New in version 3.0.1 (November 25th, 2010)
- Mostly bug fixes, not a lot of new stuff.
New in version 3.0 (October 22nd, 2010)
- Lots of stuff, see the development version below.
- MSN protocol module was rewritten. This fixes some problems many people were having with the old code lately, and adds support for things like status messages and offline messages.
- The bitlbee-otr branch is now merged into mainline, which means you can compile BitlBee with OTR encryption support, if you want, without any need for patches/alternative branches.
- Many more fixes, small changes, etc. Just read the full non-bzr changelog for all details.
New in version 1.3 (August 7th, 2010)
- Too much to mention here, see the Wiki and doc/CHANGES for more details.
- IRC core completely rewritten. This adds support for multiple configurable control channels (for example one channel per group, one per IM account/protocol, a channel with just your offline contacts), easier groupchat support, more flexibility in how nicknames are generated, and finally you can easily change your nickname whenever you want.
- The ability to use libpurple instead of the built-in code. This adds support for more IM protocols and more features. Possibly less stable and lightweight, so by default the built-in code will still be used.
- Support for file transfers.
