PolicyKit release

Late last night I finally made a PolicyKit release. It’s almost ready for prime time; wait a month for 0.4 to get out and I should be able to maintain a stable API.

PolicyKit in action

With Richard’s great work on D-Bus system bus activation it looks like we’re soon going to have nice upstream frameworks for enabling the desktop to do privileged operations in a hopefully sane way. Instead of having each and every distribution on the planet write their own configuration tools. I, for one, really wants to see some effort of merging such things into upstream GNOME and KDE as far as possible.

Normally I’m not opposed to what our new web overlords are serving us; you know; social networks and the ability to see what past and present, uh, peers are up to… but sometimes it’s just TMI - Maybe I just need to use the Interwebs less :-)
