Version     : 1.2.1
Release     : 1.fc8
URL         : http://www.bitlbee.org/
Summary     : IRC to other chat networks gateway
Description :
Bitlbee is an IRC to other chat networks gateway. Bitlbee can be used as
an IRC server which forwards everything you say to people on other chat
networks like ICQ, MSN, Jabber or Yahoo!

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Update Information:

As per BitlBee upstream, the following fixes and changes were done for BitlBee
1.2.1:    - Fixed proxy support.  - Fixed stalling issues while connecting to
Jabber when using the OpenSSL module.  - Fixed problem with GLib and ForkDaemon
where processes didn't die when the client disconnects.  - Fixed handling of
"set charset none". (Which pretty much breaks the account completely in 1.2.)  -
You can now automatically identify yourself to BitlBee by setting a server
password in your IRC client.  - Compatible with all crazy kinds of line endings
that clients can send.  - Changed root nicknames are now saved.  - Added
ClientInterface setting to bind() outgoing connections to a specific network
interface.  - Support for receiving Jabber chatroom invitations.  - Relaxed port
restriction of the Jabber module: added ports 80 and 443.  - Preserving case in
Jabber resources of buddies, since these should officially be treated as case
sensitive.  - Fully stripping spaces from AIM screennames, this didn't happen
completely which severly breaks the IRC protocol.  - Fixed GLib <2.6
compatibility issue.  - Misc. memory leak/crash fixes.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

This update can be installed with the "yum" update program.  Use 
su -c 'yum update bitlbee' at the command line.
