The “less resplendent backup ruffs” release. This includes the fixes
from telepathy-gabble 0.16.5, including fixing a remotely-triggered
denial-of-service bug. You should upgrade to this version if you are
already running the 0.17 development branch; you should upgrade to
0.16.5 if you want a stable release.

• fd.o#57521: don't crash when the server sends back malformed or error
  replies to privacy list queries. (wjt)

• fd.o#61433: don't crash on weirdly-shaped data forms in caps query
  replies. This issue is tracked as CVE-2013-1769. Unfortunately, this
  bug can be triggered by any XMPP user who knows your bare JID, not
  just by people you've authorized to see your presence. Fortunately, it
  is just a NULL pointer dereference, rather than allowing the attacker
  to do anything more nefarious like execute code. (wjt)

• fd.o#43166: handle rate-limiting by MUCs better, including disabling
  typing notifications if we get rate-limited, and including the error
  message from the server in the D-Bus signal so that the user interface
  could, in principle, show it to the user. (wjt)


• fd.o#58198: the Jingle protocol code now lives in Wocky. This should make no
  functional difference to Gabble. (wjt)
