it would be better, yeah.....but that won't happen.
RB has a lot of users because it came by default in ubuntu/gnome.....otherwise, the number of users would be count on fingers off one hand.
the same <snip> is happening with empathy versus pidgin.
i have a message for all the ubuntu users:
try as much as you can to use only cross platform apps, they are a much better quality.

Saw something come in the form of a gfvs update this morning. Still waiting for a libsoup update though. Kinda is a bummer it took this long to isolate and fix a bug for such a large project. :\
This was an "upstream" fix, that is it was solved for the whole Linux community and not only for Ubuntu. So now a process has to be followed until the fix lands in Ubuntu. Please correct me if I don't describe it well: First it has to go to Debian, and for that it has to follow its own process. Once it is in Debian it has to arrive to Ubuntu, as a new version of libsoup, which will not happen until the next release, since the Debian freeze was met long ago for the current development release.
So in my opinion Ubuntu developers have nothing to do now with the fix not landing sooner here. The delay on fixing this cannot be attributed either to Ubuntu, this was affecting the whole Linux ecosystem.
Catalan Team: Tingueu presents les normes d'or dels fòrums d'Ubuntu: poseu un títol entenedor i apropiat als vostres fils; digueu quina versió i variant d'Ubuntu feu servir i a quina màquina; i què heu provat abans de demanar ajut.
This should be fixed in trusty with libsoup2.4-2.44.1
As far as saucy probably not though it appears 2.4-2.44.1 would work fine
(there is sometimes a short window where some new dev version packages can be installed in prev. release if inclined to try.
Otherwise have a saucy libsoup build scheduled in an RB ppa, will have to test once built though should be ok
