New point version
dbus-python is the original Python binding for dbus, the reference implementation of the D-Bus protocol. Its main feature is that it is compatible with older versions of dbus-python. Consider using a different D-Bus binding or implementation in new Python code. dbus-python version control is now hosted on freedesktop.org's Gitlab installation, and bug reports and feature requests have switched from Bugzilla bugs (indicated by "fd.o #nnn") to Gitlab issues ("dbus-python#nnn") and merge requests ("dbus-python!nnn"). See README and CONTRIBUTING.md for more details. <http://dbus.freedesktop.org/releases/dbus/dbus-python-1.2.10.tar.gz> <http://dbus.freedesktop.org/releases/dbus/dbus-python-1.2.10.tar.gz.asc> git tag: dbus-python-1.2.10 The “wingèd horse” release. Dependencies: • dbus 1.8 was already required, but is more strongly required now: the workarounds that were used to run continuous integration with dbus 1.6 on Ubuntu 14.04 'trusty' have been removed. (Note that dbus 1.8 has already reached end-of-life for security support, and newer dbus stable branches are strongly recommended.) • When using Python 3, version 3.5 or later is strongly recommended. Python 3.4 security support ended in March 2019. No specific incompatibilities are known, but using dbus-python on Python 3.4 is no longer tested or supported. Enhancements: • Rewrite CONTRIBUTING.md document, based on Wayland's equivalent (Simon McVittie, with thanks to Ander Conselvan de Oliveira, Bryce Harrington, Eric Engestrom, Pekka Paalanen and Daniel Stone for their contributions to the equivalent file in Wayland) • A generated ChangeLog file is no longer included in source tarballs. Please refer to the git repository at https://gitlab.freedesktop.org/dbus/dbus-python for detailed change history. (Simon McVittie) • Improve continuous integration to be run by GitLab in addition to Travis-CI (Simon McVittie) • Add clearer license information using SPDX-License-Identifier (Simon McVittie) • Improve test coverage (Simon McVittie) Fixes: • Don't set deprecated tp_print to NULL under Python 3, fixing build warnings with Python 3.8 pre-releases (Simon McVittie) • Include inherited methods and properties when documenting objects, which regressed when migrating from epydoc to sphinx (Simon McVittie) • Add missing variant_level member to UnixFd type, for parity with the other dbus.types types (dbus-python!3; John Baublitz) - Note that this is a potentially incompatible change: unknown keyword arguments were previously ignored (!) and are now an error. • Don't reply to method calls if they have the NO_REPLY_EXPECTED flag (fd.o#32529, dbus-python#26; Simon McVittie) • Silence -Wcast-function-type with gcc 8 (Simon McVittie) • Fix distcheck with python3.7 by deleting __pycache__ during uninstall (Simon McVittie) • Consistently save and restore the exception indicator when called from C code (Simon McVittie) • Avoid a long-standing race condition in the automated tests (Debian #898158; Simon McVittie) • Fix Qt website URL (Ralf Habacker) -- Simon McVittie, Collabora Ltd.
