  • Fix issues introduced by last release 2.4.9:
    • a crash on startup.
    • Revert the new desktop ID detection code as that turned out to not work for non-root user that geoclue is supposed to be run as.
  • Use systemd's service file to lockdown the geoclue daemon to stop eventual security problems.


  • Modem GPS refresh rate is now based on the location refresh rate of apps.
  • Refuse location access if no app-auth agent is registered. This fixes a security hole where an app requests location access before the agent gets to register itself and we end up giving out locaiton access even though user has disabled it.
  • Port desktop ID detection to Flatpak >= 0.6.10.
  • The default timeout on the service binary is now the same as the service itself: 5 seconds.
  • Demo applications:
    • where-am-i now allows setting location refresh-rate.
    • Only install demo agent's desktop file if it's enabled.
    • Build and install demo agent unless disabled explicitly.
    • Autostart the demo agent by default on non-GNOME platforms, since an agent is required now and no one other than GNOME yet provides one (sigh).
