	  with different nickname than he used with the first client.
	* Send self presence as the first presence from the MUC room.
	* Send the icon hash to the backend with other buddies information.
	* Send unavailable presence as a response to presence for exiting

	  Should fix the issue with repeating messages with prpl-facebook.

	General:
	* Fix joining the room when using JID Escaping even for '@' character.
	* Fix Raw XML mode - fixes the Swiften backend.

	  for networks like Skype or Facebook where the room list is not global
	  per network.
	* Support usage of aliases in the rooms, so backends can use the
	  network-based UID for the buddies in the room while still setting
	  user-friendly aliases to them.

	XMPP frontend:
	* Handle the XMPP VCard changes - updating avatar should work now for

	  way of managing (".spectrum2 ..." commands sent to Spectrum 2 bot)

	  buddies numbers.
