2.14.12 Released!

We’ve released another bug fix version of Pidgin, version 2.14.12. This release has many random bug fixes so be sure to check out the full ChangeLog below.

You may have noticed we didn’t announce 2.14.11, that’s because this release got spiked as there was an error with a translation with the Windows installer. I tested building the installer before merging translations which was a mistake that I’ll try to avoid in the future.

You can find links to the download from our Install page.
