Pyatspi:
          * Fix excessive CPU usage, continuously running idle function.

          * Use of new 'Accessibility' D-Bus bus. The bus address
            is located using X properties.

          * Added collection support.

          * Add compile time option to enable participation in Gnome
            session management.

          * Use the new 'Accessibility' bus if the bus address
            is available on the X property AT_SPI_BUS.

          * Add the configuration and start up scripts for the new
            'Accessibility' D-Bus bus.

Atk:
          * Use the new 'Accessibility' bus if the bus address is 
            available in the AT_SPI_BUS X property.

          * Use datarootdir for finding the introspection XML files. 
            They are now in a shared directory under 'at-spi2'.

	  * Only set parent to the desktop if an accessible is an  
            Application.

          * Send an UpdateAccessible signal if a Transient object is 
            registered.

          * Finish collections API support.


What is AT-SPI2
===============

AT-SPI2 is a D-Bus based accessibility framework. It defines a D-Bus
protocol for providing and accessing application accessibility
information. The project includes a library for bridging the D-Bus
protocol to the ATK API, allowing Gtk based applications to be made
accessible. It also contains a client (AT) side library in Python.
