== Ruby D-Bus 0.9.2 - 2013-05-08
Features:
* Ruby strings can be passed where byte arrays ("ay") are expected
(Issue#40, by Jesper B. Rosenkilde)
Bug fixes:
* Fixed accessing ModemManager properties (Issue#41, reported
by Ernest Bursa). MM introspection produces two elements
for a single interface; merge them.
== Ruby D-Bus 0.9.1 - 2013-04-23
Bug fixes:
* Prefer /etc/machine-id to /var/lib/dbus/machine-id
when DBUS_SESSION_BUS_ADDRESS is unset (Issue#39, by WU Jun).
== Ruby D-Bus 0.9.0 - 2012-11-06
Features:
* When calling methods, the interface can be left unspecified if unambiguous
(Damiano Stoffie)
* YARD documentation, Reference.md
Bug fixes:
* Introspection attribute "direction" can be omitted
as allowed by the specification (Noah Meyerhans).
* ProxyObjectInterface#on_signal no longer needs the "bus" parameter
(Issue#31, by Damiano Stoffie)
== Ruby D-Bus 0.8.0 - 2012-09-20
Features:
* Add Anonymous authentication (Issue#27, by Walter Brebels).
* Use Nokogiri for XML parsing when available (Issue#24, by Geoff Youngs).
Bug fixes:
* Use SCM_CREDS authentication only on FreeBSD, not on OpenBSD (Issue#21,
reported by Adde Nilsson).
* Recognize signature "h" (UNIX_FD) used eg. by Upstart (Issue#23,
by Bernd Ahlers).
* Find the session bus also via launchd, on OS X (Issue#20, reported
by Paul Sturgess).
Other:
* Now doing continuous integration with Travis:

== Ruby D-Bus 0.7.2 - 2012-04-05
A brown-paper-bag release.
Bug fixes:
* Fixed "undefined local variable or method `continue'" in
DBus::Main#run when a service becomes idle (by Ravil Bayramgalin)
== Ruby D-Bus 0.7.1 - 2012-04-04
Bug fixes:
* Fixed calling asynchronous methods on the default interface (Issue#13,
by Eugene Korbut).
* Fixed Main#quit to really quit the loop (by Josef Reidinger)
* Unbundled files from Active Support (by Bohuslav Kabrda)
== Ruby D-Bus 0.7.0 - 2011-07-26
Features:
* Added ASystemBus and ASessionBus, non-singletons useful in tests
and threads.
Bug fixes:
* Fixed handling of multibyte strings (Issue#8, by Takayuki YAMAGUCHI).
* Allow reopening of a dbus_interface declaration (Issue#9, by T. YAMAGUCHI).
* Fixed ruby-1.9.2 compatibility again (Issue#12).
* Fixed authentication on BSD (Issue#11, by Jonathan Walker)
* Fixed exiting a nested event loop for synchronous calls
(reported by Timo Warns).
* Fixed introspection calls leaking reply handlers.
* "rake test" now works, doing what was called "rake env:test"
== Ruby D-Bus 0.6.0 - 2010-12-11
Features:
* Clients can access properties conveniently (Ticket#28).
Bug fixes:
* Service won't crash whan handling an unknown method or interface (Ticket#31).
* Don't send an invalid error name when it originates from a NameError.
== Ruby D-Bus 0.5.0 - 2010-11-07
Features:
* Better binding of Ruby Exceptions to D-Bus Errors.
* Converted the package to a Gem (Issue#6).
* Converted the tutorial from Webgen to Markdown.
Bug fixes:
* Don't pass file descriptors to subprocesses.
* Fixed InterfaceElement::validate_name (Ticket#38, by Herwin Weststrate).
* Fixed a typo in InvalidDestinationName description (Ticket#40).
== Ruby D-Bus 0.4.0 - 2010-08-20
Features:
* TCP transport (by pangdudu)
* Enabled test code coverage report (rcov)
Bug fixes:
* Classes should not share all interfaces (Ticket#36/Issue#5)
* Ruby 1.9 compatibility (Ticket#37, by Myra Nelson)
== Ruby D-Bus 0.3.1 - 2010-07-22
Bug fixes:
* Many on_signal could cause DBus.Error.LimitsExceeded bnc#617350).
Don't add a match rule that already exists, enable removing match
rules. Now only one handler for a rule is called (but it is possible
for one signal to match more rules). This reverts the half-fix done
to fix Issue#3
* Re-added InterfaceElement#add_param for compatibility.
* Handle more ways which tell us that a bus connection has died.
== Ruby D-Bus 0.3.0 - 2010-03-28
Bug fixes:
* Fixed "undefined method `get_node' for nil:NilClass"
on Ubuntu Karmic (Ticket#34).
* Get the session bus address even if unset in ENV (Issue#4).
* Improved exceptions a bit:
UndefinedInterface, InvalidMethodName, NoMethodError, no RuntimeException
These are by Klaus Kaempf:
* Make the signal dispatcher call all handlers (Issue#3).
* Run on Ruby < 1.8.7 (Issue#2).
* Avoid needless DBus::IncompleteBufferException (Ticket#33).
* Don't ignore DBus Errors in request_service, raise them (Ticket#32).
Features:
* Automatic signature inference for variants.
* Introduced FormalParameter where a plain pair had been used.
== Ruby D-Bus 0.2.12 - 2010-01-24
Bug fixes:
* Fixed a long-standing bug where a service activated by the bus
would fail with "undefined method `get_node' for nil:NilClass"
(Tickets#25 and #29).
== Ruby D-Bus 0.2.11 - 2009-11-12
Features:
* Added DBus::Service#unexport (da1l6).
Bug fixes:
* Return org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.UnknownObject instead of crashing
(Ticket#31).
* Rescue exceptions in dbus_methods and reply with DBus errors instead of
crashing (da1l6).
* Better exception messages when sending nil, or mismatched structs.
* Call mktemp without --tmpdir, to build on older distros.
