Gajim 1.5.2

Gajim 1.5.2 has been released

Gajim 1.5.2 brings another performance boost, better emojis, improvements for group chat moderators, and many bug fixes. Thank you for all your contributions!

What’s New

Generating performance profiles for Gajim revealed some bottlenecks in Gajim’s code. After fixing these, switching chats should now feel snappier than before.

Did you know that you can use shortcodes for typing emojis? Typing :+1 for example will open a popup with emojis to choose from. Now there are even more shortcodes waiting for you. Also, emojis combined by ZJW sequences are now rendered correctly, if they are used for workspace icons.

This release comes with an improvement for admins and moderators of group chats as well: You can now right-click the profile picture of any participant to reach moderation tools.

There has been a bug where messages sent by you would not show under certain circumstances. Various users chimed in to help fixing this bug by reporting under which circumstances it would appear. Thanks for your help!
