And through all of that, you've never checked if the avahi daemon was running? Your steps to reproduce wouldn't have started it.

Sorry about the lack of clarity. "enable avahi" meant start the service and enable it for autostart with systemctl

Also the "Worked prior to v1.x.x" would clearly point to a functioning Avahi instance.

I can confirm this behaviour, and my avahi-daemon works otherwise.

I'd like to debug the issue, but am not sure how. Gajim and avahi do not seem to talk via dbus.
