Gajim 1.3.1 has been released! 🚀
With this release we managed to get a good portion of bugs fixed. Gajim 1.3.1 also includes some convenient improvements. Thanks everyone for reporting issues!

@MaSven @kubikpixel standardmäßig ist es nicht dabei, aber es kann ohne Probleme per Flatpak installiert werden:

@tux @kubikpixel für private Gruppenchats sollte standardmäßig eine Benachrichtigung angezeigt werden. Du kannst im Gruppenchat unter "Einstellungen" nach "Benachrichtigung bei allen Meldungen" aktivieren, falls es deaktiviert ist.

Bei Fragen kannst du auch gerne hier vorbeischauen:

@kubikpixel danke für die Anmerkungen! Unter helfen wir gern weiter.

1) Tatsächlich wird OMEMO nicht standardmäßig aktiviert und Gajim schaltet beim Empfang von verschlüsselten Nachrichten nicht automatisch um (das ist verbesserungswürdig). Unter Windows und Debian (package recommends) wird das Plugin automatisch installiert.

2) "Show contact list on startup" (funktioniert allerdings nicht im Single Window Mode). In Gajim 1.4 wird das komplett überarbeitet!

Gajim Development News February: This month brings many bug fixes for the upcoming Gajim 1.3.1 release. The Profile window’s error handling has been improved, and selecting small images for an avatar should now work as expected. While fixing those bugs, we’ve been working on something big.

@makhiscal on Windows, we had to disable translations temporarily. This is due to a bug in a package Gajim relies on. Hopefully we’ll be able to ship the next version with translations again!

Five months after Gajim 1.2.2, we’re proud to announce the release of Gajim 1.3.0! Many new features have been developed since, including a complete redesign of both Gajim’s Preferences window and configuration backend, an all new Profile window, support for Chat Markers, a new user interface for voice/video calls, and much more.

The latest #WhatsApp news is part of a general trend where companies erode their own privacy policies over time. It is rare that you will ever see a privacy policy update that adds clauses in its users' favour.

These companies need more data to thrive and grow. It's how they work, it's their DNA.

I believe that only communication platforms with no central ownership can be trusted. That's why I'm working hard on @snikket_im. I already migrated my family to it, and it's going great!

Tails natively ships with a client. Currently Pidgin.
For security reason Tails is going to replace it.

New XMPP client that Tails is likely to natively install will be either @dino or @gajim

Some research about them and Tails requirements you can read here:
(keep in mind that it's a living paper)

More than four months have passed since the release of Gajim 1.2.2. A lot has happened during this time, including a complete redesign of both Gajim’s Preferences window and configuration backend. Be the first to have a look, and help us ironing out the last issues before the final version arrives.

Development Update: In December, the profile window received a complete rework, adding state of the art vCard capabilities and a brand new profile picture selector to Gajim. Furthermore, Chat Markers have been improved and some bugs have been fixed.
