dbus 1.12.12 (2018-12-04)

dbus version control is now hosted on's Gitlab installation, and bug reports and feature requests have switched from Bugzilla bugs (indicated by "fd.o #nnn") to Gitlab issues ("dbus#nnn") and merge requests ("dbus!nnn").


  • Reference the Code of Conduct


  • Stop the dbus-daemon leaking memory (an error message) if delivering the message that triggered auto-activation is forbidden. This is technically a denial of service because the dbus-daemon will run out of memory eventually, but it's a very slow and noisy one, because all the rejected messages are also very likely to have been logged to the system log, and its scope is typically limited by the finite number of activatable services available.
  • Remove attribute((malloc)) attribute on dbus_realloc(), which does not meet the criteria for that attribute in gcc 4.7+, potentially leading to miscompilation
  • Fix some small O(1) memory leaks
  • Fix printf formats for pointer-sized integers on 64-bit Windows
  • Always use select()-based poll() emulation on Darwin-based OSs (macOS, etc.) and on Interix, similar to what libcurl does
  • Extend a test timeout to avoid spurious failures in CI

Tests and CI:

  • Add Travis-CI builds for 64-bit Windows using mingw-w64
  • Add Gitlab-CI integration
