Various UI fixes and enhancements, including:

  • Better navigation in the buddy list buffer

  • Spell checking now accessible via the customisation interface
  • Typing notifications supported
  • Incoming message alerts (Freedesktop, sound, or roll-your-own)

Available here till it hits the mirrors:

You can now set up garak to alert you when a message
turns up in a hidden IM buffer, your name is mentioned
in a hidden chat/muc/channel buffer, or a new conversation
is created, either by playing a sound file or by issuing
a notice via the org.freedesktop.Notifications interface [...]

Garak in a terminal III
     posted by fledermaus, Tue 02 Mar 2010 01:32:50 AM UTC

Minor bugfix: the buddy list would sometimes get the text
mode status icons instead of the graphical ones as a result
of yesterday's release.

Also removed a stray debug message.

Garak in a terminal II
     posted by fledermaus, Mon 01 Mar 2010 01:29:20 AM UTC

Ok, here's the promised new release:

Significant changes:

  • No attempt to create an image should be made if the display (or emacs) does not support images
  • The account and buddy list should update correctly in text mode
  • Status indicators (garak-icon-tags) should update in text mode

Until it hits the mirrors.

Garak in a terminal
     posted by fledermaus, Sun 28 Feb 2010 04:18:38 AM UTC

Fixed a bunch of bugs to do with how the buddy/account list
was displayed/updated when running in a terminal - the only
remaining one I'm aware of is that buddy statuses are not
reflected in the buddy list [in terminal mode only].

New release shortly once that one is fixed.

Bugfix: Optional Parameters when creating a "chat" no longer hidden
     posted by fledermaus, Fri 11 Dec 2009 01:37:27 AM UTC

Optional parameters were omitted from the list users were
prompted for when creating a "chat" entry, so a user could not
(easily) create (for example) a passworded jabber MUC entry
in their contact list.

This should now be working correctly.


Until it appears in the savannah download area.

New release: Zombie Suppressor merged, Fewer spurious *Messages* notices
     posted by fledermaus, Thu 10 Dec 2009 12:59:30 PM UTC

Merged in the zombie suppressor and libpurple plugin loader
support (daemon only, no ui as yet). Greatly reduced the
amount of noise spewed into *Messages* by widget updates etc.

Get it at until it
turns up on savannah.

Zombie children suppressed
     posted by fledermaus, Wed 05 Aug 2009 01:13:47 AM UTC

The elim-client process often spawned children (via libpurple)
that then ended up as zombies: The zombie-cleanup branch should
now suppress child-zombification.

Plugin loading extended (plugin-support branch)
     posted by fledermaus, Wed 05 Aug 2009 01:11:50 AM UTC

Non-prpl (ie non-protocol) plugins can now be loaded with
the load-plugin daemon call in the plugin-support branch.
