It’s been awhile since the last BlueZ release, but now we finally have another one out. Most of the fixes are LE (specifically GATT) related, however a some other areas are affected as well. Feature-wise, there’s a new MIDI plugin and support for using single-mode (LE-only) controllers that lack a public address (therefore necessitating the [...]

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 [...]

BlueZ 5.41 is purely a bug-fix release targeting areas such as GATT, AVRCP,  OBEX and device discovery filters. The GATT D-Bus API is now starting to be stable enough that this will likely be the last release where it is flagged as experimental. bluez-5.41.tar.xz

One new feature is the ability to use btmon for reading HCI logs from a TTY device. Right now the creation of this kind of logs is available with Zephyr [...]

This release has lots of updates and fixes to the GATT D-Bus API. It should be working considerably better now. 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. Instead of registering each service individually with an Object Manager interface [...]
