libfolks 0.8.0 — GNOME 3.6!

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 0.8.x stable series corresponds to GNOME 3.6. We will continue to
maintain API and ABI stability for the foreseeable future, with 0.8.x
guaranteed to be 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.

The Telepathy backend also requires a recent release of telepathy-glib,
built to include its Vala bindings. It also requires libzeitgeist,
built to include its Vala bindings.

The EDS backend also requires a recent release of evolution-data-server,
built to include its Vala bindings.

The Tracker backend requires a recent version of Tracker, built to
