What's new?

  • Creating a new conversation tab has been made easier.
    • Clicking the '+' button in a conversation window shows a list of conversations that can be started with a single click.
    • The list is sorted with a frecency algorithm, taking into account how often and how recently you've talked to each contact.
    • This list also automatically includes the channels advertised by the IRC servers you are connected to.
  • New tooltips that better fit the style of Instantbird
  • Improved Multi-user chats user interface:
    • Participants now have context menus that allow you to open private conversations or add them as buddies.
    • Highlighted nicks in chat rooms now have tooltips and context menus.
  • Auto-joined chat rooms that have been put on hold will stay on hold after a restart.
  • A list of alternate nicks for IRC can be configured, in case your preferred nick is taken when you connect.
  • about: pages (e.g. about:config) can now easily be opened with the /about command (e.g. /about config).
  • Retina display support on Mac OS X.
  • Google Talk and Hangouts Android users are now shown as mobile.
  • Google Hangouts users will no longer appear as always typing.
  • Better support for displaying RTL languages in conversations.
  • The vKontakte protocol was removed as the vKontakte service dropped support for connecting with an XMPP client.
  • New for developers: New API to add tab panels with arbitrary content to conversation windows: in-code documentation.
  • Updated to Mozilla 25.
  • Various minor bugs and a few crashers fixed.
  • And more... read the full ChangeLog for details of all code changes since Instantbird 1.4.

Known Issues:

  • NVDA users should update to 2014.1 to work around a bug in the Mozilla platform that leads to "Unknown" being said when scrolling through the contact list.
  • Clicking on URLs doesn't work on some newer Linux distributions, to work around this, open about:config (/about config in a conversation) and search for network.protocol-handler.warn-external, set all of these values to true. You will now be prompted for a program after clicking these links. See bug 1995.
