The second revision to the Linux kernel based D-Bus implementation is now available for review. Greg Kroah-Hartman on Thursday night posted the "v2" revision of the KDBUS implementation for providing the kernel with a new IPC implementation that resembles the existing user-space D-Bus daemon while adding extra features.
