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

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

Branch: CURRENT, Version: 1.2.12, Package name: dbus-python-common-1.2.12, 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:
dbus-python-common: update to 1.2.12.

dbus Python Bindings 1.2.12 (2019-09-12)

The “spinal bap” release.


• Don't save and restore the exception indicator when called from C code.
  This avoided "returned a result with an error set" errors under some
  circumstances, but also caused a regression for code that relies on
  being able to terminate the program by calling sys.exit() or raising
  SystemExit from a dbus-python method. In particular, this broke one of
  libsecret's unit tests. (Debian #940087; Simon McVittie)

D-Bus Python Bindings 1.2.10 (2019-09-02)

The “wingèd horse” release.

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"). \ 
and CONTRIBUTING.md for more details.


• 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.


• 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)


• 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)

sysutils: align variable assignments

pkglint -Wall -F --only aligned --only indent -r

Manually excluded consolekit and dc-tools since pkglint didn't get the
formatting correct.

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.


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


• Build documentation with Sphinx instead of epydoc

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


• 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.


• 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.


• 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)


• 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
