Gajim 1.3.1

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!

What’s New

Just three weeks after the last release, we’re happy to announce Gajim 1.3.1. This is mostly a bugfix release, but it also brings some improvements, such as clickable service provider URLs during account creation, an account badge for group chat invitations (if you have multiple accounts, this comes in handy), and better window behaviour when clicking the status icon.

Known Issues

  • 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!
  • Zeroconf (serverless messaging) has not been re-implemented yet
  • Client certificate setup is not possible yet
