April brought an all new message styling parser, making Gajim fully compliant with XEP-0393. This post will also give you a sneak peek on some features we’ve been developing for the past months: the new Chat view and Contact Info window.
Changements dans Gajim
As promised last month, this post will cover some of the new Chat view features we’re currently developing. April brought a lot of code refactoring, making Gajim ready for all of the new features which are planned. But let’s have a look at the new Chat view (work in progress):
Each message type (e.g. info message, chat message, subject) features its
Row. This enables Gajim to apply distinct styling and elements to the
various message types. Info messages for example are displayed with lower
contrast, in order to move the focus on actual chat messages. Group chat
Subject messages are placed in a separate box to display them
prominently. Each chat
Row offers a button for further actions, such as
quoting or copying message content. The new Chat view also enables you to
scroll back infinitely ⬆️.
Looking at the screenshot, you may notice further styling details for chat
messages: Quotes are now highlighted and indented. Nested quotes are
possible as well. Code blocks surrounded by backticks
``` will now be
displayed inside a code widget, including code language detection, syntax
highlighting, and a code block copy button. The whole message styling parser
has been rewritten from scratch, making Gajim fully compliant with
XEP-0393 (Message Styling).
As mentioned in last month’s news, the Contact Info window also received an update. It takes advantage the Info Grid we introduced for the new Profile window. Sharing the code base between these two windows significantly reduces maintenance effort. The new Contact Info window features a settings page, where contact subscription actions are displayed. This page will most likely offer further settings in the future. Contact group management has been moved into a page as well, making the old group management dialog obsolete. All devices of your contact are now neatly displayed on a Devices page. There could be even more pages in the future, e.g. an OMEMO page for fingerprint management.
This is only part of what we’re planning to do for the next release of Gajim. We’ll show more details with the coming blog posts. Stay tuned!

Mises à jour de l’extension
Gajim’s PGP (Legacy) plugin received an update which fixes sending

files from URLs containing
