Gabber

Gabber is a Jabber client for GNOME. Jabber is a flexible distributed Open Source instant messaging system. It also happens to allow communication with other instant messaging systems, such as ICQ, AIM, Yahoo!, MSN, and even IRC. Gabber aims to implement quite a bit of Jabber's functionality while remaining easy to use.

Release Notes: This version features a lot of small updates over the past year, including a status icon using the freedesktop.org protocol for GNOME2/KDE3, nickname highlighting in group chats, a Read Previous button in normal messages, an updated XML parser, and a bunch of bugfixes.

  •  18 Feb 2002 00:25

Release Notes: In this version, the Jabber library Gabber uses, jabberoo, has been updated to the latest version of the Jabber XML parsing library, libjudo. This fixes many XML parsing crashes, such as searching jabber.com's Jabber Users Directory and logging in and out of Jabber repeatedly. Gabber now supports invisibility, a new feature in Jabber which is currently only available on jabberd 1.4.2. There is also now support for SOCKS 4/5 and three types of HTTP Proxy. Several other changes were made.

Release Notes: Several bugfixes (including one which caused problems with GPG encrypting messages), compile support for gcc 3 on Linux and several other architectures where Gabber did not compile without patches before, and a rewrite of the normal message dialog.

  •  13 Nov 2001 00:25

Release Notes: Bugfixes to critical issues (such as crashes) and to non-critical issues dealing with message management were added. File transfer support, 'drag-n-drop' support, and translation updates were added.

  •  22 Jul 2001 14:55

Release Notes: The preference saving/loading and message management backends were rewritten, which should solve many problems people were having with preferences and messages. Many other smaller feature enhancements and bugfixes found their way into this release as well.

Re: Jabber 1.x
Umm.. there is no "reference implementation" of
any Jabber client. Jabber refers to the protocol
and the server. Everything else is third party.

BTW, what was the problem? The gateways to ICQ,
AIM, etc. have been a bit flaky lately, but they
are improving rapidly.

Jabber 1.x
The windows reference implementation is severly screwed up, guess we can only hope that its is a client issue rather than jabber server issues. Great idea though.

Debian Dependencies

In case you missed it on gabber.sourceforge.net... (gabber.sourceforge.net...), the Debian packages for gtkmm and gnomemm are available from my web site at landrum.cx/~eliot/pack... (landrum.cx/~eliot/pack...). You probably don't need the -dev packages, unless you plan on compiling Gabber yourself.

libgnet1.0 packages can be apt-get'ed with the following line in /etc/apt/sources.list:

deb www.eecs.umich.edu/~dh... unstable main
