This is almost purely a bug-fix release with fixes to HoG, ATT and PAN. There’s also a fix for a regression in 5.42 that caused connection failures for external profiles like OBEX. Feature-wise there’s one notable addition: LE privacy. By enabling this in main.conf it’s now possible to make BlueZ generate a local Identity Resolving [...]

The major API change with this release is that the GATT D-Bus API is no longer marked as experimental.This should hopefully encourage the creation of more applications using it. Feature-wise, btmon received support for decoding full mgmt message traces – a feature that is available in the bluetooth-next kernel tree, i.e. on its way to [...]

A key change to the GATT D-Bus API is that it is now fully conforming to the word of the D-Bus Object Manager specification.

Here’s the traditional X-mas/end-of-year release of BlueZ. Most of the changes are bug fixes, targeting areas such as GATT and external profile registration. Another large chunk of changes is refactoring to use the same implementation for Android and ... [More] non-Android LE profiles (e.g. HoG). With this release btattach (the successor to hciattach) finally has a manual [...] [Less]
