    3 Starting from version 1.2, BitlBee has a forking daemon mode. The Debian
    4 package now uses this mode by default, instead of inetd mode. If you don't
    5 want to use this, you can disable the init scripts (best way to do this is
    6 by editing /etc/default/bitlbee) and restore the inetd.conf entry. This
    7 should be necessary only once, it won't be touched during upgrades.
    8 
    9 Another important change in BitlBee 1.2 is the file format used for your
    10 personal settings. Everything's now saved in a single .xml (per account,
    11 of course) file instead of $nick.accounts and $nick.nicks. One advantage
    12 of this new format is that the passwords are actually encrypted instead of
    13 just vaguely obfuscated. BitlBee can still read the old files, and will
    14 save things in the new format when you save/disconnect. After that, you
    15 can safely remove the old-style files (this is recommended).
    16 
    17 I tried making this transition (the new file format but especially, in this
    18 case, the inetd->forkdaemon mode change) as smooth as possible, but I'm
    19 aware that many BitlBee users will have their own hacks already to run the
    20 program. I hope the package won't break any of this for anyone. 1.2-2
    21 should fix at least some of the issues.

    23 ---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    25 Debconf should have asked you on what port you want BitlBee to run. If it
    26 did not, the port number should be 6667 or 6668. (6668 if you already got
    27 something running at 6667)
