New Feature

This introduces a very experimental D-Bus interface to Shairport Sync. At present, in a very ad-hoc trial arrangement, Shairport Sync provides a system bus D-Bus service enabling a program to get and set Volume, to enable and disable the Loundness Filter and to get and set the Loundness Filter threshold (remember, BTW, the Loudness filter only works with software-based volume control). Please note that the implementation is likely to change greatly or be removed at any time. Tested on Ubuntu 16.04 and on Raspbian Stretch.
Two extra configuration options are provided: --with-dbus and --with-dbus-test-client. (BTW, the test client is never installed, merely compiled.)

Bug Fix

  • Fixed a bug that prevented Shairport Sync from starting automatically on systems using the System V startup system (e.g. Ubuntu 14.04). The problem was that the directory to be used – /var/run/shairport-sync/ – was deleted on power down and needed to be recreated on startup. In it's absence, Shairport Sync would not start and would report a mysterious daemon error #2.
