Description

Upstream released Bitlbee 1.2.2 with the following changes to the former release: - Security bugfix: It was possible to hijack accounts (without gaining access to the old account, it's simply an overwrite) - Some more stability improvements. - Fixed bug where people with non-lowercase nicks couldn't drop their account. - Easier upgrades of non-forking daemon mode servers (using the DEAF command). - Can be cross-compiled for Win32 now! (No support for SSL yet though, which makes it less useful for now.) - Exponential backoff on auto-reconnect. - Changing passwords gives less confusing feedback ('password is empty') now. Finished 26 Aug 2008

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the Fedora security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.
