Familiar with :apple_inc: Swift, UIKit, and know your way around XCode? Want to help advance the state of on ? :xmpp: 📱 We're looking for developers to help bring our iOS app over the finish line! 🏁

@bjoern syncing workspaces across devices is surely a thing we should think about. But there is no standard yet. Syncing with roster groups would exclude MUCs.

Philipp Hörist (lovetox), maintainer of @gajim, gave a preview of the new Gajim 1.4 User Interface. Gajim is an XMPP client written in Python. It currently receives a big UI overhaul, of which the first results were presented at the Office Hours.🎙️

Right clicking is still possible!

IRC style is not what we’re aiming for, but a more compact view might follow in the future.

Since Gajim 1.4 is still a long way, a hotfix for 1.3 will be very likely (once there is a fix).

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!
