Description Li Yuan 2009-12-17 18:00:39 UTC
From the discussion of http://mail.gnome.org/archives/gnome-accessibility-devel/2009-December/msg00007.html, children-changed signals should be emitted by atk-adaptor.
Comment 1 Mark Doffman 2010-01-14 03:58:10 UTC
Alongside the leasing scheme the signal emission for "children-changed" has been modified. The ATK adaptor now emits children-changed signals and the client side cache uses these signals for its update.

This was introduced in commit 338e58d49bf2c1fd99591 and is available starting in the 0.1.5 release.
Comment 2 Mark Doffman 2010-01-24 07:45:09 UTC
Children-changed signals are now sent instead of 'fake' signals in all cases.

When applications are added or removed a children-changed event is sent from the registry.
