The "Back in the old days, we didn't have plural" release.

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.

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

Highlights since 5.4.x

• MC implements features from telepathy-spec 0.20, including:
  · channels can be dispatched before a connection is CONNECTED, which is
    required for telepathy-gabble ≥ 0.9.17
  · the Account.ConnectionError property indicating the last error
  · the Account.ChangingPresence property indicating that presence changes
    are in progress
  · the Account.Service property indicating where an account is stored
  · ChannelDispatchOperation.HandleWithTime to set focus-stealing-prevention

• libmission-control-plugins provides a more stable plugin API for MC. Plugins
  written with this library can:
  · observe, delay and influence channel dispatching, much like Observers
  · observe, delay and/or reject channel requests
  · store accounts elsewhere

• Bugfixes include:
  · tries harder to invoke the same handler for an already-handled channel
  · calls ended locally with reason No_Answer are treated as missed
  · fewer writes to gnome-keyring when committing changes
  · in-band XMPP account creation works better

Fixes since 5.5.4

• Fix various build warnings in the tests (Vincent Untz, smcv)
• Fix a build warning when keyring support is disabled (fledermaus)
• Install a missing header file (fledermaus)
