• fd.o#23005: initial support for listing rooms. (Jonathon Jongsma)

  It would be better to have support for one of the extensions which
  lets you search rooms rather than getting the entire list from the
  server. If someone wants to work on adding this to Idle and Empathy,
  go for it!

• fd.o#24614: chat room channels now respawn if you Close() them. This
  means that if empathy-chat (or your friendly neighbourhood chat UI)
  crashes, it pops right back up with your channels in it, rather than
  you getting kicked out of all your channels.

  If your UI is using Close() to leave channels, you'll need to change
  it to use RemoveMembers with the SelfHandle property from the Group
  interface. empathy-chat has done this for literally years, and
  tp_channel_leave_async() in telepathy-glib and
  Tp::Channel::requestLeave in telepathy-qt4 do the right thing.


• fd.o#54016: fix for "make -j" safety (Dan Winship)

• fd.o#30741: sending well-formed but invalid UTF-8 no longer gets Idle
  kicked off the bus.

• fd.o#56589: Idle now disconnects if it doesn't get a reply to its pings after
  a while.

• fd.o#49163: don't wedge and stop sending messages in a situation we believe
  was triggered by a short-lived GIO bug.

Please now file a million bugs about how listing rooms on Freenode takes about a month and then pegs Empathy at 100% CPU for another month,
