libfolks 0.7.0 — Another name crossed off the list

Libfolks pulls together contacts from any number of accounts supported
by the libfolks backends. This release includes a number of backends,
including Telepathy, evolution-data-server, libsocialweb, Tracker, and
a simple key-file backend.

The 0.7.x unstable series corresponds to GNOME 3.6, leading up to a
0.8.x stable series when GNOME 3.6 is released. We will continue to
maintain API and ABI stability for the foreseeable future, with the
intention of having 0.8.x API compatible with 0.6.x. We will make an
announcement when we officially commit to API/ABI stability for the
project as a whole.

See the NEWS file for details on every break we made before 0.6.0. In
future releases, we will have example programs that will be kept
up-to-date with the latest API as well.
