6.0.1 Release 1 -- March 13, 2020
- #24: upgrade to converse.js 6.0.1, which includes these changes:
For Converse 6.0.1:
- Bugfix. Handle stanza that clears the MUC subject
- #1313: Stylistic improvements to the send button
- #1793: Send button doesn't appear in Firefox in 1:1 chats
- #1822: Don't log error if user has no bookmarks
- #1820: Set focus on jid field after controlbox is loaded
- #1823: New config options
- #1826: A user can now add himself as a contact
- Note: due to a bug in the webpack config, the webfonts directory isn't copied over from ./sass to ./dist when you build
your own distribution files. As a workaround, you can just copy it over manually.
For Converse 6.0.0:
- The debug configuration option has been replaced with loglevel. loglevel.
- In contrast to sessionStorage and localStorage, IndexedDB is an asynchronous database. A lot of code that relied on database access to be synchronous had to be updated to work with asynchronous access via promises.
- In order to add support for XEP-0156, the XMPP connection needs to be created only once we know the JID of the user that's logging in. This means that the connectionInitialized event now fires much later than before. Plugins that rely on connectionInitializedbeing triggered before the user's JID has been provided will need to be updated.
- The following API methods now return promises:
- Changes the events:
- The chatBoxInitialized event now triggers when a _converse.ChatBox (not the view) is opened.
- Renamed the old chatBoxInitialized to chatBoxViewInitialized and trigger only for ChatBoxView instances.
- Renamed chatRoomOpened event to chatRoomViewInitialized
- The order of certain events have now changed: statusInitialized is now triggered after initialized and connected and reconnected.
- _converse.api.chats.get() now only returns one-on-one chats, not the control box or headline notifications.
- The show_only_online_users setting has been removed.
- _converse.api.alert.show is now _converse.api.show and instead of taking an integer for the type, "info", "warn" or "error" should be passed in.
- The converse-headline plugin has been split up into converse-headlines and converse-headlines-view.
5.0.5 Release 1 -- November 20, 2019
- #21: upgrade to converse.js 5.0.5, which includes these changes:

- #1733: New message notifications for a minimized chat stack on top of each other.
- #1757: Chats are hidden behind the controlbox on mobile.
- #1760: Private messages no longer received after websocket reconnect.
5.0.4 Release 1 -- October 8, 2019
- #19: upgrade to converse.js 5.0.4, which includes these changes:
For Converse 5.0.4:
- New config option allow_message_corrections which, if set to last, limits editing of sent messages to the last message sent.
- Bugfix: Don't treat every duplicate message ID as a message correction; since some clients don't use globally unique ID's this causes false positives.
- Bugfix: process stanzas from mam one-by-one in order to correctly process message receipts
- #1712 TypeError: plugin._features is not a function
- #1714 Don't notify the user in case we're receiving a message delivery receipt only
- #1739 New config option assets_path which lets you set the path from which "chunks" are loaded.
For Converse 5.0.3:
- Emit chatBoxFocused and chatBoxBlurred events for emoji picker input
- SECURITY FIX: Reject unencapsulated forwarded messages, since we don't support XEP-0297 on its own
For Converse 5.0.2:
- po translations files are now loaded via Webpack. As a result the locales_url config option is now removed given that the path to the locale JSON files is now determined by the webpack config and can't be changed at runtime.
- The JSON representing emojis is now fetched asynchronously as a separate file converse.emojis.js.
- Webpack is now configured with a publicPath set to /dist/. This is necessary so that chunks (such as the emojis and locales JSON files) can be fetched asynchronously. This means that all your assets need to be served at /dist. If you need to set a different path, you'll need to set publicPath in webpack.config.js to your preferred path and then rebuild all assets (e.g. make dist).
- Use listenTo to avoid memory leaks when views get removed.
- SECURITY FIX: Ignore MAM chat messages not sent from yourself
- #1692 Bugfix: TypeError: oldest_message is undefined
- #1704 SECURITY FIX: Impersonation by misusage of groupchat carbons
- #1705 Bugfix: this.roomspanel is undefined after hibernating

- Reconnect if the server doesn't respond to a ping within 10 seconds.
- Don't query for MAM MUC messages before the cached messages have been restored (another cause of duplicate messages).
- Show an error message and option to retry when fetching of the MAM archive times out

For Converse 5.0.0:
- BOSH support has been moved to a plugin.
- Support for XEP-0410 to check whether we're still present in a room
