John: While this release took what seems like forever to get out the
door, I think it's well worth the wait, especially for Yahoo! users.
This release serves up some fixes for long standing bugs and adds
file transfer for transfers with newer Yahoo! clients (finally!). As
is standard with code I committed, where it works great thank the
patch writer, and where it's broken, feel free to yell at me. Enjoy!
Sadrul: Finch is more colourful and blinky in this release! There's
now a log viewer, which is very useful, and also the ability to
block/unblock buddies. It's now also possible to find chat rooms on
many services, e.g. XMPP, IRC, Yahoo! etc. Happy Leap Day!
Ka-Hing: I think all I've done for this release is committing some
patches written by other people.
Stu: Finally, 2.4.0 lands. I didn't do all that much except complain
about things I didn't like or just revert Sean's changes. I'm quite
pleased with how well it's turned out in the end.
Happy Birthday Fred, you must be nearly 10 now ;-)
