ABOUT:
-----

Eldbus provides easy access to D-Bus from EFL applications.

Eldbus allows connecting to both system and session buses acting as
both client and service roles.

Many official D-Bus specifications and interfaces are supported, namely:

        - org.freedesktop.DBus.Peer: full support (Ping and GetMachineId).
        - org.freedesktop.DBus.Introspectable: full support.
        - org.freedesktop.DBus.Properties: full support.
        - org.freedesktop.DBus.ObjectManager: partial support (under dev).

One can create client-side objects using the low-level methods from
Eldbus_Connection and Eldbus_Object, or go high level with
Eldbus_Proxy.


RELATION TO OLD E_DBUS:
-----------------------

This is a replacement for old library "e_dbus". Its main purpose is to
fix some core bugs and completely encapsulating D-Bus without exposing
libdbus to end-user. One day libdbus may be completely removed as a
dependency.


REQUIREMENTS:
-------------

        - libdbus-1
        - eina >= 1.7
        - ecore >= 1.7


CONTACT:
--------

Bugs, questions, ideas and comments should be addressed to:

        enlightenment-devel@lists.sourceforge.net



COMPILING AND INSTALLING:
-------------------------

Standard autotools process:

        ./autogen.sh    # if trying development
        ./configure     # if running from release tarball
        make
        sudo make install
