Here's telepathy-qt4 0.1.3, the "what are you scared of?" release.

The latest reviewed code is always available from:
http://git.collabora.co.uk/?p=telepathy-qt4.git (gitweb)


* Full regression tests now require telepathy-glib >= 0.7.28 (telepathy-glib
  is still optional)

API changes:

* Namespace simplification: Telepathy::Client::Channel (etc.) are now
  Tp::Channel, similar to telepathy-glib's TpChannel. Auto-generated client
  classes like Telepathy::Client::ChannelInterface are now

* AccountManager, Account, ConnectionManager, Connection, Channel and Channel
  subclasses now inherit from Tp::RefCounted and are used together with
  Tp::SharedPtr/Tp::WeakPtr, shared and weak pointer classes using ideas from
  Qt, glibmm, Boost and WebKit. The constructor is now protected (in order to
  support custom classes) and a public create method that returns a SharedPtr
  was added. This is an attempt to avoid memory leaks as much as possible, see
  http://lists.freedesktop.org/archives/telepathy/2009-March/003218.html for
  more details.

* Instead of forward-declaring Telepathy::Client::Channel and using
  a variable of type Telepathy::Client::Channel *, you should now include
  <TelepathyQt4/Types> and use either Tp::ChannelPtr, which is a
  reference-counted shared pointer, or Tp::WeakPtr<Tp::Channel>, which is the
  weak counterpart.
* Header simplification: the public headers now look like
  <TelepathyQt4/Channel>, i.e. without the Client subdirectory.

* PendingHandles now finish successfully on non fatal errors (InvalidArgument,
  InvalidHandle, NotAvailable). PendingHandles::invalidNames/invalidHandles
  should be used to check if a non-fatal error occurred and some handle could
  not be acquired.


* Updated to telepathy-spec 0.17.23

* TelepathyQt4Farsight is a new mini-library with glue code to connect
  telepathy-farsight to Telepathy-Qt4. Handlers for streamed media channels
  with media signalling can #include <TelepathyQt4/Farsight/Channel> and pass
  their Tp::StreamedMediaChannel to Tp::createFarsightChannel, then hook up
  the resulting TfChannel to a GStreamer pipeline of their choice.

* StreamedMediaChannel has a new handlerStreamingRequired method so you can
  check whether the handler needs to carry out the streaming

* fd.o #21336: Channels now indicate whether a message is expected when
  doing various Group operations

* fd.o #21337: Account supports the new HasBeenOnline property


* fd.o #20583: Contact objects don't work without the Contacts interface.

* fd.o #20584: Contact object creation doesn't survive bad IDs or handles.
