The “Ice Cabbage” release.


• Change how we create /var/lib/dbus so it works under
  Automake >= 1.11.4 (fd.o #51406, Simon McVittie)

• Don't return from dbus_pending_call_set_notify with a lock held on OOM
  (fd.o #51032, Simon McVittie)

• Disconnect "developer mode" (assertions, verbose mode etc.) from
  Automake maintainer mode. D-Bus developers should now configure with
  --enable-developer. Automake maintainer mode is now on by default;
  distributions can disable it with --disable-maintainer-mode.
  (fd.o #34671, Simon McVittie)

• Automatically define DBUS_STATIC_BUILD in static-only Autotools
  builds, fixing linking when targeting Windows
  (fd.o #33973; william, Simon McVittie)

• Unix-specific:
  · Check for libpthread under CMake on Unix (fd.o #47237,
    Simon McVittie)
