Added some neat whatsnew code that keeps track of the newest version of
BitlBee used by a user, and if it looks like s/he hasn't used this one
before, show a list of new features that may be interesting.

Since I don't think im.bitlbee.org users will read any changelogs ever,
this is probably not a bad idea. If you hate it, the following command
should get rid of it forever: set last_version 9999999

     240Most of the core of BitlBee was rewritten since the last release. This entry
     241should sum up the majority of the changes.

     245First of all, you can now have as many control channels as you want. Or you
     246can have none, it's finally possible to leave &amp;bitlbee and still talk to
     247all your contacts. Or you can have a &amp;work with all your work-related
     248contacts, or a &amp;msn with all your MSN Messenger contacts. See <emphasis>help
     249channels</emphasis> for more information about this.
     250</para>
     251
     252<para>
     253Also, you can change how nicknames are generated for your contacts. Like
     254automatically adding a [fb] tag to the nicks of all your Facebook contacts.
     255See <emphasis>help nick_format</emphasis>.
     256</para>
     257
     258<para>
     259When you're already connected to a BitlBee server and you connect from
     260elsewhere, you can take over the old session.
     261</para>
     262
     263<para>
     264Instead of account numbers, accounts now also get tags. These are
     265automatically generated but can be changed (<emphasis>help set
     266tag</emphasis>). You can now use them instead of accounts numbers.
     267(Example: <emphasis>acc gtalk on</emphasis>)
     268</para>
     269
     270<para>
     271Last of all: You can finally change your nickname and
     272shorten root commands (try <emphasis>acc li</emphasis> instead
     273of <emphasis>account list</emphasis>).
