The "you rang?" release, starting a 0.12.x stable branch.

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.


Highlights since 0.10.x


• when the local user is removed from a Group Channel, the GError used to
  invalidate the TpChannel has changed

New features:

• the TpProxy "feature" (prepare_async) mechanism
• high-level bindings for ChatStates, ContactCapabilities, ContactInfo, Avatars,
  detailed connection errors, and Protocol objects
• TpAccountChannelRequest, a high-level channel-requesting mechanism
• TpBaseClient, a base class for Observers, Approvers and Handlers
• generated constants for contact attributes and handler capability tokens
• base classes for Channel and Protocol in connection managers
• TpWeakRef, a wrapper for a weak reference and optional extra pointer
• experimental GObject-Introspection bindings, requiring version 0.6.14 or later
• experimental Vala bindings, requiring GObject-Introspection 0.9.6 and Vala
  0.10.0 or later
• generated code for all stable APIs in telepathy-spec 0.20, apart from
  client code for Channel.Type.ServerTLSConnection (which will follow in 0.13.x)

Note that the GObject-Introspection and Vala bindings are not subject to the
same API guarantees as the C API, and are likely to have incompatible changes
during the 0.13.x series.

Changes since 0.11.16

• Disable documentation completeness checks and redirect documentation uploads
  for stable branch
• Add the version number, and a link to the latest version, to the documentation
• Increase dependencies for Vala bindings to versions that the libfolks
  developers have verified to work: gobject-introspection 0.9.6 and
  Vala 0.10.0
