ANNOUNCE: folks 0.9.5

libfolks 0.9.5 is now available from:


libfolks 0.9.5 — Plan B is a dance routine!

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 0.9.x unstable series corresponds to GNOME 3.10, leading up to a
0.10.x stable series in the near future. We will continue to maintain
API and ABI stability for the foreseeable future, with the intention of
having 0.9.x API compatible back through 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.

  Clients should use the new IndividualAggregator.dup constructor to
  retrieve the default aggregator singleton. The default
  IndividualAggregator constructor and
  IndividualAggregator.with_backend_store are now deprecated.

libfolks depends upon core GNOME libraries (GLib, GIO, etc.), as well
as libgee 0.8.x.

The Tracker backend requires a recent version of Tracker, built to
include its Vala bindings.
