Summary: D-Bus Service for Zeroconf and Bonjour
Avahi is an implementation of the DNS Service Discovery and Multicast
DNS specifications for Zeroconf Computing. It uses D-Bus for
communication between user applications and a system daemon. The daemon
is used to coordinate application efforts in caching replies, necessary
to minimize the traffic imposed on networks.

The Avahi mDNS responder is now complete with features, implementing
all MUSTs and the majority of the SHOULDs of the mDNS and DNS-SD RFCs.
It passes all tests in the Apple Bonjour conformance test suite. In
addition, it supports some nifty things, like correct mDNS reflection
across LAN segments.

  - Update to version 0.8:
    + The Avahi 0.8 release brings a number of new features and bug
      fix changes including a backward-compatible addition to the
      D-Bus API and the avahi-core API.
    + The existing API is still fully supported however clients
      using the new API will not work with older Avahi releases.
      The avahi-client library is not affected. See the "API Changes"
      section for further details.
    + New Features:
    - New options for filtering reflected queries between networks
    - New mainloop integration for Qt5 and libevent
    - docs/THREADS: Information for multi-threaded avahi-client
    - Listen on loopback interfaces by default, allowing local-only
      services to be consumed by the local machine
    - New D-Bus V2 API and additions to the avahi-core API for
      splitting "New" calls into "Prepare" and "Start". See "API
      Changes" for more details.
    + Notable Changes:
    - avahi-autoipd: Initial IP selection based on MAC previously
      ignored first octet - this will cause all hosts to select a
      different link-local IP than previous versions based on the
      same MAC address
    - avahi-daemon: Delay sending results on an object for 10ms in
      an attempt to give clients enough time to subscribe to
      signals from the new object after receiving it's path in
      response so the New call. See "API Changes" for more info
    + Bug Fixes:
    - avahi-python: Various Python 3 enhancements including
      encoding unicode strings as UTF-8
    - avahi-common: avahi_string_list_to_string will now escape
      embedded quotes, backslashes and control characters.
    - avahi-daemon: Fix a crash when txt records have an empty
      value in .xml service files
    - avahi-daemon: reflector: do not incorrectly cache responses
      on outgoing interfaces. Previously we would incorrectly cache
      responses reflected from one interface on the outgoing
      interface. These responses were later sent to clients on that
      network even if the original client had disappeared and could
      cause those clients to have a hostname conflict with
      themselves on restart. We no longer incorrectly cache such
    + Security Fixes:
    - Drop legacy unicast queries from address not on local link
      which can lead to UDP traffic amplification attacks
    + API Changes: The avahi-core API and D-Bus API have implemented
      a new API where a call to the "New" method can now be split
      into a "Prepare" and then "Start" method for some objects. The
      previous "New" API is still fully supported and there is no
      intention to deprecate it.
      This change affects the the following objects:
      AsyncAddressResolver, AsyncHostNameResolver,
      AsyncServiceResolver, DomainBrowser, RecordBrowser,
      ServiceBrowser, ServiceTypeBrowser
      This is because the D-Bus implementation in some languages
      would only bind to signals of an object after it was created
      and had received the new object's path. This led to such
      languages missing the initial results sent between the time the
      object was created and it had setup a filter to receive it's
      This primarily occured in languages that create dynamic
      bindings for D-Bus objects using introspection such as Python.
      The avahi-client C api was not affected as it globally binds to
      all avahi signals without specifying individual object paths
      and still makes use of the V1 API.
      The v2 Prepare/Start API is available under the new
      org.freedesktop.Avahi.Server2 D-Bus interface and also has
      corresponding avahi_s_* calls for users of the embedded
      avahi-core library.
      The old org.freedesktop.Avahi.Server interface is still
      supported and there is no intention to remove this API.
      Additionally this problem has also been solved for old clients
      by adding a very small 10ms delay before we start sending
      results to give the client time to bind to the signals which
      should silently fix the issue in most cases without introducing
      a noticable or impactful delay.
      Clients implementing the new org.freedesktop.Avahi.Server2
      D-Bus interface will not work with older Avahi daemons. It is
      suggested that clients may wish to either check for and
      fallback to the older API version, or continue to use the OLD
      API and rely on the 10ms timer to resolve the issue.

  - Update to version 0.7:
    + The Avahi 0.7 release brings two new features, binary TXT
      records in XML service files and the ability to start the
      gobject client in a custom context.
    + New Features:
    - Add support for binary values in TXT records in XML service
      files by specifying
      value-format="text|binary-hex|binary-base64". If not
      specified, defaults to the normal value of "text" (thus
      backwards compatible).
    - avahi-gobject: Allow starting the client in a custom
      GMainContext by passing context to ga_client_start_in_context
      instead of ga_client_start (avahi-gobject minor version has
      been incremented).
    + Notable Changes:
    - avahi-daemon: Remove all default rlimits from
      avahi-daemon.conf, as two main problems happened with firstly
      rlimit-nproc causing avahi to fail when started in a
      container without user namespaces and secondly because memory
      rlimits were causing avahi to crash in some cases. Leave it
      up to the init system to impose any modified limits instead.
      It is recommend to ship this change in distribution default
      config files.
    - avahi-common: Fix watch cleanup issue in watch_free

      . improved to work when called from another
      . Fix warnings when compiling against musl libc.
    - avahi-compat-libdns_sd: Fix incorrect URL in warnings.
    - service-type-database: Add new service Types: _ipps._tcp,
    - avahi-dnsconfd: Update manpage with the correct action script
    - avahi-gobject:
      . Use the correct shared library name in AvahiCore-0.6.gir
      . Fix build failing under some locales.
    - avahi-common/dbus-watch-glue.c: remove Unneeded semicolon.
    - Update gentoo init scripts for newer openrc version.
    + Updated translations.
  - Drop avahi-empty-share-dir.patch, avahi-gir-fixup.patch,
    avahi-move-everything-to-run.patch and avahi-outdated-URL.patch:
    Fixed upstream.
  - Drop systemd_requires macro: on a machine managed by systemd, we

    by systemd, we don't want to require it.
  - Add pkgconfig(pygobject-3.0) BuildRequires: New dependency.
* Thu Nov 23 2017

    + Do not mask failures: if a user can't be added, we have a
* Wed Feb 15 2017
  - Drop %insserv_cleanup scriptlets: it's been a while that avahi
    did not install any sysV init scripts anymore.
  - Simplify OBS is well able to handle macros
    in package names by now.
  - Drop conditions to only handle systemd services on openSUSE >
    12.1; it's been long that we did not ship the sysv scripts
    anymore and openSUSE 12.1 is long EOL.
* Mon Jul 11 2016
  - Replace avahi-0.6.31-systemd-order.patch with
    avahi-0.6.32-suppress-resolv-conf-warning.patch: only warn

    + Fix build on Solaris/SmartOS (filio.h issue).
    + Fix build on FreeBSD (PCAP_D_IN issue).
    + Fix debug output with libdaemon >= 0.14.
    + avahi_server_set_browse_domains now correctly uses the provided
      list, instead of re-using the list from the configuration file.
    + Set nl_pid to 0, this will automatically assign the value and
      prevent conflicts per netlink(7). (Bug #334).
    + Check for netlink pid=0 (kernel) instead of uid=0, which works
      correctly with network & user namespaces.
    + Fix reversed IFA_LOCAL and IFA_ADDRESS checks (Avahi#355).
    + Don't fail the build on deprecated GTK/GLIB usage.
    + Gracefully fail if SO_REUSEPORT is not available.
    + Minor Python 3 update for the python ServiceTypeDatabase test
      usage of print, should be backwards compatible.
    + avahi-autoipd: Fix incorrect usage of IFLA_RTA instead of
      IFA_RTA which could crash on ARM (Closes: gh#lathiat/avahi#42).
  - Drop upstream fixed patches:
    + avahi-unicastdomains.patch
    + avahi-gtk_box_new.patch

    installed for a long time already and are masking the sysv
    scripts; those scripts existance only add confusion (boo#959908).
* Mon Oct 19 2015
  - Temp disable 2 old Conflicts that are breaking staging. These can
    back in once there is a new release of avahi.
