What's changed in AT-SPI2 1.91.5

* Fixed several memory leaks.

* Fixed some text methods, methods that return points or rectangles,
  image locale and description, atspi-accessible_get_description, and some
  table methods.

* Added a trailing colon for focus events.

* Set the error parameter for dbus errors rather than displaying a warning.

* Fixed the keystroke listener deregister method.

* The cache is now updated before raising an event, not after, so that event
  handlers that query for cached values will see the updated data.

* The registry daemon now returns an error when a caller requests a property
  that the desktop does not support.

* Added disposal of objects, and fixed several associated bugs.

* Added i18n.

* Fixed mouse events.

* Libatspi's documentation is now compiled with gtk-doc.

* Fixed building from a separate build directory.

* Atspi_state_set_contains no longer falsely reports that states are present.

* Fixed generateKeyboardEvent, description, and allModifiers.

* Added a dummy stateset.unref function for backwards compatibility.

* Added a pumpQueuedEvents stub.


* Hide children attribute since it is currently broken and caused a crash
  with Accerciser.

* Wrap event type so that sub-fields can be accessed.

* Fixed some memory leaks.

* Fixed a crash if peer-to-peer connections are disabled.

* Fixed setting of GTK_PATH with --enable-relocate (was broken in 1.91.4).

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.

technologies, improving performance, and generally tying up loose ends.
