Both have objects representing connections, proxies and method invocations. However there are some important differences: dbus-glib uses the D-Bus libdbus reference implementation, GDBus does not. Instead, it relies on GIO streams as transport layer, and has its own implementation for the the D-Bus connection setup and authentication. dbus-glib uses the GObject
