Pidgin 2.1.0

Posted on Tuesday, July 31 2007 @ 13:07:30 CEST by

Sean: This release took a bit longer than 3 weeks, but boy is it worth it! We're beginning to experiment with new UI concepts and this release features a largely re-designed conversation window. We've closed 150 tickets for this release; much thanks go to all the developers, translators, and testers who made this possible.

Ka-Hing: Sean said no one else NEWS'ed, so I figure I should.

  • Core changes to allow UIs to use second-granularity for scheduling. Pidgin and Finch, which use the glib event loop, were changed to use g_timeout_add_seconds() on glib >= 2.14 when possible. This allows glib to better group our longer timers to increase power efficiency. (Arjan van de Ven with Intel Corporation)
  • No longer linkifies screennames containing @ signs in join/part notifications in chats
  • With the HTML logger, images in conversations are now saved. NOTE: Saved images are not yet displayed when loading logs.
  • Added support for QIP logs to the Log Reader plugin (Michael Shkutkov)
  • Ensure only one copy of Pidgin is running with a given configuration directory. The net effect of this is that trying to start Pidgin a second time will raise the buddy list. (Gabriel Schulhof)
  • Undo capability in the conversation window
  • The formatting toolbar has been reorganized to be more concise.
  • A new status area has been added to the top of conversations to provide additional detail about the buddy, including buddy icon, protocol and status message.
  • Show idle times in the buddy list as days, hours, seconds
  • There's support for workspaces now (details in the manpage)
  • There's a new custom window manager, Irssi
  • Some improvements for tab-completion, tooltip and the password entries
  • Some bugs regarding search results fixed
  • A new DBus-script to create a docklet for finch
  • Support for showing empty groups in the buddy list (Eric Polino)
