Gajim 1.6.1 is mostly a bug fixing release, but it also brings some important improvements and adds more convenience. Thank you for all your contributions!
After we ported Gajim and python-nbxmpp to
libsoup3, you might have noticed issues with file transfers. Now, python-nbxmpp 4.0.1 has been released, and it fixes an error which prevented transfers of files containing spaces in their file name.
Gajim struggled with overly long messages, because the underlying
Gtk.Label widget wasn’t meant for displaying huge amounts of text. Since this severely impacted performance, we decided to implement a cap at 5000 chars, after which a
[read more] button will be shown. This allows you to still view the complete message (using a
Gtk.TextView), but without text styling applied.
Furthermore, Gajim’s new audio preview received improved support for RTL languages (@mesonium).
