Pidgin 2.10.1 is the current version.
If you're running to the specific issue that the the patched version
attempts to work around (http://developer.pidgin.im/ticket/14743 -
related to being in large IRC channels), there is not currently a
released fix for the issue.
If that ticket doesn't describe the issues you're seeing, then you
probably need to get a debug log and file a ticket
(http://d.pidgin.im/wiki/TipsForBugReports).
