Summary: dbus-python-1.2.6dbus-python-1.2.6 (pythin module)

D-Bus Python Bindings 1.2.6 (2018-01-29)

The “doppler radar” release.


  • When using Python 2, version 2.7 is now required. Python 2.6 security support ended in 2013.
  • When using Python 3, version 3.4 or later is now required. Python 3.2 security support ended in 2016, and Python 3.3 security support ended in 2017.
  • Most unit tests now require the module from PyPI.
  • The deprecated dbus-glib library is no longer required. A bundled copy of its main loop integration code is included instead.
  • GLib version 2.40 or later is required.
  • libdbus version 1.8 or later is required.


  • AX_PYTHON_DEVEL is now used to find the CPPFLAGS, LDFLAGS and libraries needed to link test-import-repeatedly to libpython, which should reduce the number of wheels reinvented here.
  • Remove workarounds for Python 2.6 limitations
  • All unit tests now produce structured output (TAP)


  • Fix a NULL dereference in constructing a Server if the underlying C function fails
  • Silence compiler warnings triggered by the Python headers under gcc 7
  • Avoid gtype appearing in documentation, for reproducible builds
  • Rename _dbus_bindings/ and _dbus_glib_bindings/ source directories to dbus_bindings/ and dbus_glib_bindings/ to avoid an ImportWarning appearing in the API documentation, which made the documentation build non-reproducible
