Libfolks pulls together contacts from any number of accounts supported
by the libfolks backends. This release includes a number of backends,
including Telepathy, evolution-data-server, libsocialweb, Tracker, and
a simple key-file backend. 

The 0.6.x series is API and ABI stable and corresponds to the Gnome 3.2
release. We will continue in the 0.6.x for the foreseeable future,
until we need to make further API or ABI breaks (which we don't
anticipate at this time). We will make an announcement when we
officially commit to API/ABI-stability for the project as a whole.

See the NEWS file for details on every break we made. In future
releases, we will have example programs that will be kept up-to-date
with the latest API as well.
