 Log Message:
 update to bsflite-0.80
 patch by Evan Hall in PR 29964 (slightly modified)
 0.80 - 04/13/2005
  * Changed keepalive messages to FLAP channel 0x05 messages, as recommended.
  * Re-implemented idle time reporting. Any keystroke in bsflite now resets
    your idle time, rather than only on sending a message.
  * New option "respond_idle_only" to send away message auto-response only
    when away and idle.
  * Fixed the terminal line erasing problem previously detailed in the README
    both in UNIX (using vt100 sequences), Windows (using console functions)
    and DOS (using conio functions). Plan 9 is unaffected since the rio
    terminal properly supports reverse line wrap.
  * Screen names longer than 16 characters are trimmed to the first
    13 characters plus "..." in the buddy list display. Use 'wf' to
    see the entire name. This is necessary now with and accounts.
  * New command 'G' : write away messages in ~/.bsflite/awaymessages,
    one per line, and use 'G' to set them.
  * Finally added server-side buddy lists. Buddy add/delete now stores the
    information on the server. If you have a buddies file, run this
    new version with it once, then delete it.
  * Optional "netspeak cleaner" - see cleaner.c and config file
  * Cleaned up and sped up login sequence.
  * Fixed a mysterious bug where mobile users would disappear from the
    buddy list even though they were online.
  * imcomm now supports sending more than one packet at a time, which
    seems to be how other clients do some things. The fetch awaymsg/profile
    command now takes advantage of this, which seems to improve the rate
    limit situation a bit. Also, the 'b' command works most of the time
    without triggering a rate limit warning.
  * Buddy list display now adjusts with screen size.
  * Added a configuration file. See config-example for details.
  * Changed default paths to ~/.bsflite/[config,log,profile,buddies,icon]
  * Fixed the endlessly repeating error messages on certain platforms.
  * l command now shows the last 20 lines instead of 10.
  * Implemented MD5-based login in IMComm instead of the old, "roasted"
    password algorithm. This improves things on three fronts:
     - your password is no longer sent in plaintext
     - you can login with a account
     - you can login with an ICQ UIN
    This is the way the official client has done things for a while. I used
    MD5 routines developed by L. Peter Deutsch (md5.c, md5.h in imcomm/)
    for this, at least until I become inspired enough to write my own.
