Now that the core release is out of the door, a initial release of
DBusKit seemed only fitting, so here it is:
1 GNUstep DBusKit Framework 0.1
This is the first public release of DBusKit, the GNUstep D-Bus bindings
framework. The framework allows Objective-C applications to access the
D-Bus inter-process communication system.
1.1 Where to get it
You may obtain the code for this release from the GNUstep subversion
Alternatively, a compressed archive for this release is available at
the following address:
The integrity of the archive can be verified using the following
1.2 How to build it
For instructions on how to build DBusKit, please refer to the `INSTALL'
file in the framework source.
1.3 What is it good for?
The DBusKit framework offers tight integration of D-Bus services into
Objective-C applications. It handles all low-level details of
communication with D-Bus daemons and the services connected to them and
exposes an interface similar to Distributed Objects to make it easy for
Objective-C programmers to access D-Bus services. Highlights of the
initial release include:
* Distributed Objects-like API for exchanging messages with D-Bus
* A notification center class for watching signals emitted by D-Bus
* `dk_make_interface' tool to generate Objective-C protocol
declarations from D-Bus interface files.
1.4 Where do I send bug reports?
DBusKit is a relatively new framework and will certaintly contain bugs.
Reporting them is always appreciated. You can log bug reports on the
GNUstep project page (http://savannah.gnu.org/bugs/?group=gnustep) or
send them to <address@hidden>.
Once more, I'd like to thank everybody who helped out with bug reports
and insightful comments. With this release, we have basic support for
calling out to D-Bus services, but I am committed to improving things so
that Objective-C apps can also expose D-Bus services themselves.
