Thanks to the MOTU for putting out Gajim v0.11 in Edgy’s Universe. There have been a number of nifty changes posted in this update, however a few really stand out for me personally:

  • Support for link-local messaging via Zeroconf using Avahi (XEP-0174)
  • IPV6 support to connect to server – very useful with sixxs.net
  • GNOME Keyring Support
  • Support for notify-python – so if the notification daemon isn’t running you still get pop-ups
  • Support for Privacy Lists (XEP-0016)
  • New translations: Croatian, Esperanto, British English, Belarusian

If you haven’t given Gajim a whirl lately, now is your time to grab it and have a go.
