We've released another bug fix version of Pidgin, version 2.14.9. This
release has many random bug fixes so be sure to check out the full ChangeLog
below.
Items to note are that the dictionary downloads in the Windows installer have
finally been fixed, as well as IRC file transfers on Windows.
There is a minor security fix as well that was fixed by removing our support
for the `_xmppconnect` DNS TXT record which has been deemed insecure for a very
long time.
You can find links to the download from our
[Install page]({{< ref "/install" >}}).
Security:
* Remove `_xmppconnect` support. ({{% review 1357 %}}) ([CVE-2022-26491]({{< ref "/about/security/advisories/cve-2022-26491" >}}))
