Version     : 1.2.4
Release     : 1.fc10
URL         : http://www.bitlbee.org/
Summary     : IRC to other chat networks gateway
Description :
Bitlbee is an IRC to other chat networks gateway. Bitlbee can be used as
an IRC server which forwards everything you say to people on other chat
networks like ICQ, MSN, Jabber or Yahoo!

Update Information:

Upstream changes for BitlBee 1.2.4:  - 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.
