  • Add ability to deregister nickname when closing a MUC by setting auto_register_muc_nickname to 'unregister'.

Breaking Changes

The afterMessageBodyTransformed and beforeMessageBodyTransformed events now has a different signatures. When leaving a MUC, the message history is deleted. This means that decrypted OMEMO messages are gone and cannot be recovered on that device. See muc_clear_messages_on_leave.

Removed events:

  • bookmarkViewsInitialized
  • chatBoxInsertedIntoDOM
  • contactStatusMessageChanged
  • messageSend (use sendMessage instead)
  • rosterGroupsFetched

The chatBoxClosed, chatBoxMaximized and chatBoxMinimized events now have the model as payload and not the view.

The api.chatviews and api.roomviews API groupings and methods have been removed. The original "views" don't really exist anymore, the UI is now composed web components which should update reactively based on changes made on the models.

7.0.6 (unreleased)

  • #2500: Wrong assignment in OMEMO code

7.0.5 (2021-03-16)

  • #2381: Converse does not reflect the browser language

7.0.4 (2020-12-09)

Otherwise if an endpoint was passed in with converse.initialize, then that endpoint's protocol is (potentially wrongly) used.

7.0.3 (2020-12-02)

  • Bugfix: null inserted by emoji picker and can't switch between skintones

7.0.2 (2020-11-23)

  • Updated translations: de, nb, gl, tr
  • Still more necessary files not included in the 7.0.1 NPM package, causing Module not found errors.

7.0.0 (2020-11-18)

Note for plugin authors: configuration settings should now be accessed via _converse.api.settings.get and not directly on the _converse object. Soon we'll deprecate the latter, so prepare now.

Breaking changes

  • The debug configuration option has been replaced with loglevel.

  • In contrast to sessionStorage and localStorage, IndexedDB is an asynchronous database. A lot of code that relied on database access to be synchronous had to be updated to work with asynchronous access via promises.

  • In order to add support for XEP-0156, the XMPP connection needs to be created only once we know the JID of the user that's logging in. This means that the connectionInitialized event now fires much later than before. Plugins that rely on connectionInitialized being triggered before the user's JID has been provided will need to be updated.

  • The following API methods now return promises:

    • _converse.api.chats.get
    • _converse.api.chats.create
    • _converse.api.rooms.get
    • _converse.api.rooms.create
    • _converse.api.roomviews.close
  • Changes the events:

    • The chatBoxInitialized event now triggers when a _converse.ChatBox (not the view) is opened.
    • Renamed the old chatBoxInitialized to chatBoxViewInitialized and trigger only for ChatBoxView instances.
    • Renamed chatRoomOpened event to chatRoomViewInitialized
    • The order of certain events have now changed: statusInitialized is now triggered after initialized and connected and reconnected.
  • _converse.api.chats.get() now only returns one-on-one chats, not the control box or headline notifications.

  • The show_only_online_users setting has been removed.

  • is now and instead of taking an integer for the type, "info", "warn" or "error" should be passed in.

  • The converse-headline plugin has been split up into converse-headlines and converse-headlines-view.

5.0.5 (2019-11-20)

  • Prevent editing of sent file uploads.
  • #1089: When filtering the roster for online users, show all non-offline users.
  • #1733: New message notifications for a minimized chat stack on top of each other
  • #1757: Chats are hidden behind the controlbox on mobile
  • #1760: Private messages no longer received after websocket reconnect

5.0.4 (2019-10-08)

  • New config option allow_message_corrections which, if set to last, limits editing of sent messages to the last message sent.
  • Bugfix: Don't treat every duplicate message ID as a message correction; since some clients don't use globally unique ID's this causes false positives.
  • Bugfix: process stanzas from mam one-by-one in order to correctly process message receipts
  • #1712: TypeError: plugin._features is not a function
  • #1714: Don't notify the user in case we're receiving a message delivery receipt only
  • #1739: New config option assets_path which lets you set the path from which "chunks" are loaded.

5.0.3 (2019-09-13)

  • Emit chatBoxFocused and chatBoxBlurred events for emoji picker input
  • SECURITY FIX: Reject unencapsulated forwarded messages, since we don't support XEP-0297 on its own

5.0.2 (2019-09-11)

  • po translations files are now loaded via Webpack. As a result the locales_url config option is now removed given that the path to the locale JSON files is now determined by the webpack config and can't be changed at runtime.
  • The JSON representing emojis is now fetched asynchronously as a separate file converse.emojis.js.
  • Webpack is now configured with a publicPath set to /dist/. This is necessary so that chunks (such as the emojis and locales JSON files) can be fetched asynchronously. This means that all your assets need to be served at /dist. If you need to set a different path, you'll need to set publicPath in webpack.config.js to your preferred path and then rebuild all assets (e.g. make dist).
  • Use listenTo to avoid memory leaks when views get removed.
  • SECURITY FIX: Ignore MAM chat messages not sent from yourself
  • #1692 Bugfix: TypeError: oldest_message is undefined
  • #1704: SECURITY FIX: Impersonation by misusage of groupchat carbons
  • #1705: Bugfix: this.roomspanel is undefined after hibernating

5.0.1 (2019-08-14)

  • Add a new GUI for moderator actions. You can trigger it by entering /modtools in a MUC.
  • Reconnect if the server doesn't respond to a ping within 10 seconds.
  • Don't query for MAM MUC messages before the cached messages have been restored (another cause of duplicate messages).
  • Show an error message and option to retry when fetching of the MAM archive times out
  • Bugfix: TypeError: o.getAttribute is not a function converse-chatview.js (can cause messages to not appear).
  • #1679: Room invitation fails with singleton and random server assigned room name

  • BOSH support has been moved to a plugin.
  • Support for XEP-0410 to check whether we're still present in a room

  • Don't restore a BOSH session without knowing the JID
  • In the /help menu, only show allowed commands
  • Message deduplication bugfixes and improvements
  • Continuously retry (in 2s intervals) to fetch login credentials (via credentials_url) in case of failure

API changes

4.2.0 (2019-04-04)

Note: This release introduces a hard requirement on MAM:2, specifically the requirement that the MAM archive ID matches the XEP-0359 stanza-id. Patches intended to make Converse work with MAM:1 will cause problems and unexpected behaviour due to the above requirement, which is not met with MAM:1. This will affect OpenFire users who use the monitoring plugin version 1.7.0 and below. You're advised to stay on Converse version 4.1.2 until an update to that plugin has been released.

Architectural changes

  • Attribute error when empty IQ stanza is returned for vCard query

Security fixes

  • CVE-2018-6591: Don't allow PEP bookmarks if pubsub#publish-options is not advertised by the server.

    In previous versions of converse.js, bookmarks sent to servers that don't support pubsub#publish-options were visible to all your contacts, even though they should be kept private. This is due to those servers simply ignoring the pubsub#publish-options directive and converse.js not checking first whether pubsub#publish-options is supported before setting bookmarks via PEP.

    More info here:

New features

  • In the chat heading, two avatars sometimes get rendered.
  • Refetch the roster from the server after reconnection. From the perspective of the XMPP server, this is an entirely new login, and therefore as per RFC-6121 the roster SHOULD be queried, making the client an "interested resource". Otherwise connected contacts might not get your presence updates.
  • The way the archive ID of a MAM message is specified, has changed. See
  • Fixed error building DOM toggle_chats.html span.unread-message-count class attribute
  • Bugfix. In a MUC the /help command didn't render properly.

  • MUC chatroom occupants are now sorted alphabetically and according to their roles.

Technical changes

  • Converse.js now includes a Virtual DOM via backbone.vdomview and uses it to render various views.

This results in a much smaller filesize but means that the translations you want to provide need to be available. See the locales_url configuration setting for more info.

New configuration settings
