Overview of changes in libmbim 1.24.4
----------------------------------------
* libmbim-glib,device:
** Added new mbim_device_get_transaction_id() to retrieve the transaction
id currently being used.
* libmbim-glib,proxy:
** Fixed the transaction id used in fragments of the same request.
** Avoid creating device context when it's already being untracked.
** Fixed double GError free.
* mbimcli:
** Fixed missing EOL in error string when closing device.
Overview of changes in libmbim 1.24.2
----------------------------------------
* libmbim-glib:
** Fixed several issues in the logic that merges the service subscribe list.
** Improved message reading logic to skip malformed MBIM messages (e.g. AT
URCs emitted wrongly in the MBIM port by some Cinterion modules).
Overview of changes in libmbim 1.24
----------------------------------------
* Build now requires GLib/GObject/GIO 2.48.
* Added new GObject Introspection support in the library, that can be
explicitly requested during configure with --enable-introspection=yes.
With the new introspection support, the libmbim-glib library can now be
used directly from e.g. python programs, as in the example included with
the release.
* Added release version information to all the types and methods of the public
library API, and added new per-version indices in the documentation.
* Added g_autoptr() support to all public types.
* Several other minor improvements and fixes.
Overview of changes in libmbim 1.22
----------------------------------------
* Build updated with several improvements:
** The build has been updated to use by default all warnings enabled by
AX_COMPILER_FLAGS(), and therefore when building the release from a git
checkout, autoconf-archive >= 2017.03.21 is now required. This new build
dependency isn't required when building from the release tarball.
** Also when building from a git checkout, beware because by default
--enable-compile-warnings=error is enabled, which implies -Werror. If
you'd like to build from git and avoid -Werror, you should explicitly use
--enable-compile-warnings=yes (to keep the warnings but without being
errors), --enable-compile-warnings=no (to disable all the extra warnings
enabled by default) or --disable-Werror (to unconditionally make all
compiler warnings non-fatal).
* libmbim-glib:
** Message parsing logic improved to avoid reading fields out of bounds, e.g.
if the messages sent by the modem are malformed or not in line with the
specs.
* Several other minor improvements and fixes.
The following features which were backported to 1.20.x releases are also present
in libmbim 1.22.0:
* libmbim-glib: fixed handling of fragmented indication messages.
* mbimcli: added --query-provisioned-contexts.
* mbim-proxy: fix logic when symlinks to cdc-wdm ports are used.
Overview of changes in libmbim 1.20
----------------------------------------
* Build updated with several fixes:
** Explicitly define max allowed GLib version.
** Fix issues with -Werror=type-limits.
** Made compiler warning options compatible with clang.
* mbim-proxy:
** Fixed client subscription to service indications using wildcard.
** Fixed client subscription update logic when services/cids are being
removed.
** New '--empty-timeout=[SECS}' option to specify the empty lifetime
duration.
** New '--no-exit' option to avoid the proxy from exiting.
* Several other minor improvements and fixes.
The following features which were backported to 1.18.x releases are also present
in libmbim 1.20.0:
* mbim-proxy: default empty lifetime set to 300s.
Overview of changes in libmbim 1.18
----------------------------------------
* Build now looks for the correct python provider in the system during
configure.
* New Microsoft Basic Connect Extensions service, that includes new commands to
manage Protocol Configuration Operations (PCO) as well as LTE attach status
and settings.
* libmbim-glib:
** Added support to fully print all message contents, including all fields,
when traces are enabled.
** Added support for QMI indications over MBIM.
** Added additional cause codes to MbimNwError.
** Fixed signal emission in device, so that it's done before completing
transaction task.
* mbim-proxy:
** Fixed the management of subscribed events, so that the lists are
maintained per-device.
* mbimcli:
** New '--ms-query-pco' action.
** New '--ms-query-lte-attach-configuration' action.
** New '--ms-query-lte-attach-status' action.
* Several other minor improvements and fixes.
The following features which were backported to 1.16.x releases are also present
in libmbim 1.18.0:
* mbimcli:
** Fix SNR reporting in --atds-query-signal output.
** Longer timeout (60s) in --disconnect.
** Add "ip-type" property to --connect
* libmbim-glib:
** Fix printing message in Intel Firmware Update service.
** Fix error reporting when unknown status.
Overview of changes in libmbim 1.16
----------------------------------------
* Build now requires GLib 2.36.
* All the code base was ported to use the GTask based asynchronous operations
support instead of the deprecated GSimpleAsyncResult.
* New AT&T Device Service support, that includes operator-specific commands to
query signal info or cell location.
* New Intel Firmware Update Service support, that includes commands to request
the Intel-based module to reboot in firmware download mode.
* libmbim-glib:
** Added MBIM_STATUS_ERROR_CONTEXT_NOT_SUPPORTED to MbimStatusError.
** Avoid using iconv() directly for the UTF-16BE conversions, which makes it
possible to use libmbim on systems with a stub iconv() implementation.
** Added support to detect already open MBIM channels on the Sierra Wireless
EM7345.
* mbimcli:
** New '--query-ip-packet-filters' action.
** New '--query-pin-list' action.
** New '--atds-query-signal' and '--atds-query-location' actions.
** New '--intel-modem-reboot' action.
* Several other minor improvements and fixes.
The following features which were backported to 1.14.x releases are also present
in libmbim 1.16.0:
* libmbim-glib:
** Prefer realpath() to canonicalize_file_name().
** Added MBIM_READY_INFO_FLAG_NONE to MbimReadyInfoFlag.
* mbim-proxy:
** Avoid receiving signals from the parent process.
* mbimcli:
** Add cancellability to the query-ip-configuration action.
Overview of changes in libmbim 1.14
----------------------------------------
* New support for the 'QMI over MBIM' service, so that clients can use libqmi to
build messages and libmbim to transport them.
* The GUDev library, which we use to read the max message size from the USB
descriptor, is now optional. When configuring, it will be used by default only
if it's found. It can also be explicitly disabled using the new configure
switch '--without-udev' or explicitly enabled using '--with-udev'. If GUDev
isn't used, libmbim-glib will rely on sysfs directly.
* libmbim-glib updates:
** Added support for building messages of custom services.
* mbim-network updates:
** Added support for loading profiles from different paths using the new
'--profile' option. This makes it possible to use mbim-network with
multiple devices running in the same system.
** Added support to allow specifying APN user (APN_USER), password (APN_PASS)
and authentication type (APN_AUTH) in the profile.
** Added support to allow using the mbim-proxy setup by configuring it in
the profile file (PROXY=yes).
* Several other minor improvements and fixes.
The following features which were backported to 1.12.x releases are also present
in libmbim 1.14.0:
* mbimcli updates:
** Updated '--connect' arguments to allow specifying "key=value" pairs. The
old legacy "[(APN),(PAP|CHAP|MSCHAPV2),(Username),(Password)]" format is
kept as valid for backwards compatibility, although it should be assumed
deprecated.
** Longer timeouts for connect/register operations.
** Report IP configuration when connected.
** Allow specifying session ids.
* libmbim-glib updates:
** Probing retry interval increased to 5s.
Overview of changes in libmbim 1.12
----------------------------------------
* New `--enable-mbim-username' option during configure, which allows specifying
which will be the user owning the /dev/cdc-wdm character devices of all MBIM
modems (udev rules are installed to change file ownership). If this option is
used, the mbim-proxy will only allow connections from processes running by the
specified user or by the root user.
* Function error messages can now be returned by the MbimDevice as responses to
`Command', `Open' or `Close' messages. Users of the library should not assume
the type of message returned to the previous actions.
* The MbimProxy will monitor for 'NotOpened' errors, and when one detected it
will directly close the internal MbimDevice. Any subsequent request sent by
clients to that specific device will be aborted with a proxy-generated
'NotOpened' error. Clients will need to explicitly reopen the ports in that
case.
* The API now has a new mbim_message_response_get_result() method which allows
getting a GError from a message which may be of a specific type (e.g. a
`Command Done' message in response to a `Command' request) or instead the
generic `Function Error' message type. Users of the library can use this new
method to avoid assuming the type of message returned.
E.g. the following check:
mbim_message_command_done_get_result (response, &error);
Can be updated as:
mbim_message_response_get_result (response,
MBIM_MESSAGE_TYPE_COMMAND_DONE,
&error);
And the same logic can be applied to `Open' and `Close' messages.
* Other bugfixes and minor improvements:
** Attach timeout and idle events to the thread-default context.
** Fix bashisms in the mbim-network script.
Overview of changes in libmbim 1.10
----------------------------------------
* API break: Flag values in 'MbimRegistrationFlag' were updated to match the
ones in the MBIM documentation.
* Implemented a new 'mbim-proxy', which allows sharing a single MBIM control
port among different processes. The usage of the proxy is optional, and can
be requested by specifying the MBIM_DEVICE_OPEN_FLAGS_PROXY flag in the new
mbim_device_open_full() method. The 'mbimcli' command line tool was also
extended with a new '--device-open-proxy,-p' option, to allow requesting the
use of the proxy process.
* New 'removed' signal added to the MbimDevice, to notify when the underlying
connection to the device is lost (e.g. lost connection to the mbim-proxy, or
lost access to the MBIM control port).
* Added support for registering and using custom services.
* Added additional GMM cause codes to MbimNwError.
* Transactions are now matched not only by ID but also by type.
* Several other minor improvements and fixes.
Overview of changes in libmbim 1.8
