Ability to edit the conference chat room subject, in IMCOM would be
//subject ziwt "How'd e' do that Mugsy?"

Or in gabber 0.8.8-4 edit the subject area. Seems you cannot do this in
Gabber2 (1.9.4-1 at least)

        Hi my name is greg, I have been a Jabber server maintainer for 3
now notice my name is not Capitalized. I go back and edit before
sending, replace the g with a G then press enter this is what the
message displays like:
        Hi my name is G
        reg, I have been a Jabber server maintainer for 3 years

Hope this is clear enough.

The most needed things are JUD browsing, REAL message handling
preferences, logging really nicely like 0.8.8-4 does, multiple
conference windows to different servers or just different chat-rooms on
the same server, as well as user data editing and so on. Jabber Message
Rules absolutely needed. Invites to other users, full message history,
GPG integration, basically anything in gabber 0.8.8-4, except the
docklet thinger which hasn't really worked since GNOME2.x

BTW, I did re-install gabber2 (1.9.4-1 from experimental) and it blew
chunks big time. See my other message earlier today.

Most of all, I would like to be able to use gabber as an admin interface
for Jabber rather than IMCOM... not that IMCOM isn't any good... just it
sticks out like a sore thumb on a pleasant GUI desktop.
