Here's MC 5.4.0, the "coffee made without human interaction" release.

The 5.4.x branch is a new stable branch, starting from the last development
release (5.3.2). It provides backported fixes for various bugs, but does not
contain all of the features that have been added to the master branch,
and is intended to be suitable for distributions. The next development release
from the master branch will be 5.5.0.

Mission Control is an account manager and channel dispatcher for the Telepathy
framework, allowing user interfaces and other clients to share connections to
real-time communication services without conflicting. It implements the
AccountManager and ChannelDispatcher D-Bus APIs defined by telepathy-spec.

* fd.o #27309: implement the Observer.Recover flag from the forthcoming
  telepathy-spec 0.19.4, which lets activatable observers recover (in a
  best-effort way) after crashing, and lets non-activatable observers catch
  up on active channels (again in a best-effort way) (ptlo)


* fd.o #24875: avoid a dependency on GLib >= 2.22 which was accidentally
  introduced in 5.3.2 (smcv)

* Avoid a dependency on dbus-glib 0.80 (Danni)

* fd.o #25122, Debian #556488: link mc-wait-for-name to GLib properly (Jonny)

* mc-tool: don't crash on invalid account names (wjt)

* Only time out channel requests after 5 hours (Sjoerd)

* Remove a misleading reference to GConf (Tomeu)

* fd.o #27021: fix error propagation when creating accounts with invalid
  properties/parameters (Tomeu)

* Release startup locks even for incomplete accounts, avoiding failure to start
