.

as a replacement for regular uuidgen/RFC4122.
