Gajim 1.5.4

Gajim 1.5.4 has been released

Gajim 1.5.4 comes with a reworked file transfer interface, better URL detection, message selection improvements, and many fixes under the hood. Thank you for all your contributions!

What’s New

Gajim’s interface for sending files has been reworked, and should be much easier to use now. For each file you’re about to send, Gajim will generate a preview. This way, you can avoid sending the wrong file to somebody. Regardless of how you start a file transfer, be it drag and drop, pasting a screen shot, or simply clicking the share button, you’ll always be able to check what you’re about to send.
