release: Prepare for 1.55.90

parent 72bf4547
Version 1.55.90
---------------
- New JS API: It's now possible to call and implement DBus methods whose
parameters or return types include file descriptor lists (type signature 'h'.)
This involves passing or receiving a Gio.UnixFDList instance along with the
parameters or return values.
To call a method with a file descriptor list, pass the Gio.UnixFDList along
with the rest of the parameters, in any order, the same way you would pass a
Gio.Cancellable or async callback.
For return values, things are a little more complicated, in order to avoid
breaking existing code. Previously, synchronously called DBus proxy methods
would return an unpacked GVariant. Now, but only if called with a
Gio.UnixFDList, they will return [unpacked GVariant, Gio.UnixFDList]. This
does not break existing code because it was not possible to call a method with
a Gio.UnixFDList before, and the return value is unchanged if not calling with
a Gio.UnixFDList. This does mean, unfortunately, that if you have a method
with an 'h' in its return signature but not in its argument signatures, you
will have to call it with an empty FDList in order to receive an FDList with
the return value, when calling synchronously.
On the DBus service side, when receiving a method call, we now pass the
Gio.UnixFDList received from DBus to the called method. Previously, sync
methods were passed the parameters, and async methods were passed the
parameters plus the Gio.DBusInvocation object. Appending the Gio.UnixFDList to
those parameters also should not break existing code.
See the new tests in installed-tests/js/testGDBus.js for examples of calling
methods with FD lists.
- We have observed on the CI server that GJS 1.55.90 will hang forever while
running the test suite compiled with GCC 9.0.0 and configured with the
--enable-asan and --enable-ubsan arguments. This should be addressed in one of
the following 1.55.x releases.
- Closed bugs and merge requests:
* GDBus proxy overrides should support Gio.DBusProxy.call_with_unix_fd_list()
[#204, !263, Philip Chimento]
* Add regression tests for GObject vfuncs [!259, Jason Hicks]
* GjsPrivate: Sources should be C files [!262, Philip Chimento]
* build: Vendor last-good version of AX_CODE_COVERAGE [!264, Philip Chimento]
Version 1.55.4
