./sysutils/dbus-python-common, Python bindings for the D-BUS message bus system

[ CVSweb ] [ Homepage ] [ RSS ] [ Required by ] [ Add to tracker ]


Branch: CURRENT, Version: 1.2.8, Package name: dbus-python-common-1.2.8, Maintainer: pkgsrc-users

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.

This package provides the Python D-BUS bindings.

Log message:
py-dbus, dbus-python-common: Update to 1.2.8

D-Bus Python Bindings 1.2.8 (2018-05-04)
========================================

The “cursed ice surface” release.

Dependencies:

• Documentation requires Sphinx and the readthedocs theme
• Documentation no longer requires epydoc

Enhancements:

• Build documentation with Sphinx instead of epydoc

• Remove obsolete COMPAT.txt, documenting compatibility breaks in
  versions over a decade old

Fixes:

• Make sure $(builddir)/test exists before creating .test files there

• Add PKG-INFO and egg_info to dist tarballs so they can be uploaded
  to PyPI again

Log message:
py-dbus: Update python dbus bindings to 1.2.6.

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

The “doppler radar” release.

Dependencies:

• 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 tap.py 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.

Enhancements:

• 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)

Fixes:

• 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

Log message:
Update python dbus bindings to 1.2.4.

D-Bus Python Bindings 1.2.4 (2016-03-06)
========================================

The “75,000 microchips” release.

Enhancements:

• Continous integration metadata for travis-ci.org is now available.
  Similar to dbus, this is split into .travis.yml (Travis-specifics)
  and tools/ci-build.sh (intended to be useful for any CI framework,
  although it does include various workarounds for travis-ci oddities).
  (Simon McVittie)

Fixes:

• Make dbus.version a tuple again, not a list, for consistent sorting.
  This was a regression in 1.2.2. (Debian #816729, Simon McVittie)

• Use inspect.signature() instead of inspect.getargspec() on Python
  versions that have it. inspect.getargspec() is deprecated in recent
  Python 3 and seems to have disappeared from 3.6 nightly builds.
  (Simon McVittie)

• Make the tests pass in "narrow" Python builds where unicode objects
  are UTF-16, rather than the UCS-4 used in Linux distributions.
  (fd.o #57140, Simon McVittie)

• Always include headers in a consistent order (Debian #749133, Simon McVittie)

• Include config.h in all C code that we compile. This is necessary
  on platforms where it might contain something like "#define _GNU_SOURCE"
  or "#define inline __inline".

Log message:
Update dbus python bindings to 1.2.2.

D-Bus Python Bindings 1.2.2 (2016-02-22)
========================================

The “mind fray” release.

Versioning changes:

• dbus-python releases now have an even micro version (1.2.0, 1.2.2),
  and snapshots from git have an odd micro version (1.2.1).

Dependencies:

• Building from git (but not from tarballs) now requires
  macros from the GNU Autoconf Archive, for example the autoconf-archive
  package in Debian or Fedora derivatives.

• Building from git (but not from tarballs) now requires Automake 1.13
  or later.

• The automated tests and some examples now require PyGI (the gi module),
  not PyGObject 2 (the deprecated glib and gobject modules).

Enhancements:

• There is now a setuptools setup.py, allowing dbus-python to be installed
  into a virtualenv using pip from a standard Automake source release. This
  requires pre-existing system-wide installations of the normal build
  dependencies (pkg-config, libdbus, dbus-glib, a C compiler) and has
  some limitations. For system-wide installations and development,
  please use the Autoconf/Automake build system directly.
  (fd.o #55439; Simon McVittie)

• dbus-python now uses the common compiler warnings from AX_COMPILER_FLAGS
  (Simon McVittie)

• The automated tests can now be installed as GNOME-style "installed \ 
tests",
  and should be somewhat more reliable (Simon McVittie)

Fixes:

• "from dbus.service import *" now imports FallbackObject
  (fd.o #85720; Ben Longbons)

• The GConf-related examples work again (fd.o #85720; Ben Longbons)

• Consistently make examples executable, and install them all
  (fd.o #85720; Ben Longbons)

• Search PATH for an appropriately-versioned pythonX.Y-config, or as a last
  resort python-config, if there isn't a ${PYTHON}-config in the
  same directory as ${PYTHON} (fd.o #92085; Yamashita, Yuu)

• Add support for the Automake 1.13 parallel test driver (Simon McVittie)

• Skip building API documentation if "import epydoc" fails (Simon \ 
McVittie)
