D-Bus 1.8.0

A message bus system that provides a simple way for applications to talk to one another
D-Bus is an open source command-line software, a daemon that acts as a message bus system. It is heavily used in modern Linux distributions to allow applications to talk to one another.

D-Bus is also designed to help you coordinate process lifecycle, by making it reliable and simple to write a daemon or a "single instance" application.

The project is comprised of a system daemon that takes care of events like "printer queue changed" or "new hardware device added," and  a per-user-login-session daemon, which is mostly used for general IPC tasks.

Various re-implementations of the D-Bus protocol were created during the past several years, for languages like Java, Ruby, and C#. However, they don't use the libdbus reference implementation.
