- Update to 0.7
* Features:
- announce status to systemd via sd_notify (using a simple custom implementation)
* Bug fixes:
- properly update global security level status
- adapt to systemd 240 not sending bind/unbind uevents
- fix compilation on musl
- daemon: use g_unix_signal_source? to catch signals
* Improvements
- precondition checks cleanup and completion
- error cleanup
- fix some leaks and issues uncovered by coverity

2018-12-10 - Robert Frohl <>
Update to 0.6
- New Features:
* pre-boot access control list, aka. BootACL support
- domains objects are now persistent
* new Uid (dbus) / uid (object) property derived from the uuid of the device representing the root switch
* sysfs and id attribute will be set/unset on connects and disconnects
* domains are now stored in the boltd database
- domains got the BootACL (dbus) / bootacl (object) property
* uuids can be added, removed or set in batch
* when domain is online: changes are written to the sysfs boot_acl attribute directly
* when domain is offline: changes are written to a journal and then reapplied in order when the domain is connected
- newly enrolled devices get added to all bootacls of all domains if the policy is BOLT_POLICY_AUTO
- removed devices get deleted from all bootacls of all domains
- boltacl domain command will show the bootacl slots and their content
* boltctl gained the -U, --uuid option, to control how uuids are printed
- Improvements and fixes:
* Testing
- boltctl is now included in the tests
* Bugs and robustness:
- The device state is verified in Device.Authorize
- Handle empty 'keys' sysfs device attribute
- Properly adjust policies when enrolling already authorized devices
- Fix potential crasher when logging assertions g_return_if_fail
