    3030* The sepbar now shows how far you are in a truncated message.

    32 * Our custom event loop has been replaced with the standard GMainLoop
    33  used throughout the Linux desktop stack. This buys us better
    34  interoperability with event-processing third-party code, some
    35  thread-safety, and an event loop we don't have to write ourselves.

    37 * BarnOwl now enables AnyEvent's existing bridge to the Glib event
    38  loop. This bridge (and thus the vast body of AnyEvent-based code on
    39  CPAN) are now available to all perl modules. The existing timer and
    40  io-dispatch APIs now backend onto AnyEvent.

    4240* The IRC module has been ported to AnyEvent::IRC which, among other

    48  directory.
