* Mon Feb 27 2017
- Version update to 3.5.1:
  * purple:
    Fix crash on file transfer requests from unknown contacts.
    This was the result of an incomplete fix in the previous
    release and may result in remote DoS. Read the full security
    advisory at:
  * After some investigation we decided to reclassify a crash fix
    from the previous release as a security issue. Read the full security
    advisory at:
  * Included help.txt in the release tarball, which was missing in
    the previous release and resulted in adding python as a build
    dependency. The release tarball of 3.5.1 does not require python.
* Tue Jan 24 2017
- Version update to 3.5:
  * ui:
    "chat list": shows a list of existing server-side chatrooms.
    With some protocols, this is often the only way to add new channels.
    See 'help chat list' for details.
    "plugins": lists the installed plugins and their versions
    Add 'nick_lowercase' and 'nick_underscores' settings.
    "handle_unknown" can be set per-account, not just globally
  * jabber:
    Add "always_use_nicks" channel setting, for non-anonymous MUCs (trac #415)
    See 'help set always_use_nicks' for possible side effects.
    Properly handle rejected file transfers
    Don't send parts in a chat if someone is still connected from other devices
    hipchat: support personal oauth tokens (manually generated ones)
  * twitter:
    Hide muted tweets / no-retweets, add mute/unmute commands
    Show full version of extended tweets (with slightly more than 140 chars)
  * purple:
    Support setting chat room topics
    Support for extra groupchat settings. Shows an error if any required ones are missing.
    Look for purple_ prefixed settings in "chan #... set"
    SIPE: persistent chats can be joined now, thanks to the "chat list" command
    and the above ("purple_uri" channel setting)
    Fix a file transfer crash bug (Mainly affected telegram)
    Honor protocol flag to not require a password (used in hangouts, telegram)
    Set the contacts' nicks to the %full_name for a few whitelisted protocols (hangouts, funyahoo, icq, line)
    LINE: added a hack to save its auth token, to avoid re-auth every time
    Show self-messages in groupchat backlogs (before join)
  * yahoo:
    Removed because they killed their old protocol on a two month notice.
    Use EionRobb's funyahoo purple plugin, or better yet, don't use yahoo.
  * Stuff for enterprise deployments:
    Locked down accounts, useful when pregenerating user config files.
    An account that is marked with the locked="true" attribute can't be removed
    and its username/password can't be changed.
    Locked down settings. Same as above, but for individual account settings.
    AllowAccountAdd setting in bitlbee.conf, to disable adding new accounts.
    PAM and LDAP authentication backends (not compiled by default)
  * For packagers:
    Enabled debug symbols in non-debug builds, disabled stripping by default.
    This is closer to the default behavior of autotools,
    and --debug=1 is mostly to set the DEBUG macro and disable optimization.
  * For plugin devs:
    Plugins should now include an "init_plugin_info" function which will be used
    for ABI version checking in the future.
    It's optional for now, but will be enforced later.

  * bitlbee-facebook instead. SASL ANONYMOUS login, see help set anonymous.
  * hipchat: Channels can now be added with chat add hipchat "channel name" which
    tries to guess the channel JID. Read more
  * skype: Show all messages as groupchats since we can't tell which ones are
