2.14.7 Released!

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.

Yet another minor version of Pidgin has been released, 2.14.7. This release includes a bunch of random fixes for issues that were found by Google OSS-Fuzz.

As far as we can tell, none of these issues are remotely exploitable, but you should update for the memory leak fixes alone.
