About:
The Off-the-Record (OTR) Messaging proxy is a multi- platform proxy that
allows you to have private conversations  using the AIM client of your
choice. It provides encryption,  which prevents someone who intercepts
your instant  messages from reading them, authentication, which ensures 
that the correspondent is who you think it is, and perfect  forward
secrecy, which ensures that no previous  conversation is compromised if
you lose control of your  private keys. 

Changes:
Support for OTR protocol version 2 was added. It will still interoperate
with version 1 clients, though with a warning to the user. Non-ASCII
charsets are handled properly.  

Release focus: Minor security fixes
