The “all these little strings” release.


This is a new stable branch, recommended for use with GNOME 3.10.

Fixes since 5.15.1:

• If a connection manager that stores avatars on the server is slow to
  discover whether we have a server-stored avatar, don't overwrite it
  with an outdated local avatar or lack-of-avatar. This was a regression
  in 5.15.0. (fd.o #69885, Simon)

Here is a summary of significant changes since the previous stable
branch, 5.14.x:


• GLib 2.32 is required
• The regression tests require Python 2.6
• ConnMan connectivity monitoring no longer requires special compilation
  options or extra libraries at compile time
• gnome-keyring support has been removed, use a ServerAuthentication
  handler instead


• When running under GNOME 3 or Unity, MC will attempt to enable
  connections' power-saving features while the session is idle;
  this is currently effective for Google Talk XMPP connections
• MC now uses GNetworkMonitor to monitor connectivity;
  NetworkManager integration, which supplements this, is still available
• New set_attribute(), set_parameter(), owns() methods for
  McpAccountStorage plugins
• telepathy-spec 0.27.1: emit PropertiesChanged for URISchemes


• Don't try to reconnect on SoftwareUpgradeRequired or ConnectionRefused
• McpAccountStorage::altered-one now works
