Pidgin 2.7.6

Posted on Tuesday, November 23 2010 @ 00:01:08 CET by

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.


* General:
o Included Microsoft Internet Authority 2010 and Microsoft Secure Server Authority 2010 intermediate CA certificates to our bundle. This fixes the "Unable to validate certificate" error for omega.contacts.msn.com. (#12906)

* Pidgin:
o Avoid a use-after-free race condition in the media code (when there's an error reported by GStreamer). (#12806, Jakub Adam)

* AIM and ICQ:
o SSL option has been changed to a tri-state menu with choices for "Don't Use Encryption", "Use Encryption if Available", and "Require Encryption".
o Fix some possible clientLogin URL issues introduced in version 2.7.5.
o Don't show a ": Ok" connection error when using clientLogin.
o Cleaned up some debug output for improved readability.

* MSN:
o Added support for MSNP16, including Multiple Points of Presence (MPOP) which allows multiple simultaneous sign-ins. (#8247)
o Added extended capabilities support (none implemented).
o Merged the work done on the Google SoC (major rewrite of SLP code)
o Reworked the data transfer architecture. (SlpArchitecture)
o Lots of little changes.
o Don't process zero-length DC messages. (#12660)
o Fixed a bunch of memory leaks.
o Prevent a use-after-free condition.

o Avoid a double-free in the Google Relay (V/V) code.
o Avoid double error message when failing a file transfer. (#12757)
o Password-related information is printed out for SASL authentication when the PURPLE_UNSAFE_DEBUG environment variable is set.
o Authentication mechanisms can now be added by UI's or other plugins with some work. This is outside the API/ABI rules! (#12715)
o Fixed a few printf("%s", NULL) crashes for broken OSes.

* Windows-Specific Changes:
o Build the Pidgin Theme Editor plugin (finally).
o Untarring (for themes) now works for non-ASCII destination paths.
