tarball: http://telepathy.freedesktop.org/releases/telepathy-spec/telepathy-spec-0.19.8.tar.gz
signature: http://telepathy.freedesktop.org/releases/telepathy-spec/telepathy-spec-0.19.8.tar.gz.asc

New stable API:

✑ fd.o #28197: Account.Interface.Storage, providing extra information regarding
  the storage backend for a particular account (eeejay)

✑ fd.o #24910: Conn.I.Cellular, extra information about cellular connections
  (compatible with draft 1, with the addition of the MessageReducedCharacterSet
  property) (wjt)

✑ fd.o #28812: Account.Service, a property containing the name of a service —
  such as "google-talk" — to provide more specific information on the nature of
  the account than just the protocol (wjt)

✑ Rationale blocks are now collapsible, if your browser supports Javascript,
  which makes the spec easier to read if you don't care about them (wjt)

✑ A new string typedef, Protocol_Content_Identifier, has been added to refer to
  the strings used for the 'identifier' field in message body parts (wjt)

✑ Arrays of Protocol_Message_Token are now specified as being possible (wjt)


✑ Conn.I.Capabilities is deprecated: use Conn.I.ContactCapabilities instead.
  CMs implementing Capabilities must now also implement ContactCapabilities.

New experimental API:

✑ Protocol: new objects on a ConnectionManager, with parameter details and
  other information (smcv)

Changes to experimental API:

✑ Conn.I.ContactList: update to draft 2 (smcv)
  ✒ rename GetContactListAttributes to RequestContactList


✑ Messages: improve layout and clarity, and add more tp:simple-type types

✑ ConnectionStatus, ConnectionStatusReason: add tp:type annotations (wjt)
