Overview of Changes in Chats 0.6.0~beta. Tue, 11 Jan 2022
=========================================================
This version of Chats updates the database schema and thus once you update
to 0.6.0~beta, you shall NOT be able to go back to any older version.  When
the db schema is updated, a copy of older version of the db is stored as
~/.purple/chatty/db/chatty-history.db.xxxx (where xxxx is a unix timestamp)

Right now in any of the 0.5.0~beta, there are several things that are not being
explicitly saved in the chatty database (such as the subject, multiple attachments, etc).
!1023 fixed those issues so that chatty can appropriately handle them.  However,
once one runs that MR, one cannot backport the database, hence the reasoning to go
to 0.6.0~beta instead of 0.5.0~beta5.  It makes it obvious that this is a major upgrade.

* Update database schema to handle MMS subject, multi file attachments, etc.
* Improve database tests to avoid incompatible changes
* Improve auto generated names for multi user MMS chats
* Allow calling contacts from info page
* Fixes issue(s) #666, #668
* Update Translations
