After more than a year of development, it’s finally time to announce the release of Gajim 1.4.0! ๐ŸŽ‰ Gajim 1.4 series comes with a completely redesigned message window and conversation management. Workspaces allow you to organize your chats to keep matters separate where needed. These changes were only possible by touching a lot of Gajim’s code base, and we appreciate all the feedback we got from you.

The new Gajim version comes with a completely redesigned main window. This window offers a sidebar containing workspaces, where you can organize all of your chats. Workspaces have been explained in detail last year. Each workspace holds a list of currently opened chats for both 1:1 chats and group chats. This makes it easy for you to keep matters separate. To make things simple and easy to use, we decided to migrate to a single window approach for Gajim. Chats opened via chat list will be displayed right next to it, keeping the window compact.

The way Gajim displays messages had not been changed for years. The previous approach had many limitations, but it was hard to replace it. Gajim 1.4 comes with a new approach, where each message is a separate ‘row’, which you can see in the above screenshot. This approach does not only look much cleaner, it also enables us to implement new features in the future, thinking of message reactions, replies, and so on.
