Avahi 0.6.3

Post Syndicated from Lennart Poettering original http://0pointer.net/blog/projects/avahi-0.6.3.html

A few days ago we relased Avahi 0.6.3. This is an important bugfix release, everyone should update as soon as possible.

Avahi now has its own domain avahi.org and finally has a logo, thanks to the great work of Mathieu Drouet:

Avahi Logo

Avahi has moved from Debian
Experimental to Unstable. Ubuntu moved
it from Universe to Main since it successfully passed their security
auditing. The Fedora
Core
development distribution contains it too, as does SuSE‘s
and Gentoo‘s. But
where’s Mandriva? Apparently they are considering
it
, for whatever it is worth. FreeBSD Ports has it
too. I guess this means that Avahi has now been accepted by all major
distributions. Hurrah!

Avahi 0.1 Looming

Post Syndicated from Lennart Poettering original http://0pointer.net/blog/projects/avahi-0.1.html

Avahi 0.1 is due in
the next few days. The last missing piece is a simplifying C wrapper around the
DBUS API. Though Avahi is currently pre-0.1 it is already quite complete and
mature. To put it with Ross Burton: “… this doesnt count as 0.1 because it
has docs, man pages *and* works”

Unfortunately python-dbus has quite a few bugs which make it very difficult
to code with. e.g. it doesn’t handle sending empty arrays, fails to send byte
values and so on. It is difficult to work around all these issues, therefore
the Avahi client tools will not work with an unpatched python-dbus. You need to
apply this
patch
(applying to 0.35.2) to fix at least the byte value bug to get
them working.
