92010-10-131.2.8Gökcen EraslanMass rebuild for Pardus 2011 Beta
82010-07-051.2.8H. İbrahim GüngörVersion bump:
- Now always using the AIM-style authentication method for OSCAR connections,
even when connecting to ICQ. This solves login issues some people were
having. (If you have problems, try changing the old_icq_auth setting.)
- Twitter:
* Allow changing the Twitter API base URL so the module can also be used
for or any other compatible network.
* Fetch the full list of Twitter contacts instead of slowly adding all
contacts as they post a message.
* Fixed message length counting.
* Allow following/unfollowing people using the usual add/remove commands.
* Better error reporting.
- Added a user_agent setting to the Jabber module to get around artificial
client restrictions.
- Allow nick changes (although only before register/identify).
- Some more minor bugfixes/etc.
72010-06-151.2.7H. İbrahim GüngörFix permission of bitlbee.conf.

- Fixed problems with MSN Messenger authentication. ("Could not parse
Passport server response")
- Fixed broken typing notifications when talking to GTalk contacts.
- Fixed an issue with non-anonymous Jabber chatrooms polluting the nick
namespace, sometimes generating odd warning messages.
- Restored ability to start groupchats on ICQ.
- Added show_offline setting that will also show offline contacts in the
control channel.
- OAuth support for Twitter: This means the module will keep working after
June (this also changes "via API" under your tweets into "via BitlBee").

42010-03-171.2.5H. İbrahim GüngörFull support for status messages and better support for Facebook chat.
32010-02-271.2.4H. İbrahim GüngörVersion bump, add our message of the day file. Upstream log:
- Most important change (and main reason for releasing now): Upgraded Yahoo!
module to a newer version to get it working again.
- join_chat command replaced with the much better chat command:
* Similar to how account replaced login/slist/logout. Add a chatroom once,
then just /join it like any other room. Also automatic joining at login
time is now possible.
* Note that the old way of starting groupchats (/join #nickname) is now
also deprecated, use "chat with" instead.
* See "help chat" and "help chat add" for more information.
- Rewrote bitlbee.conf parser to be less dumb.
- Fixed compatibility (hopefully) with AIM mobile messages, certain kinds
of Google Talk chatrooms.
- Fixed numerous stability/reliability bugs over the last year.
