Gajim 1.4.0 has been released 🚀
After more than a year of development, it’s finally time to announce the release of Gajim 1.4.0! 🎉
Gajim 1.4 series comes with a completely redesigned message window and conversation management. Workspaces allow you to organize your chats to keep matters separate where needed. These changes were only possible by touching a lot of Gajim’s code base, and we appreciate all the feedback we got from you.
Gajim Development News: This month came with a lot of preparations for the release of Gajim 1.4 🚀 Gajim’s release pipeline has been improved in many ways, allowing us to make releases more frequently. Furthermore, April brought improvements for file previews on Windows.
#BeagleIM 5.2 (https://github.com/tigase/beagle-im/releases/tag/5.2) and #SiskinIM 7.2 (https://github.com/tigase/siskin-im/releases/tag/7.2) #XMPP native clients for #Apple #macOS and #iOS written in #Swift #SwiftLang just got released:
* Fixed issue with decoding OMEMO encrypted message in MUC channels
* Fixed issue with MUC participants disappearing randomly
* Fixed issue with VoIP call sending an incorrect payload during call negotiation
March brings a new issue reporting system and many performance improvements for both Gajim and python-nbxmpp. Gajim’s OMEMO plugin comes with some improvements as well. Last but not least, there has been a security issue in python-nbxmpp, which has been fixed in version 2.0.6.
February brought a new and unified Groupchat Details window, which offers all the configuration knobs you need ⚙️. Also this month: less memory leaks and improved OMEMO QR codes.

@ryan we work on Notifications at the moment. There have been many changes. Native notifications are not possible with GObject at the moment, sadly.
Previewing GIFs and videos is on the TODO. Adding an 'unlimited' option for preview download would be easy to implement 👍
Work on Gajim 1.4 is making big steps forward! 🚀 After nine months of developing Gajim’s new main window, the code was finally ready to be merged into the master branch. This enables automatic builds of nightlies for Linux and Windows.
Gajim is a fully-featured XMPP chat client.
