28.08.2007: [Release] gobby 0.4.5, sobby 0.4.4

Dear Gobby users,

it is time for a new release. It contains two important fixes: the first one eases running Gobby on Windows versions other than English and German by allowing special characters in Gobby's installation path and another one which fixes the handling of files not encoded in UTF-8.

Sobby is updated to allow session files to be specified in the configuration file which is especially helpful in init scripts.

For Gentoo users: We hope that Gobby will be kept up to date again starting with this release. We cannot guarantee this, but the clouds dissolve slowly. Thanks to Tiziano Mueller, after one year of no changes to the Portage tree with relation to Gobby, this release is again included in Gentoo together with the libraries needed.

Changes from gobby-0.4.4 to gobby-0.4.5:

  • Important bugfixes:
  • fixed the save routine for files not encoded in UTF-8
  • allow Gobby to run inside paths containing non-ASCII characters

Changes from sobby-0.4.3 to sobby-0.4.4:

  • Allow initial session file to be specified in the configuration file

16.06.2007: [Release] net6 1.3.5, gobby 0.4.4

Dear Gobby users,

some bugs popped up in Gobby over the last few months. Some fixes to both net6 and Gobby are quite important to be applied, to crush some nasty crashes.

All users are advised to upgrade those packages. If Sobby is installed it should also be recompiled after an upgrade of net6.

This upgrade also makes Gobby usable on Windows Vista, for those who need it. Previously any try to send a chat message crashed the program.

Changes from net6-1.3.4 to net6-1.3.5:

  • Bug fix release, fixing a dereference of an already freed pointer

Changes from gobby-0.4.2 to gobby-0.4.3:

  • Fixed two crashes: one on Windows Vista related to the chat widget, and one triggered on rejoins with multiple documents opened in the editor
  • GtkSourceView's C API is called directly
  • The document list is now sorted alphabetically
  • New translations: Italian and Russian
