Hi,

Here is a brown paper bag release to fix issues introduced by yesterday’s
(2.4.9)
release.

– Fix issues introduced by last release 2.4.9:
– a crash on startup.
– Revert the new desktop ID detection code as that turned out to not work
for
non-root user that geoclue is supposed to be run as.
– Use systemd’s service file to lockdown the geoclue daemon to stop eventual
security problems.

Geoclue is a D-Bus service that provides location information. The
primary goal of the Geoclue project is to make creating location-aware
applications as simple as possible, while the secondary goal is to
ensure that no application can access location information without
explicit permission from user.

Geoclue is Free Software, licensed under GNU GPLv2+. It is developed for
Linux.

The aim of project is to utilize all possible sources of geolocation
to best find user’s location:

* WiFi-based geolocation (accuracy: in meters)
* GPS(A) receivers (accuracy: in centimeters)
* GPS of other devices on the local network, e.g smartphones
(accuracy: in centimeters)
* 3G modems (accuracy: in kilometers, unless modem has GPS)
* GeoIP (accuracy: city-level)

Geoclue used to also do (reverse-)geocoding but that functionality has
been dropped in favor of geocode-glib library.
