Release of BlueZ 5.4

It has been a fairly quiet period since BlueZ 5.3 (hopefully meaning the current tree is in a pretty good shape and doesn’t have any major issues) but the amount of fixes and minor feature additions has now grown big enough to justify a new release. So here we go with BlueZ 5.4! It consists mostly of bug fixes but some new features have also crept in:

  • Improved AVRCP 1.5 feature support (mostly player handling related)
  • New key mappings for AVRCP Target role (for systems that need more than traditional playback control)
  • Improved MAP client features, including Message Notification Service (MNS)
  • Improved command line client (client/bluetoothctl) agent callback support
