This is a bugfix release and contains a fix for a low risk security vulnerability.

  • Fix a local DoS vulnerability, where an assert() could be hit by passing empty TXT data over D-Bus to the Avahi daemon. (Low Risk)
  • Solaris/dbm portability fixes
  • Close all open file descriptors when daemonizing. Is generally safer and fixes a few issues with broken init systems of several distributions.
  • avahi-autoipd: allow passing the path of the action script on the command line.
  • Several minor build fixes and other cleanups

This release is backwards compatible with Avahi 0.6.x with x < 20.

Note: See TracRoadmap for help on using the roadmap.
