  • libgnt 2.14.1 Released

    Today we released a minor version of libgnt, version 2.14.1. This release bumps the minimum required meson version from 0.37.0 to 0.41.0 and fixes an issue where a string could have been truncated. You can find the released files on SourceForge and the official ChangeLog over here.

  • Bintray Sunsetting

    Today JFrog announced that they will be sunsetting Bintray. You can read the announcement here. Overall this doesn’t affect us too much, but this does mean that we will be relying on SourceForge for our downloads going forward. Also, we have updated previous articles that were pointing to Bintray to mention this update. A few ideas have been thrown around like using IPFS, but due to our current timelines we can’t afford to spend a lot of time investigating and deploying new solutions.

  • 2.14.1 Released!

    ** Updated 2021-02-04 to strike out Bintray mentions as they have announced that they are sunsetting it. See Bintray Sunsetting** 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”.

  • 2.14.0 Released!

    ** Updated 2021-02-04 to strike out Bintray mentions as they have announced that they are sunsetting it. See Bintray Sunsetting** 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.

  • 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 developer.pidgin.im 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.
