Pidgin 2.5.2

Posted on Tuesday, October 21 2008 @ 23:51:22 CEST by

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

  • libpurple
    • Fixed a crash on removing a custom buddy icon on a buddy.
    • Fixed a crash caused by certain self-signed SSL certificates.
    • Enable a number of strong ciphers which were previously disabled when using NSS. (Thanks to Marcus Trautwig.)
  • Pidgin
    • The status selector now saves your message when changing status.
    • Fix a case where a conversation window could close unexpectedly.
    • A mute sounds option has been added to the preferences window to help with discoverability. CTRL+S is no longer bound to mute.
    • Added ability to change the color of visited links (using the theme control plugin, or setting the color in ~/.gtkrc-2.0)
    • Fix a crash occuring when a custom smiley is deleted and re-added and used in an open conversation after being re-added.
  • Finch
    • A new 'Nested Grouping' option in the 'Grouping' plugin. Group hierarchies are defined by the '/' character in the group names.
    • A bug was fixed where some key-bindings wouldn't work with some TERMs (e.g. xterm-color, screen-linux etc.)
  • MSN
    • Operations (such as moving to a new group) on contacts that were added in the same session should now complete correctly, and not cause synchronization errors at next login.
    • Minor fixes to login process during a server transfer.
    • Restored the "Has You" feature to the MSN protocol tooltips.
    • ADL 205/214/etc errors should no longer prevent login.
  • XMPP
    • Sending and receiving custom smileys using the specification in XEP-0231 (bits of binary) and XHTML-IM
  • Yahoo
    • Only send a Ping once every hour. This prevents the account from being disconnected from the server periodically.
