Update Information:

Bitlbee version 3.0.4 (released 2011-12-04):

  - Merged Skype support. This used to be a separate plugin, and it still is, but by including it with BitlBee by default it will be easier to keep it in sync with changes to BitlBee
  - Fixed a file descriptor leak bug that may have caused strange behaviour in BitlBee sessions running for a long time
  - Now fetches Twitter mentions as well if the "fetch_mentions" account setting is enabled
  - With t.co now all over Twitter, show the original (but truncated) URL between <brackets>
  - Fixed MSN Messenger login issues ("timeout" while fetching buddy list)
  - Another (related) GnuTLS compatibility fix (now 2.13+?)
