AkariXB v0.7 released

As mentioned in the last post, it’s time for version 0.7 of AkariXB, my Jabber/XMPP bot.

Contact list

The main changes since v0.6 are:

  • When joining a chatroom (MUC), backlog messages will not be processed.
  • Added a menu option to abort ongoing (maybe stuck) connections.
  • Added basic documentation in a help window.
  • Activities will take the date into account, and late-to-early activity time and date ranges are now supported.
  • Nicer, categorized logging, including subscription-related messages and presence errors, and using rich text formatting.
  • Basic contact list (roster) management.
  • Added %happyemoji% and %sademoji% string substitutions.
  • Messages will not be sent to rooms the bot has not joined.
  • Duplicate items will not be allowed in keyword-based lists.


The source code for this release can be downloaded from linux-apps.com (not uploaded here yet), part of the opendesktop.org network, and from AkariXB release archive at akarixb.nongnu.org.

The development repository is at gitlab.com/akarixb/akarixb-dev.

The main dependencies are Qt 5 and the QXMPP library.

AkariXB is available in the repositories of Mageia 6 and later, and Rosa 2016.1. I hope it can be included in more GNU distributions soon. If you’re interested in having it in yours, just ask them 😉

Enjoy! o/
