version 2.4.2 (05/17/2008):
* In MySpaceIM, messages from spambots are discarded (Justin Williams)
* Strip mIRC formatting codes from quit and part messages.
* IRC now displays ban lists in-channel for joined channels.
* Fixed a bug where the list of loaded plugins would get removed when
switching between different operating systems.
* Fix reception of IRC PART without a part message on Undernet
(fixes a problem with litter in the channel user list).
* IRC no longer crashes on /list on servers which erroneously omit
* Update the NetworkManager support to use D-Bus directly, instead of
libnm-glib. Hopefully it's stable now. It will now compile by
default if you have D-Bus support and NetworkManager.h. (Elliott
Sales de Andrade)
* MSN buddy list synchronization is now more forgiving, only asking
about buddies who have disappeared completely from the server list
and not those that have simply moved groups.

of substituting the last character with 1-9 where possible.

* The settings of a chat (e.g. Handle in an XMPP chat, or Exchange in
an AIM chat) can be edited from its context menu in the buddy list.
* Add a "Present conversation window" preference to the Message
Notification plugin; the "Raise conversation window" option does not
unminimize windows or draw attention to them when they are on other
workspaces--the "Present" option should.
* Add a preference to set Escape as the keyboard shortcut for closing
the conversation window.
* Add an option in the context menu to disable smileys in the selected
text in the conversation history/log viewer. This should help people
who regularly paste code in conversations.
* Add a preference to choose the minimum size of the text input area in
* Moved the "Local alias" field in the Modify Account dialog to be below
the "User Options" heading on the "Basic" tab.
* Number of room occupants is now shown in chat tooltips where possible

* The configure script now dies on more absent dependencies. The
--disable-xxx arguments to configure can be used to bypass unneeded
dependencies. This will also cause the configure script to die if an
--enable-xxx option is used and the dependencies it requires are
* The Evolution integration plugin must now be explicitly enabled. Use
the --enable-gevolution argument to configure to enable it.
* The Contact Availability Prediction plugin must now be explicitly
enabled. Use the --enable-cap argument to configure to enable it.

* New default binding ctrl+x to open context menus.
* Menu triggers and other bindings will no longer conflict.
