Pidgin 2.4.1

Posted on Tuesday, April 01 2008 @ 13:49:02 CEST by

Pidgin is a multi-protocol Instant Messaging client that allows you to use all of your IM accounts at once.

  • libpurple
    • Treat AIM Unicode messages as UTF-16 rather than UCS-2; this should have no functional effect, other than continued support on systems which have dropped UCS-2 conversions.
    • Add support for setting buddy icons on Gadu-Gadu (Tomasz Salacinski)
    • Fix a crash when clearing the buddy icon for an account on XMPP
    • Fix a crash during login for some ICQ accounts
    • Prefer more available resources on XMPP when priorities are equal
    • Fix incorrectly marking some Yahoo! contacts as blocked
    • Improved handling of UTF-8 group names on ICQ (beret)
    • Fix a crash when starting if you have a Zephyr account
    • Increase XMPP ping timeout to 120 seconds, to prevent poor network connections from timing out unnecessarily.
    • Don't crash on XMPP forms with empty default values.
    • Fix issues with CHAP authentication for SOCKS5 proxies.
  • Pidgin
    • Remove a workaround for older versions gstreamer that was causing crashes on some non-Linux systems such as HPUX
    • Fix some cases of the conversation input entry area being 1 pixel high
    • Fix for displaying channel & buddy names in conversation window when they have '&' in them
    • Some memory leak fixes, especially in the Text Replacement plugin
    • Rectangular but non-square buddy icons have rounded corners in the buddy list
  • Finch
    • Fix compiling with Glib older than 2.6
    • Ensure existing conversations selected from the 'Send IM' dialog are given focus
    • Move the tooltip on the left of the buddylist if there's not enough room on the right to show it.
