The "also, hi from bl.uk" release.

Please note that as with the previous version, building documentation for
this version requires gtk-doc 1.15 or a patched version of 1.14.

telepathy-glib is the GObject binding for the Telepathy real-time communication
framework, which can be used to implement user interfaces, connection managers
(protocol backends), and other Telepathy components.

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

API changes:

⌬ fd.o #23369: when the local user is removed from a Group Channel, the
  GError with which the TpChannel is invalidated has changed:

  → if possible, the detailed error name from D-Bus is mapped to a TpError,
    or a custom GError domain set up with tp_proxy_subclass_add_error_mapping
  → otherwise, the TpChannelGroupChangeReason is translated into a TpError

  Previously, we used an error from the TP_ERRORS_REMOVED_FROM_GROUP domain
  in most cases; this domain is no longer used, unless we get a change reason
  that isn't recognised.


⌬ fd.o #25236: TpBaseClient, a base class for Observers and Approvers, which
  will also support Handlers in a future release (cassidy)

⌬ fd.o #27871, #24214: TpSimpleObserver, a simple TpBaseClient subclass for
  projects that don't need their own subclass, and an example Observer that
  uses it (cassidy)

⌬ fd.o #27875: TpSimpleApprover, a simple TpBaseClient subclass for
  projects that don't need their own subclass, and an example Approver that
  uses it (cassidy)

⌬ fd.o #27899: internal macros for ERROR(), CRITICAL() etc., analogous to
  DEBUG() (jonny)

⌬ fd.o #23369: improve the errors with which a Group TpChannel is invalidated
  if we're removed, as per "API changes" above (smcv)

⌬ fd.o #18055: generate GEnum types for TpCMInfoSource, TpContactFeature,
  TpDBusError, and GFlags types for TpDBusNameType and
  TpDBusPropertiesMixinFlags. Note that TpConnectionManager:info-source is
  still of type G_TYPE_UINT, not TP_TYPE_CM_INFO_SOURCE, since switching it
  would be an ABI break. (danni, smcv)


⌬ fd.o #26211: correct the generated constants for contact attributes and
  handler capability tokens, which were present-but-wrong since 0.11.3 (smcv)

⌬ fd.o #24689: document more clearly that the TpConnectionManager.protocols
  struct member can be reallocated (smcv)

⌬ fd.o #28043: explicitly link tests/* against dbus-glib, fixing compilation
  with GNU gold, with GNU ld with LDFLAGS=-Wl,--no-add-needed, and hopefully
  also with Fedora 13's patched GNU ld (see Red Hat #564245) (smcv)

⌬ some fixes to GObject-Introspection metadata (danni)
