+The “monster lasagna” release.
+
+Dependencies:
+
+• Ducktype and yelp-tools are now required to build complete documentation.
+
+Enhancements:
+
+• D-Bus Specification version 0.26
+ · GetConnectionCredentials can return LinuxSecurityLabel or WindowsSID
+ · document the BecomeMonitor method
+
+• On Linux, add LinuxSecurityLabel to GetConnectionCredentials
+ (fd.o #89041; Tyler Hicks, Simon McVittie)
+
+• On Linux, add support for AppArmor mediation of message sending and
+ receiving and name ownership (paralleling existing SELinux mediation
+ support), and eavesdropping (a new check, currently AppArmor-specific)
+ (fd.o #75113; John Johansen, Tyler Hicks, Simon McVittie)
+
+• In dbus-send and dbus-monitor, pretty-print \0-terminated bytestrings
+ that have printable ASCII contents; we previously only did this for
+ unterminated bytestrings (fd.o #89109, Simon McVittie)
+
+• Add a guide to designing good D-Bus APIs (fd.o #88994, Philip Withnall)
+
+• On Windows, add WindowsSID to GetConnectionCredentials
+ (fd.o #54445, Ralf Habacker)
+
+• Improve clarity of dbus-monitor --profile output and add more columns
+ (fd.o #89165, Ralf Habacker)
+
+• Add a man page for dbus-test-tool, and build it under CMake as well
+ as Autotools (fd.o#89086, Simon McVittie)
+
+• If dbus-daemon was compiled with --enable-verbose, add a D-Bus API
+ to control it at runtime, overriding the DBUS_VERBOSE environment variable
+ (fd.o #88896, Ralf Habacker)
+
+Fixes:
+
+• Reduce the number of file descriptors used in the fd-passing test,
+ avoiding failure under the default Linux fd limit, and automatically
+ skip it if the rlimit is too small (fd.o #88998, Simon McVittie)
