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.
