Fedora Update Notification

Name        : at-spi2-core
Product     : Fedora 15
Version     : 1.91.91
Release     : 1.fc15
URL         : http://www.linuxfoundation.org/en/AT-SPI_on_D-Bus
Summary     : Protocol definitions and daemon for D-Bus at-spi
Description :
at-spi allows assistive technologies to access GTK-based
applications. Essentially it exposes the internals of applications for
automation, so tools such as screen readers, magnifiers, or even
scripting interfaces can query and interact with GUI controls.

This version of at-spi is a major break from previous versions.
It has been completely rewritten to use D-Bus rather than
ORBIT / CORBA for its transport protocol.

Update Information:

This update contains the accessibility stack that is part of GNOME 2.91.91.

Changes in at-spi2-core:
* Changed device event IPC to use uint32 for hw_code and modifiers, to be more consistent with the rest of the API.
* GetNSelections has an out parameter, not an in.
* Fix for BGO#643384: - atspi_register_keystroke_listener() should take a bitmask, not AtspiKeyListenerSyncType.
* Avoid setting enum values to 0x80000000, to prevent a pygi exception.
* Fix for BGO#643454: Kill the accessibility bus daemon with the GNOME session
* Fix for BGO#643110: Do not allow all users to connect to the accessibility bus.

Changes in at-spi2-atk:
* Fix some missing prototypes.
* Do not exit if the accessibility bus disconnects.
* Fix for BGO#641338: Avoid crashing when unable to listen for p2p connections.
* Set /tmp/at-spi2 to be world-writable.
* Fix for BGO#641869: Remove --enable-relocate option.
* Changed accessibility key name as was done in gsettings-desktop-schemas.
* Fixed several memory leaks.
* Fixed some build errors.

Changes in pyatspi:
* Fix for BGO#643384: registerKeystrokeListener should pass a bit mask, not an enum.
