emesene 2.11.7

Another month has passed (actually two, but who cares), so here we are with the new release: emesene 2.11.7!

A new version of course bring a new set of features, so here's a list of the most important ones:

- Plugins and themes can be loaded from ~/.config/emesene2/[plugins|themes]
- Avatars for Google talk and Facebook
- Mail access in Google talk
- A new Windows installer
- Unity launcher support
- Fully supported Adium theme set. All the themes are now Adium style
- Conversations don't close when the user is disconnected
- Updated translations
- Again, more than 100 user reported issues were closed

Thanks again to everyone who helped making this release possible, being it by contributing a huge amount of code, or by simply submitting a bug report. Every contribution helps to make emesene better.

Of course we can always use some extra people that help develop emesene. You might think it too hard for you, but if I may take myself as an example: about half a year ago I didn't even know python yet, and here I am writing you about the new emesene release. It's not that hard really, but coding still takes time, which is not something we have a lot of. That's why we need you.

Now, to download emesene 2.11.7, the source is available as a zipball or tarball. Just extract and run!

Other packages should be available soon. Just watch the download page.

Riccardo (c10ud) said...

emesene is fully translated to hungarian, see https://translations.launchpad.net/emesene

Arnold said...

Thanks :) how to use this PO file?

Riccardo (c10ud) said...

If your system locale is Hungarian, then it will pick up the right translation automatically

DogmaX said...

Yeah, it's great, I like it but... the damn "Now Playing" plugin... Is it exist? When we can use it?

Lucas Carnero said...

Hello! Glad to see there is another release :) I'm downloading it!

Fearless said...

Where is Ubuntu versiyon ???

ricsipontaz said...

@Arnold: Az emesene teljesen magyar, nem kell semmilyen .po fájl letöltened. :)

(The emesene is support hungarian language, you don't need to download a po file)

Chris said...

Why can't I see any of the MSN Groups that I'm in? Can't see them nor when anyone writes in them.

Running 2.11.7 under Arch with pywebkit installed as it should!

Chris said...

And I don't mean conversation groups or temporarly groups you're invited to.
It's those groups that you're always invited to and pop ups as soon as anyone writes in it.

@Cimi: bug report and ping me on freenode, maybe we can sort this out

MattMetal said...

can i move plugins folder files from emesene 1 to emesene 2 plugins folder?

Raywin said...

Why i cant use adium type for my conversation under windows ?

rbbernardino said...

thank you! I really enjoy emesene and your post really interested me in helping you, I'm a programmer and don't know much about python, but I usually learn fast and love challenges, so I want to contribute!

Regards!

@Raywin
I don't know why adium themes aren't working for you. The crashing issue was fixed in 2.11.6-devel so it should be fixed in 2.11.7. I haven't had the issue with it since it was fixed, and I even purposely tried to cause it.

Only thing I can suggestion is completely remove it. Make sure no files remain from emesene2. Then reinstall 2.11.7. Also maybe try the portable version of 2.11.7, see if its happening there.

syst3mfailur3 said...

@MattMetal
emesene1 plugins are NOT compatible with emesene2, so copying the older plugins won't work. There are emesene2 plugins available at https://github.com/emesene/emesene-supported-plugins and there IS a now playing plugin there.

Unfortunatly there is no webcam support right due to microsoft changing something on there end and lack of dev resources on the emesene end.

Raywin said...

@syst3mfailur3
Thank for your reply and assist ^^
I have tried both version, it facing the same problem.
When i press enter for sending message out while using adium theme, my emesene 2 immediately hang.

Leo said...

I would like to know if I can use it as Multi-protocol already =P

luismarianoguerra said...

nope, one protocol at a time, and it will stay like that

project filosophy :)

Leo said...

Gracias hermano Luis, even being one protocol, you guys still rock =]

luismarianoguerra said...

Leo, gracias.

Pidgin es un muy buen cliente multiprotocolo.

saludos

gerybn said...

but doesn't support the videocall again.i prefer the original than that

drumlin said...

Hola. Estoy usando la version portable 2.11.7 de emesene. Como puedo cambiar el lenguaje de la interfaz en inglés a español?

Luis said...

where i can get pluggins?

jj said...

a couple of questions.

where can one get plugins for this version? mainly i'm looking for the one that showed the last few lines of the previous conversation when you started a new one.

also, the config offers the "enable logger" option but i can't seem to find a way to view the logs. any hint on that?

and finally, i'm using xmonad and whenever a new window is opened, the input field takes up exactly half the size of the window. this is extremely annoying. is there a way to configure emesene2 so it doesn't happen? emesene1 worked just fine in this regard.

and of course, thank you very much for your efforts. emesene is greatly appreciated.

It's still locking for me using webkit rendering (just text output works) on all my windows (Windows 7) machines

Riccardo (c10ud) said...

2.11.7 coming to Ubuntu PPA (debs can work in other debian-based distros too)

syst3mfailur3 said...

@105727191197870538777
Not sure why adium themes are still causing emesene to crash, as they have been fixed for a while for me.

Open up a new issue, and please give as much info as possible. Thanks.

ViBE said...

where can i find working plugins (like now playing) for emesene and how can i install them?

iGer said...

Tengo una pregunta, en que directorio encuentro las imagenes de mi perfil y las de mis contactos, las puedo ver en las opciones de la lista de contactos pero no se en que directorio puedo encontrar las imagenes

luismarianoguerra said...

suelen estar en /.config/emesene2///

dentro de alguna carpeta ahi dentro

saludos

drumlin said...

Hola. Perdón por insistir pero es posible tener emesene2 en español bajo windows? Como puedo cambiar el lenguaje de la interfaz?
