>Synopsis: Please update version of Gajim XMPP instant messenger in pkgsrc
>Arrival-Date: Sun Apr 16 08:35:00 +0000 2023
>Originator: Adrian Immanuel Kiess
>Release: NetBSD 9.3
System: NetBSD elitebook.lan.dac 9.3 NetBSD 9.3 (GENERIC) #0: Thu Aug 4 15:30:37 UTC 2022 mkrepro%mkrepro.NetBSD.org@localhost:/usr/src/sys/arch/amd64/compile/GENERIC amd64
it would be nice if you could bump the version of chat/gajim/ in pkgsrc to a newer version, as version 1.7.3 is already downlaodable. I use Gajim 1.7 series on Debian and would like to do so on NetBSD too.
The new Gajim version contains a fully updated, much better XMMP chat client, with which working is very good.
To provide better usability for XMPP/Jabber users, please update the Gajim package in pkgsrc.
Please also ensure, that the following bug is fixed within Gajim, when updating it.
The ticket was: http://gnats.netbsd.org/cgi-bin/query-pr-single.pl?number=56022
( Gajim XMPP/Jabber client will not store passwords )
I would also like to point out, to an older request from myself by this chance, in which I requested that TKabber should be updated. The TKabber version in pkgsrc does not support SSL/TLS and is very old. Since most of the XMPP/Jabber servers work by using SSL/TLS nowadays, it may not be usable anymore (this is the case for me).
The ticket was: http://gnats.netbsd.org/cgi-bin/query-pr-single.pl?number=55950
( Tkabber does not support TLS encryption )
A usability bug I found in MCabber, which would be nice if fixed, for good usabilty of XMPP chat software on NetBSD:
The ticket was: http://gnats.netbsd.org/cgi-bin/query-pr-single.pl?number=57054
mcabber: User interface gets destroyed/garbled on screen refresh (CTRL+L)
Thank you a lot!
Install and use Gajim, TKAbber and MCabber from pkgsrc pre-built binaries on NetBSD/amd64.
Update above named software in pkgsrc.
