BarnOwl 1.5 Release Notes

The BarnOwl Developers are pleased to announce the release of BarnOwl
version 1.5.

It has been installed in the Athena locker, and you can download it
from the website [1] or get the source from Github [2]. BarnOwl 1.5
contains many bug fixes and new features by 10 developers, including:

* IRC and Jabber will now attempt to automatically reconnect after
  being disconnected from a server.

* The performance of narrowing to filters that reference other filters
  has been greatly improved.

* The ^Z key combination can now be rebound. You can use
   :startup bindkey global C-z command suspend
  to restore suspending on ^Z.

The full Changelog is available online [3].

Thank you for using BarnOwl, and we hope you enjoy the new release. As
usual, any bug reports, questions, or feature requests can be directed
to the developers at <barnowl@mit.edu>.
