[Release] Pidgin v2.5.3


Recommended Posts

Pidgin v2.5.3

Pidgin is an instant messaging program for Windows, Linux, BSD, and other Unixes. You can talk to your friends using AIM, ICQ, Jabber/XMPP, MSN Messenger, Yahoo!, Bonjour, Gadu-Gadu, IRC, Novell GroupWise Messenger, QQ, Lotus Sametime, SILC, SIMPLE, and Zephyr.

Pidgin can log in to multiple accounts on multiple IM networks simultaneously. This means that you can be chatting with friends on AIM, talking to a friend on Yahoo Messenger, and sitting in an IRC channel all at the same time.

Pidgin supports many features of the various networks, such as file transfer, away messages, and typing notification. It also goes beyond that and provides many unique features. A few popular features are Buddy Pounces, which give the ability to notify you, send a message, play a sound, or run a program when a specific buddy goes away, signs online, or returns from idle; and plugins, consisting of text replacement, a buddy ticker, extended message notification, iconify on away, spell checking, tabbed conversations, and more.

Pidgin runs on a number of platforms, including Windows, Linux, and Qtopia (Sharp Zaurus and iPaq). Looking for Pidgin for OS-X? Try Adium!

Pidgin integrates well with GNOME 2 and KDE 3.1's system tray, as well as Windows's own system tray. This allows you to work with Pidgin without requiring the buddy list window to be open at all times.

Changelog from Beta4


Sean: Another release in our endless stream in betas. This one's

pretty awesome; and it fixes major bugs introduced in previous




* Significant improvements to the reliability of

connection detection code from Beta 4, especially

for users of Windows 2000 and Windows Vista, and

certain XP users.

* The preferences dialog has been reorganized slightly,

with a new "Interface" tab to reduce the clutter in the

"Conversations" tab.

* The tray icon is now configurable. Users can disable

the icon entirely, or configure it to show only when

messages are waiting.

* A preference has been added to play sounds only when

unavailable, in addition to always or only when available.

* Added the ability to drag and drop icons on buddies in

the buddy list to override the buddy icon shown there.

(This does not replace the icon shown in the tooltip.)

* QQ protocol support is now available for Windows Gaim.

* The Windows Gaim Tcl plugin loader has been improved to

reduce problems caused by having cygwin in the PATH.

* The text replacement plugin has been fixed to handle

words containing apostrophes properly again.

* Added the ability for gaim text users to map actions to

keystrokes, and fixed many other keymapping related bugs.

* Many other stability and UI improvements for gaim text.

* Several improvements have been made to DBUS support to

improve its stability and reliability.

* Several compilation fixes for users of Solaris.

* Several translations have been updated: Albanian,

Burmese (Myanmar), Chinese (Traditional), English

(British), Esperanto, Estonian, Galego, German, Persian,
