The "we demand additional lumber" release, starting the 0.10.x stable branch.

Distribution packagers: please note the GNUTLS and telepathy-mission-control
requirements under "Compatibility notes" below. The GNUTLS part has been the
case since 0.9.0, and the Mission Control part since 0.9.17.

Highlights since 0.8.x

Gabble no longer uses Loudmouth for XMPP; instead, it contains a snapshot of
Wocky, a new XMPP library based on GIO. Wocky will be split into a fully
independent project when it reaches API stability.

New features and significant bugfixes include:

• Jingle calls now interoperate with Pidgin, Gajim, and XEP-0100 SIP gateways
• file transfers now interoperate with the Google Talk desktop client
• support for Google Talk PMUC chatrooms
• contact information (vCards) on servers supporting XEP-0054
• searching for contacts on servers supporting XEP-0055
• improved capability-discovery support (ContactCapabilities)
• compile-time selection of GNUTLS or OpenSSL for SSL support
• support for JIDs with non-ASCII domains
• experimental support for plugins
• experimental support for multi-user Jingle calls (Muji)
• compilation on Unix platforms other than Linux should now work

Compatibility notes

• telepathy-glib 0.11.16, GLib 2.24, libxml 2, SQLite 3, libnice 0.0.11,
  libsoup and libuuid are required.

• libsasl 2 is optional.

• Either GNUTLS >= 2.8.2 or OpenSSL >= 0.9.8g is also required.

• At the time of release, GNUTLS 2.8 is recommended. For versions 2.10.0 and
  2.10.1, some fixes need to be backported from 2.11.1 to fix connection
  failures with "-59: GNUTLS_E_INTERNAL_ERROR" in the debug log; we're
  tracking this as <https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=29364>.

• If you use telepathy-mission-control, version 5.5.0 or later is required.
  A 5.6.x stable branch suitable for this will be released soon. Packagers,
  please make Gabble conflict with Mission Control < 5.5.0 (e.g. the
  Breaks or Conflicts relationships in dpkg), or if that's not possible in your
  packaging system, depend on Mission Control >= 5.5.0.

Changes since 0.9.18

• Fix a crash if the connection closes while verifying a TLS certificate (wjt)
• Allow an in-progress connection to the server to be cancelled with
  Disconnect (cosimoc)
• Add regression tests for TLS certificate verification (cosimoc)
