Gajim 1.8.3

Gajim 1.8.3 has been released

Just after the release of Gajim 1.8.2, we’re releasing Gajim 1.8.3 with improvements for the profile window, fail-safes for anonymous accounts, bug fixes for the account wizard, and several other fixes. Thank you for all your contributions!

What’s New

Several issues with anonymous accounts should be resolved by improved account handling in general.

Gajim’s main window can now be closed by pressing the Esc key, if you enable closing windows via Esc in Gajim’s preferences.

What else changed:

  • Group chat participants list is shown correctly again
  • If you update your profile picture, it should now be visible in group chats without having to join again
  • Emoji short code detection has been improved

Have a look at the changelog for a complete list.
