Happy new year! Finally time for a new release of AkariXB, my Jabber/XMPP bot!
The main changes for this release include:
- Honor “Send Messages To” setting in Activities.
- Log outgoing private messages in corresponding chat module tab.
- Ability to detach processes for commands of “Run program” type. *** Previously defined commands of this type will need to be reconfigured. ***
- Keyword-based commands will list possible queries when no parameter is given.
- Option to hide window in system tray on startup.
The source code for this release can be downloaded from linux-apps.com, part of the opendesktop.org network, and from AkariXB release archive at akarixb.nongnu.org.
Development repository is at gitlab.com/akarixb/akarixb-dev.
The main dependencies are Qt 5 and the QXmpp library. Building with Qt 4 is no longer supported.
AkariXB is available in the repositories of Mageia 6 and later. I hope it can be included in more GNU distributions soon. If you’re interested in having it in yours, ask them 😉

I’ll be releasing Dianara 1.4.0 Soon™, so if you use it, it’s a good time to put the development version to the test.
If you maintain a translation, it’s also a good time to update it. There are no more string changes planned between now and the release =)
If Dianara is not translated to your language and you’d like to have it, contributing a translation is quite easy!

Time for a new Auralquiz release. Despite being the very official “1.0.0”, it’s a minor update to the previous version, mostly updating some translations and some documentation. This version still supports both Qt 4.8 and Qt 5.x. Next release will not support Qt 4.
The most notable changes since v0.9.0 are:
- Updated translations.
- Include .opus files in music scan.
- Added AppData (AppStream) file.
- Minor documentation fixes.
Auralquiz is available in the repositories of several GNU/linux distributions. At the time of this post, at least Debian 7 (Wheezy) and newer, Mageia 2 and later, Ubuntu 13.10 and newer, and ALT Linux. Hopefully they’ll have this release packaged soon, either in regular updates or in backports repositories. Thanks to all the great packagers who make this possible! 😉
You can get the code from linux-games.org (old qt-apps.org): https://www.linux-games.org/p/1109384/ or from GNU Savannah: http://download.savannah.gnu.org/releases/auralquiz/auralquiz-v1.0.0.tar.gz
If you need or want to build from source, check the INSTALL file for details on how to build it and the necessary build-time and runtime dependencies.
