Gajim 1.4.4

Gajim 1.4.4 has been released

Gajim 1.4.4 comes with many improvements: emoji auto-complete, automatic theme switching when your desktop switches from light to dark in the evening, a completely reworked Gajim remote interface, and many bug fixes.

What’s New

After many emoji improvements in Gajim 1.4.3, this version comes with an emoji auto-complete while writing messages! As soon as you start typing a :, a popover will show you available emoji shortcodes, just like on Slack or Github 🎉

This works for chat commands as well. Starting a message with / will show you available commands, like /me for example.

Gajim’s behavior when closing or minimizing the main window can now easily be configured, and it should work better on various systems.

Did you know you can integrate Gajim in custom scripts for automation? Gajim offers a DBus interface, which has been completely rewritten in this release.
