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 C and a wrapper
for Python.

What's changed in AT-SPI 2.1.3

* [core] use stored values for AT-SPI role names where possible.

* [core/atk] Fix for BGO#652596: Use DBus property to set/retrieve value.

* [core] Set error for some DBus errors where this was not being done.

* [core] Add atspi_accessible_get_process_id (as a short-cut to help debugging).

* [core] Fix failure to update cache in response to children-changed events in
  some cases.

* [atk] Fix for BGO#652797: Remove unused AtkMisc instance.

* [atk] Only register events when something is listening.  In theory, this
  should mitigate performance loss that might show up when no ATs are running.

* [atk] BGO#652858: Deregister objects on state-changed:defunct.

* [atk] Add AT-SPI mapping for ATK_RELATION_NODE_PARENT_OF.

* [pyatspi] BGO#644393: Remove document:content-changed from EVENT_TREE
