Pidgin, the instant messaging client formerly known as Gaim, has — after nearly 2 years in development — released version 2.0.0, a huge milestone for the project. You, dear Adium user, have been seeing the fruits of the Pidgin team’s labor towards 2.0.0 since Adium 1.0, as we’ve been utilizing cutting-edge builds of libpurple, the library which powers Pidgin, the text-based client Finch, and Adium.
If you or your friends are using Linux or Windows, be sure to check out this new (and first) release of Pidgin and Finch, the “Pimpin’ Penguin IM Clients That’re Good for the Soul.” Mazel tov to the Pidgin team on their release!
p.s. The Pidgin project, always an ideological brother of Adium’s, is even more so now that its mascot is of the avian variety 🙂
