Hi, since 0.15 I've noticed one small (visual) change that leads to worse usability (at least for my usual workflow). Having "show offline users" disabled...

Before 0.15, if there are unread messages from offline users, the user was still shown in the roster (dimmed and blinking) so it was easy to know from whom you had pending messages.

After 0.15, those offline users with unread messages aren't shown any more. All you get is the total number of unread messages in the roster "footer" and you've to enable "show offline users" to know from whom they are (I know you can click in the footer and get the messages, but I don't want to do so "blindly").

I really think that the old behavior was, way, way more usable, allowing you to have a reduced list in the roster, with more and better information than in 0.15, so you can decide which messages to read and reply or whatever. Specially noticeable if the number of contacts in huge.

Not sure if the old behavior (show offline users with unread message dimmed and blinking) can be achieved using some conf. setting (I've been looking for it but haven't found anything), or if this describes a regression and 0.14 behavior should be re-applied...

For your consideration, ciao :-)
