Notice for Windows users: We are aware of an issue with the installer failing to download the dictionaries used for spellchecking. We are currently working on a fix and hope to have this resolved as soon as possible.
Another minor version of Pidgin has been released, 2.14.4. It has been many years since we were able to get three releases out to our users in such a short amount of time (less than a month!), something that we are certainly very happy to see and hope you are as well.
The complete changelog for this release is the following:
LT_LIB_Mto find the math library. This should simplify things for various distros including the BSD’s. (Review 608) (and, Justin Lechner)
purple-url-handlerto have a Python 3 shebang. (Review 609) (Richard Laager)
$prefix/share/metainfo. (Review 607) (Lars Wendler)
You can find 2.14.4 on SourceForge.
We hope everyone enjoys this release and the fixes it brings. Remember that if you have any questions or comments we have a variety of channels where you can reach out to us.
