telepathy-spec 0.17.9, the "-otron" release.

The latest release is available from:
(although we plan to move the version control to git soon).

For packagers (e.g. http://packages.debian.org/telepathy-spec):
tar: http://telepathy.freedesktop.org/releases/telepathy-spec/telepathy-spec-0.17.9.tar.gz
sig: http://telepathy.freedesktop.org/releases/telepathy-spec/telepathy-spec-0.17.9.tar.gz.asc

API changes:

* The special behaviour of the self handle in GetKnownAvatarTokens has been
  changed to match what's actually been implemented; the spec now explains
  under what circumstances clients (or the account manager) should reset the

New API:

* Connection.Interface.Aliasing.GetAliases is like RequestAliases but returns
  immediately, rather than waiting for network round-trips to complete

* Connection.Interface.Contacts (also known as "the inspectotron") allows
  retrieval of various contact attributes, and optionally holding the handles,
  in a single D-Bus round-trip. (Methods and properties have been renamed
  since the draft version, but it's basically the same)

New experimental API:

* The ChannelBundle interface is a new concept: an object path that relates
  a bundle of related channels, and remains in existence as long as any
  channel in the bundle exists

* The Requests interface ("the requestotron") is intended to replace
  RequestChannel when it's ready: it allows channels to be created by
  specifying an extensible hash table of D-Bus properties, rather than just
  a channel type and a handle
