Pidgin 2.1.1

Posted on Tuesday, August 21 2007 @ 11:04:16 CEST by

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


Sean: Continuing our schedule of frequent releases, Pidgin 2.1.1 is out. In it, we've addressed a lot of UI issues from our experimental new changes introduced in 2.1.0, and gave a lot of attention to Yahoo! and Bonjour. Thanks to everyone who contributed.

Luke: We have reworked some parts of the conversation windows in response to user comments. We did not quite reach 100 tickets closed this release, so a fair few will role over again. Still, we are slowly but surely working our way through the reported bugs. Many thanks to everyone who has helped with tracking down the various issues, testing fixes, and getting patches in.

Tim: Sean finally got me to fix some of the buddy list bugs with Yahoo! when in version 15 mode. So now we have some Yahoo! to MSN support, which is kind of nice. Looks like some others have been contributing to Yahoo! while I've been AWOL, so many thanks to them.
