Keep up to date with all things Pidgin, Finch and libpurple


  • 2.14.1 Released!

    So who would have guessed that some stuff would go wrong when we haven’t released in nearly two years? The changes for 2.14.1 are small but important. There were some issues with the Windows installer that made it impossible to install 2.14.0 and the Mercurial revision in the About box was displaying “unknown”. Sorry for the inconvenience that this may have caused! You can find 2.14.1 on SourceForge as well as on Bintray.

  • 2.14.0 Released!

    Well it’s been a while, but we’ve finally released Pidgin 2.14.0. This is a special release for a number of reasons, which we’ll get into below. That said, you can find the source release on SourceForge as well as on Bintray. First of all we moved libgnt, the GLib NCurses Toolkit, to its own repository. It is the user interface library that was created for Finch. We did this for a number of reasons, most notably to let libgnt step out from Pidgin’s shadow and get the attention it deserves as a stand-alone project.

  • Nest Launch

    Greetings, Programs! We’re excited to announce the launch of our brand new website. The new site aims to bring the old website and the wiki from into a single website. Development has been led by Jason Allan who is a new contributor to the project. We haven’t transfered everything over yet, so if you’re looking for something and the search isn’t being helpful, all of the old content is still available at old and developer.
