New stable API:

* fd.o #13350: ContactInfo is now considered stable. Changes since the draft
  seen in 0.18:

  - the summary explains how to use ContactInfo without causing lots of
    network traffic
  - GetContactInfo no longer re-fetches from the server, so clients can
    call it as often as they need to
  - a new RefreshContactInfo method can be used occasionally to refresh
    cached contact info
  - the Contact_Info_Flag type is now called Contact_Info_Flags
  - the examples have been extended
  - Parameters_Mandatory is now called Parameters_Exact


* fd.o #24768: Observers can have a Recover flag, which causes the
  channel dispatcher to restart them if they crash, and provides a best-effort
  way to catch up on existing channels (ptlo)

Corrections and clarifications:

* fd.o #27200: MailNotification.UnreadMails may have fewer than
  UnreadMailCount messages (for instance, Google Talk limits to 30 threads)
