You can now set up garak to alert you when a message
turns up in a hidden IM buffer, your name is mentioned
in a hidden chat/muc/channel buffer, or a new conversation
is created, either by playing a sound file or by issuing
a notice via the org.freedesktop.Notifications interface [...]

Minor bugfix: the buddy list would sometimes get the text
mode status icons instead of the graphical ones as a result
of yesterday's release.

Also removed a stray debug message.
