bitlbee-skype is now merged

Estimated read time: 1 minutes

Back in April I had the idea to merge my bitlbee-skype plugin to the main BitlBee project. The reason is simple: BitlBee does not really have plugins (basically my Skype plugin was the only one) and because of this, ABI compatibility was not guaranteed, so I usually had to rebuild or even fix it after each BitlBee release (though Wilmer was helpful in case I was in doubt). Today this is all past, the plugin is part of the main BitlBee repo I won’t make separate bitlbee-skype releases anymore. (Latest version of the code is here, bzr info here.)

I’m quite happy this little piece of software did not get lost, but now is in the hands of an active maintainer again. :) If you need help with BitlBee, ask on #bitlbee, at
