“dbus” 1.2.16-2ubuntu4.7 source package in Ubuntu

Changelog

dbus (1.2.16-2ubuntu4.7) lucid-security; urgency=low

  * REGRESSION FIX: some applications launched with the activation helper
    may need DBUS_STARTER_ADDRESS. (LP: #1058343)
    - debian/patches/CVE-2012-3524-regression-fix.patch: hardcode the
      starter address to the default system bus address.
  * REGRESSION FIX: unclean shutdown after dbus upgrade (LP: #740390)
    - debian/libdbus-1-3.postinst: trigger an upstart re-exec before
      shutdown or reboot so that it can safely unmount the root
      filesystem.

Binary packages built by this source

dbus: simple interprocess messaging system

 D-Bus is a message bus, used for sending messages between applications.
 Conceptually, it fits somewhere in between raw sockets and CORBA in
 terms of complexity.
 .
 D-Bus supports broadcast messages, asynchronous messages (thus
 decreasing latency), authentication, and more. It is designed to be
 low-overhead; messages are sent using a binary protocol, not using
 XML. D-Bus also supports a method call mapping for its messages, but
 it is not required; this makes using the system quite simple.
 .
 It comes with several bindings, including GLib, Python, Qt and Java.
 .
 This package contains the D-Bus daemon and related utilities.
 .
 The client-side library can be found in the libdbus-1-3 package, as it is no
 longer contained in this package.

dbus-1-doc: simple interprocess messaging system (documentation)

 D-Bus is a message bus, used for sending messages between applications.
 Conceptually, it fits somewhere in between raw sockets and CORBA in
 terms of complexity.
 .
 This package contains the API documentation for D-Bus, as well as
 the protocol specification.
 .
 See the dbus description for more information about D-Bus in general.

dbus-x11: simple interprocess messaging system (X11 deps)

 D-Bus is a message bus, used for sending messages between applications.
 Conceptually, it fits somewhere in between raw sockets and CORBA in
 terms of complexity.
 .
 This package contains the dbus-launch utility which is necessary for
 packages using a D-Bus session bus.
 .
 See the dbus description for more information about D-Bus in general.

 The daemon can be found in the dbus package.

libdbus-1-dev: simple interprocess messaging system (development headers)

 D-Bus is a message bus, used for sending messages between applications.
 Conceptually, it fits somewhere in between raw sockets and CORBA in
 terms of complexity.
