dbus is the reference implementation of D-Bus, a message bus for
communication between applications and system services.

git tag: dbus-1.14.2


• Fix build failure on FreeBSD (dbus!277, Alex Richardson)

• Fix build failure on macOS with launchd enabled
  (dbus!287, Dawid Wróbel)

• Preserve errno on failure to open /proc/self/oom_score_adj
  (dbus!285, Gentoo#834725; Mike Gilbert)

• On Linux, don't log warnings if oom_score_adj is read-only but does not
  need to be changed (dbus!291, Simon McVittie)

• Slightly improve error-handling for inotify
  (dbus!235, Simon McVittie)

• Don't crash if dbus-daemon is asked to watch more than 128 directories
  for changes (dbus!302, Jan Tojnar)

• Autotools build system fixes:
  · Don't treat --with-x or --with-x=yes as a request to disable X11,
    fixing a regression in 1.13.20. Instead, require X11 libraries and
    fail if they cannot be detected. (dbus!263, Lars Wendler)
  · When a CMake project uses an Autotools-built libdbus in a
    non-standard prefix, find dbus-arch-deps.h successfully
    (dbus#314, Simon McVittie)
  · Don't include generated XML catalog in source releases
    (dbus!317, Jan Tojnar)
  · Improve robustness of detecting gcc __sync atomic builtins
    (dbus!320, Alex Richardson)

• CMake build system fixes:
  · Detect endianness correctly, fixing interoperability with other D-Bus
    implementations on big-endian systems (dbus#375, Ralf Habacker)
  · When building for Unix, install session and system bus setup
    in the intended locations
    (dbus!267, dbus!297; Ralf Habacker, Alex Richardson)
  · Detect setresuid() and getresuid() (dbus!319, Alex Richardson)
  · Detect backtrace() on FreeBSD (dbus!281, Alex Richardson)
  · Don't include headers from parent directory (dbus!282, Alex Richardson)
  · Distinguish between host and target TMPDIR when cross-compiling
    (dbus!279, Alex Richardson)
  · Fix detection of atomic operations (dbus!306, Alex Richardson)

Tests and CI enhancements:

• On Unix, skip tests that switch uid if run in a container that is
  unable to do so, instead of failing (dbus#407, Simon McVittie)

• Use the latest MSYS2 packages for CI
  (Ralf Habacker, Simon McVittie)
