Description Daniel Dorau 2012-03-15 16:13:04 UTC
It would be nice if Telepathy (and Empathy later on) would support message receipts to make IM more reliable. It looks not too complicated to support.
Comment 1 Will Thompson 2012-10-31 23:48:05 UTC
You're quite right, it wasn't that difficult, particularly since I made the executive decision in the attached branch not to provide a way to disable sending receipts.

This branch will do nothing visible without changes to Empathy, though. Empathy does have support for showing delivery status information when the protocol /guarantees/ success or failure reports for each message. XEP-0184 is not such a protocol, so Empathy will ignore the reports.

Maybe it should do something like WhatsApp, which puts a single tick-mark beside messages which have been delivered and a double tick-mark beside messages which have been read. (A bit of Googling suggests that WhatsApp uses literally this XEP, in fact.)
Comment 2 Will Thompson 2012-11-01 16:04:50 UTC
I've updated this branch to make Gabble actually advertise the cap. (And I also noticed it was missing the cap for jabber:iq:last so added that too.)

Will be in 0.17.2.
