That’s right, in order to support the upcomming release of GNOME 3.0 which is introducing a new tabbed interface, we’ve totally made D-Bus HIG compliant by adding tabs to the API. No longer do you have to select a system or session bus while connecting. Now all you have to do is select the correct tab and you are connected. Now you might be saying, I can’t see these tabs. Because of constraints of the D-Bus system, namely not having a GUI, we had to add virtual tabs. Don’t worry, they are there, you just have to randomly click and eventually you will select the right bus. Or you can simply use the new D-Bus Gtk+ bindings which exist to provide a GUI in which to display the tabs. A word of warning though, because of Qt4’s abstraction layers when using the D-Bus Qt4 library they will show up as plasmoids. We here at Freedesktop.org hopes this makes your D-Bus hacking a much more enjoyable experience.[read this post in: ar de es fr it ja ko pt ru zh-CN ]
