    Pidgin 2.4.3 Released!

    Pidgin folks has just released a fresh new version! 2.4.3

    Here the changelog:
    libpurple:
    * Yahoo! Japan now uses UTF-8, matching the behavior of official client and restoring compatibility with the web messenger (Yusuke Odate)
    * Setting your buddy icon once again works for Yahoo! accounts.
    * Fixes in the Yahoo! protocol to prevent a double free, crashes on aliases, and alias functionality
    * Fix crashes in the bonjour protocol
    * Always use UTF-8 for Yahoo! (#5973)
    * Fix a crash when the given jabber id is invalid.
    * Make the IRC "unknown message" debugging messages UTF-8 safe.
    * Fix connecting to ICQ
    * Fix a memleak when handling jabber xforms.

    Pidgin:
    * Include the send button plugin in the win32 build
    * Various memory leak fixes

    If you're using Hardy, the easiest thing you can do is download it from www.getdeb.net here: http://getdeb.net/app/Pidgin

    If you want to compile, as always, download the source code, then:

    Code:
    ./configure
    make
    sudo make install
    Good luck!

    By the way, if you download it from getdeb, don't forget to uninstall the current version first!

    yeah, I heard that ICQ was blocking connections, is this a fix to that?

    The question was about it addressing the new problem, or an earlier one.

    I believe it won't. The update will be in the next Ubuntu release.

    And on a side note, is there a .deb for amd64?

    It won't be integrated in (Hardy) At least if is not discovered some serious security bug. But it'll be integrated in Intrepid (probably a newer version than this)
