ANNOUNCE: folks 0.9.2

libfolks 0.9.2 is now available for download from:


libfolks 0.9.2 — Serpentine, Babou!

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 3.8, leading up to a
0.10.x stable series when GNOME 3.8 is released. 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.

Overview of changes from libfolks 0.9.1 to libfolks 0.9.2

• libebook-1.2 ≥ 3.8.1
• libebook-contacts-1.2 ≥ 3.8.1

Major changes:
• folks-import and folks-inspect now look for translated strings in
  ${localedir}, typically /usr/share/locale, which is also where the
  translations are installed. They previously looked in
  ${pkgdatadir}/locale, which is typically /usr/share/folks/locale and
  does not usually exist or contain anything.

Bugs fixed:
• Bug 693333 - eds: creating a contact with specific groups and
  fix "favourite" group setting for Android
• Bug 694883 - srcdir != builddir (out-of-tree) builds don't work
• Bug 695628 - assigns to VALAFLAGS which is reserved for the user
• Bug 695648 - Utils: add a fast-path for empty sets and multimaps
• Bug 695719 - lsw dummy test intermittently segfaults
  environment variables (see HACKING)

• Bug 682903 (partially) - Use gee's MultiMap iterators

• Bug 700253 - EDS backend initialization blocks

API changes:
• Add LocationDetails interface to specify a Persona or Individual's
  geographical location (implemented by the EDS backend)


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.
