Gossip 0.7.8 released
Sep 02, 2004

Imendio is very happy to announce version 0.7.8 of our instant messaging client Gossip!

Gossip is an instant messaging client for GNOME with an easy-to-use interface, providing users of the GNOME Desktop with a friendly way to keep in touch with their friends.

This release fixes an issue where you have a global proxy set but you don't want to use it for Gossip. Ross Burton was fast to answer a call for help and added a setting in the account dialog to disable the system proxy.

Full list of fixes in 0.7.8:

  • Added option for disabling system proxy (Ross Burton)
  • Typo fixes (Richard)
  • Updated translations (sv, en_CA)

getting anxious prior to the upcoming release, the latest incarnation of Gnome Ghostview features an brand new desktop file that lists it as capable of displaying application/postscript mime type (Ray) and an updated, bug-fixed version of the recent-files code (Mark).

On the your-favourite-language front, updates have been made to sl (me), ro (Misu), nn (Åsmund), cs (Miloslav), de (Hendrik), ar (Arafat), el (Nikos), hu (Laszlo), pt_BR (Gustavo Maciel Dias), eu (Iñaki), sv (Christian), ru (Leonid), ca (Jordi), sq (Laurent), az (Mætin), da (Martin), fi (Tommi), pl (Artur), zh_CN (Funda), sr&sr@Latn (Danilo), uk (Maxim), nl (Tino), ko (Changwoo), en_CA (Adam), fa (Meelad), no (Kjartan), es (Francisco Javier), pt (Duarte), hi (Guntupalli), ja (Takeshi) and en_GB (Gareth).

besides all those updates, Amila has added Bosnian translation (honoured by this release's name) and Kjartan has been kind enough to provide us with yet another norwegian dialect, Norwegian Bokmül!
