SYSTEMD --
With still no sign of BUS1 on the horizon for the mainline kernel or any other successor to BUS1 or KDBUS for in-kernel IPC, Dbus-Broker remains the best bet currently in 2021 for a more performant D-Bus implementation while retaining compatibility with the D-Bus reference implementation.

Dbus-Broker continues evolving as the high performance D-Bus message broker developed by many of the same BUS1 and systemd developers from Red Hat. Red Hat's David Rheinsberg today released Dbus-Broker 28 as the newest version of the message broker. With version 28 there are improvements to service activation tracking to better deal with units in systemd and address some race conditions. The rest of the Dbus-Broker 28 work largely comes down to fixes around a possible crash issue, clearing the ambient capability set to harden against possible exploits, and other general bug fixes.

More details on Dbus-Broker 28 are available via the project's repository at GitHub.
