libfolks 0.2.1 is now available for download from:




libfolks 0.2.1 — The Wrath of Doug
Libfolks pulls together contacts from any number of accounts supported
by the libfolks backends. This release includes a Telepathy backend
complete enough to power Empathy and a key file backend to allow contact
linking. We would like to include additional backends
(especially evolution-data-server), so let us know if we can help!

This release should be the last in the stable 0.2.x series, meant to
coincide with Gnome 2.32.1.

Any new projects should be developed against the 0.3.x series as it adds
new features and is API-/ABI-incompatible with the 0.2.x series.

For more information, see the Folks wiki page:

What's new?

Bugs fixed:
* Bug 629642 — individuals-changed emitted in the wrong order
* Bug 631864 — Crash when empathy disconnects
* Bug 632564 — assertion `EMPATHY_IS_CONTACT (contact)' failed in
* Bug 632163 — Folks key-file backend needs a way to point to a specific
  .ini file

libfolks and its backends depend upon core GNOME libraries (GLib, GIO,
etc.), as well as the recent releases of Vala and gobject-introspection.

The Telepathy backend also requires a recent release of telepathy-glib,
built to include its Vala bindings.

For any questions, comments, feature proposals, etc., please refer to
the Telepathy mailing list or #telepathy on Freenode.
For bug reports, please file them with the GNOME Bugzilla module "folks"
