**Development on the new Gajim version continued in July, bringing many fixes and improvements. Also this month: WebSocket improvements and a new python-nbxmpp release.**
<!--more-->
## Changes in Gajim
Since version 1.2, Gajim offers WebSocket support via [XEP-0156](https://xmpp.org/extensions/xep-0156.html). A recent fix enables you to directly connect via WebSocket while creating an account.
Meanwhile, work on the next Gajim version made some progress:
* Workspaces now support custom avatars
* Improved usability of Gajim’s new Search View
* Group chat creation is working again
* Improvements for message scrolling and jump to bottom button
* Fixes for Gajim’s new Notification Manager, which handles contact requests and group chat invitation
* Fixes for direct messages (private messages/direct messages in group chats)
* Fixes for initial migration from Gajim 1.3
### What else happened
* [#10478](https://dev.gajim.org/gajim/gajim/-/issues/10478): Fixed issue with Tests
* [#10598](https://dev.gajim.org/gajim/gajim/-/issues/10598): Fixed issue when adding Note property to vCard
* Updated API JID for search.jabber.network group chat search
* Fixed History Manager’s stand alone mode
### Plugin updates
Gajim’s URL Image Preview plugin received a fix to prevent issues while trying to generate previews for zero-byte files or corrupted files.
## Changes in python-nbxmpp
A bug has been fixed with RSM count requests ([#120](https://dev.gajim.org/gajim/python-nbxmpp/-/issues/120)), which affected Gajim’s history synchronization.
This fix, and also many improvements concerning Ad-Hoc commands, are included in the new `python-nbxmpp 2.0.3`.
