Release of bluez-4.30

This previous release was not one of our best ones. At the UnPlugFest we focused so much on Simple Pairing support, that we actually broke the Legacy Pairing with Bluetooth 2.0 and earlier devices. This has been fixed now. In addition one show-stopper for Bluetooth 2.1 qualification has also been fixed.

Release of bluez-4.28

This release contains mostly fixes for the audio support. The SBC encoder should now produce a much better audio quality and its performance should increase noticeably on ARM and x86 platforms.

The ALSA plugin now contains a fix to avoid invalid memory access. This might break some audio players that make assumption on some ALSA API calls that are ambigue. Please report any problems you might encounter.

Release of bluez-4.27

This release contains multiple fixes for the Simple Pairing support and newer kernel versions. It highly improves the interoperability and the security handling with Bluetooth 2.1 based devices.

We also merged more SBC optimization patches that are now making use of MMX or ARM NEON extensions. This should highly improve the performance of the SBC encoder.

Release of bluez-4.26

In addition this release also contains two big updates to the SBC encoder and should now give better audio quality when using A2DP.

Release of bluez-4.24

This is the yearly X-mas release. So Merry Christmas to everyone.

bluez-4.24.tar.gz

It is nothing exciting compared to the previous release, but we fixed various adapter based signal emission and also made sure that on exit of the daemon all device are switched back off again.

And I spent quite some time to make sure we now compile nicely with -Wall and -Wextra to find common bugs quicker.
