Hi all,

we finally finished another feature release for Quassel. 0.13.0 is now available 
at the usual locations [1].

Highlights of the release include new branding and application icons, support 
for the Breeze icon theme, many UI improvements, decent support for IRCv3 
features, containerization support and LDAP authentication for Quassel Core. 
Dozens of bugfixes and quality-of-life improvements went into the release as 

Much work went into better supporting mobile clients such as Quasseldroid, 
e.g. by moving activity tracking and highlight rules into the Core. Database 
performance has been improved, and the database schema has been made more 
future-proof by using 64 bit message IDs and timestamps.

At the same time, we have kept compatibility to older clients/cores, so 0.13.0 
can be used with previous versions.

Note that on first run, the database schema will be automatically upgraded, 
which with large databases may take quite some time and temporarily double the 
disk space. Also be aware that no rollback to an older version is possible, so 
do make backups before first run!

Please read the release announcement [2] and the ChangeLog [3] for more 
details. Feel free to join us in #quassel at Freenode if you have any 

We hope you like the new release!

All the best,
~ Sput
