Branch: pkgsrc-2008Q1, Version: 0.74, Package name: dbus-glib-0.74, Maintainer: jmmv

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 D-BUS interface to GLib and the dbus-monitor
utility (included here because it also uses GLib).
