This release has had quite a few updates since the last release about 2 months ago. For people using the group chats this release will include a couple of fixes for the most obvious bugs. Unfortunately there is still a bit of work to get them to work perfectly.
This release also includes support to edit your own vcard thanks to Martyn Russel who provided a patch for this. Ross Burton added a feature that a lot of people have asked for and that is the possibility to resubscribe to a contact if the subscription isn't both ways.
Furthermore there has been a number of smaller bug fixes and a couple of very rare crashes has been found and fixed. I also took some time and fixed a couple of smaller things that makes the entire experience of using Gossip better.
