The “nobody wants red” release. This is a bugfix release on the 1.8 branch.

git tag: dbus-1.8.2
new git branch: dbus-1.8


• in the CMake build system, add some hints for Linux users
  cross-compiling Windows D-Bus binaries to be able to run tests under
  Wine (fd.o #41252, Ralf Habacker)

• add Documentation key to dbus.service (fd.o #77447, Cameron Norman)


• in "dbus-uuidgen --ensure", try to copy systemd's /etc/machine-id
  to /var/lib/dbus/machine-id instead of generating an entirely new ID
  (fd.o #77941, Simon McVittie)

• if dbus-launch receives an X error very quickly, do not kill
  unrelated processes (fd.o #74698, Роман Донченко)

• on Windows, allow up to 8K connections to the dbus-daemon, instead of
  the previous 64 (fd.o #71297; Cristian Onet, Ralf Habacker)

• cope with \r\n newlines in regression tests, since on Windows,
  dbus-daemon.exe uses text mode (fd.o #75863, Руслан Ижбулатов)
