My new favorite IM client Pidgin has been updated (to version 2.0.1). You can go here to download the new packages.

Now, I don’t know what is contained in the new version (and there are no release notes on Sourceforge) or what has been updated or fixed. The developers of Pidgin (formerly GAIM) have long had issues with communicating to their user base. I’ve been trying to keep up with Pidgin’s development on their mailing lists, but even that is hard to keep track of.
