Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7.5 adds a feature that enables users to launch
dbus-using applications remotely, for example over SSH or over IBM Platform LSF.
However, when processes using
dbus are launched remotely,
dbus processes keep running even after the main process is closed, blocking the remote session and preventing it from terminating properly.
dbus rebased to version 1.10
The dbus packages have been upgraded to upstream version 1.10, which provides a number of bug fixes and enhancements over the previous version. Notable changes include:
dbus-run-session is a new utility to run a
dbus session bus for the runtime of a login session, making
ssh sessions which start dbus-using applications more predictable and reliable. See
man 1 dbus-run-session for more details.
Several memory and file descriptor leaks have been fixed. This improves the
dbus-daemon memory usage and reliability.
The well-known system and session bus configuration files have been moved from
directory. While the old location can still be used, it is deprecated (specifically,
are deprecated, but system administrator configuration snippets under

SNMP page counting can be now disabled in CUPS
The simple network management protocol (SNMP) page counting currently shows incorrect information for certain printers. With this update, the CUPS printing system supports turning off the SNMP page counting, which prevents the problem. To do so, add
*cupsSNMPPages: False into the printer's postscript printer description (PPD) file.
CUPS can be set to use only ciphers from TLS version 1.2 or later
The CUPS printing system can now be set to use only ciphers from TLS version 1.2 or later. You can use the functionality by adding the option
SSLOptions MinTLS1.2 into the
/etc/cups/client.conf file for the CUPS client or into the
/etc/cups/cupsd.conf file for the CUPS daemon. (BZ#1466497)

It adds support for the IPMI LAN Interface configuration file. See the ipmi_lan(5) man page. (BZ#1457805)
Overview of changes from freeIPMI 1.2.9 to freeIPMI 1.5.7
These are the most important changes:
ipmi-fru tool now supports the output of the DDR3 and DDR4 SDRAM modules and new FRU multirecords. - The new
ipmi-config tool is a consolidated configuration tool implementing all the functionalities that were previously in the
ipmi-chassis-config tools. - The
ipmi-sel tool reads and manages the IPMI System Event Log records, which makes the tool useful for debugging the system.

clear_env option available in PHP FPM pool configuration
This update introduces a new
option in PHP's FastCGI Process Manager (FPM) pool configuration. If the
option is disabled, environment variables set when running the FPM daemon are preserved and available to scripts. By default,
is enabled, preserving current behavior. (BZ#1410010
