This is a new major release of libqmi, which will be the base for the new 1.20.x stable series (the new "qmi-1-20" branch in git).
A note for distribution packagers: the new ModemManager 1.8.0 series, not yet released, will depend on this version of libqmi.
Overview of changes in libqmi 1.20
* New services:
** loc: new "LOC" (location) service, which e.g. allows controlling GPS devices in newer modules that don't implement the PDS service. Just some very basic implementation for now.
* New request/responses:
** nas: new "Attach/Detach" request/response messages.
** wds: new "Get Channel Rates" request/response messages.
** dms: new 'Swi Get/Set USB Composition' request/response messages.
* New TLVs supported in existing messages:
** nas: new 'Extended LTE Band Preference' TLV in "Set/Get SSP".
** dms: new 'Extended LTE Band Capability' TLV in "Get Band Capabilities".
** New 'QMI_DEVICE_SIGNAL_REMOVED' signal in the QmiDevice object, propagated through the qmi-proxy.
** New 'QMI_CLIENT_VALID' property in the QmiClient that allows detecting whether the underlying QmiDevice is usable or not.
** Defined additional LTE bands.
** New '--wds-set-ip-family' command.
** New '--wds-get-channel-rates' command.
** New '--uim-read-record' command.
** New '--dms-swi-get-usb-composition' and '--dms-swi-set-usb-composition' commands.
* Several other minor improvements and fixes.
The following features which were backported to 1.18.x releases are also present in libqmi 1.20.0:
** Prefer realpath() to canonicalize_file_name().
** Avoid signals sent to the qmi-proxy process.
** Support USB3->USB2 mode changes during upgrade.
