Pidgin is an easy to use and free chat client used by millions. Connect to AIM, MSN, Yahoo, and more chat networks all at once.

  • libpurple
    • Fix --disable-avahi to actually disable it in configure, as opposed to just making the warning non-fatal.
    • Fix using GNOME proxy settings properly. (Erik van Pienbroek)
  • IRC
    • Fix parsing of invalid TOPIC messages. (CVE-2009-2703)
  • MSN
    • Sending custom smileys in chats is now supported.
    • Ink messages are now saved when using the HTML logger.

    • Fix connecting to XMPP domains with no SRV records from Pidgin on Windows.
    • Fix typing notifications with Pidgin 2.5.9 or earlier.
    • Fix connecting using BOSH and legacy authentication (XEP-0078).
    • Adding buddies of the form "romeo@…/Resource" are handled properly. In addition, it is no longer possible to add buddies of the form "room@…/User", where room@… is a MUC.
    • Don't crash when receiving "smileyfied" XHTML-IM from clients that don't support bits of binary (ie. when getting an empty <data/> in return)

  • Yahoo!/Yahoo! JAPAN
    • Accounts now have "Use account proxy for SSL connections" option. This option force-overrides the account specific proxy settings for SSL connections only and instead uses the global proxy configuration.

    • Remove IO watches in gnt_quit. (Tomasz Mon)
  • Pidgin
    • Fix the auto-personize functionality in the Buddy List.
