  6. ## 2022-10-15 1.6.1
  7. Absolutely make sure that all clients of the session are closed when closing the session.
  8. This solves the invisible, hidden clients still running even after nsmd quit itself.
  9. Decrease wait time for such clients at session quit from extreme 60s to very long 30s.
  10. For lockfiles fall back to hardcoded /run/user/<user-id> when $XDG_RUNTIME_DIR is not available on the system.
  11. ## 2022-04-15 1.6.0
  12. nsmd:
  13. Now follows the XDG Base Directory Specifications.
  14. Default session directory moved from ~/NSM Sessions/ to $XDG_DATA_HOME/nsm/ (see issue #gh-15)
  15. The old path ~/NSM Sessions/ is still supported and has priority, for now. This may be switched off in the future.
  16. Lockfiles fixed (see issue #gh-31)
  17. Lockfiles are now in $XDG_RUNTIME_DIR/nsm/
  18. Lockfiles now each contain the session path, the osc NSM_URL and the nsmd PID
  19. One daemon file for each currently running nsmd is created in $XDG_RUNTIME_DIR/nsm/d/ containing the osc url. This enables discovery of running daemons.
  20. New section in the API documentation for the above.
  21. Handle write-protected session files and related errors on save. They will not crash the daemon anymore.
  22. Fixes and guards against trying to load non-existing sessions and creating new sessions under existing names
  23. Handle various crashes-on-exit and replace them with controlled exits.
  24. Jackpatch Version 1.0.0 (previously 0.2.0):
  25. Jackpatch will finally not "forget" connections anymore. See #gh-74
  26. Reduce verbosity level of log ouput.
  27. Document 'hidden' standalone (no NSM) command line mode in --help
  28. Handle SIGNALs even when in standalone mode
  29. Add a jackpatch desktop file with X-NSM-Capable=true and X-NSM-Exec=jackpatch and NoDisplay=true
  30. NSM-Proxy:
