Release of bluez-4.8

The pairing fixes from the previous release caused two regressions that made bluetoothd crashes. This release fixes both of them.


It also re-enables the HAL plugin by talking directly to the HAL service. The requirement for libhal is now obsolete.

The hciconfig and hcitool low-level commands have been fixed to show all extended features pages. This is important since the page 1 indicates the host stack support for Simple Pairing.

Release of bluez-gnome-1.5

Add support for integration with GIO and fix left-overs from usage of BlueZ 3.x interface migration.


Release of bluez-4.7

This release fixes a lot of bugs in the pairing and also removes a lot of left-over code from the 3.x series.


Release of obexd-0.4

This release fixes a receiving issue and adds the first steps for a plugin based infrastructure.


Release of bluez-4.6

This release adds support for proper authentication and encryption of HID capable input devices. It should also add a smooth upgrade path of configured input devices from BlueZ 3.x to the 4.x series.


Release of bluez-gnome-1.4

This release adds the missing browse menu item and fixes some issues with the device discovery. The wizard now has Simple Pairing support and should work better with headphones, keyboards and mice.


Release of bluez-4.5

This release fixes a couple of regression with the adapter initialization and the input service.


We are still working on improvements in both areas and this release is just to get it going again.

Release of bluez-4.4

And another brown paper bag release. Sorry about that, but I forgot to check the compilation of the CUPS backend. This release adds a temporary fix. It also adds the missing service API description.
