Simon McVittie reports:

This release fixes a man-in-the-middle attack.

If you use an unencrypted connection to a "legacy Jabber" (pre-XMPP) server, this version of Gabble will not connect until you make one of these configuration changes:

. upgrade the server software to something that supports XMPP 1.0; or

. use an encrypted "old SSL" connection, typically on port 5223 (old-ssl); or

. turn off "Encryption required (TLS/SSL)" (require-encryption).
