+ Yahoo JAPAN accounts.
+ * Fix file transfers that get stuck with "Waiting for transfer to
+ begin".
+
+version 2.7.2 (07/21/2010):

+ * Make the search dialog unobtrusive in the conversation window (by
+ making it look and behave like the search dialog in Firefox)
+ * The Recent Log Activity sort method for the Buddy List now
+ distinguishes between no activity and a small amount of activity
+ in the distant past. (Greg McNew)
+ * Added a menu set mood globally for all mood-supporting accounts
+ (currently XMPP and ICQ).
+ * Default binding of Ctrl+Shift+v to 'Paste as Plain Text' in

+ "drawing-buddy" signal. (Daniele Ricci, Andrea Piccinelli)
+ * Be more accommodating when scaling down large images for use as
+ buddy icons.
+ * The 'Message Timestamp Formats' plugin allows changing the timestamp
+ format from the timestamps' context menu in conversation log.

+ * Minimum requirement for external libgadu is now also 1.9.0-rc2.
+
+ AIM and ICQ:
+ * X-Status (Custom ICQ status icon) support. Since most of the icons

+ Accounts->ICQ Account menu. (Andrew Ivanov, Tomáš Kebert,
+ Yuriy Yevgrafov, and trac users bob007, salieff, and nops)
+ * Allow setting and displaying icons between 1x1 and 100x100 pixels for
+ ICQ. Previously only icons between 48x48 and 52x64 were allowed.

+ * When sending data using in-band-bytestreams, interpret the block-size
+ attribute as the size of the BASE64-encoded representation of the

+ etc.), cache based per JID when the CID is not a valid hash (as
+ specified by the BoB XEP).

+ minutes). This fixes an issue with Openfire disconnecting a
+ libpurple-baesd client that has just been quiet for about 6
+ minutes.
+ * Only support Google Talk's JID Domain Discovery extension
+ (allowing a user to log in with "@gmail.com" or "@googlemail.com"
+ interchangeably) for those two domains. This change was made
+ due to interoperability issues with some BOSH Connection Managers
+ and namespaced attributes.
+
+ Yahoo/Yahoo JAPAN:
+ * Attempt to better handle transparent proxies interfering with
+ HTTP-based login.
+ * Fix handling of P2P packets, thus fixing the loss of some messages.
+ * Retrieve the pager server address from Yahoo!'s servers directly.

+ (Millennium Edition), and Windows NT 4.0 longer supported due to GTK+
+ requirements changes.
+ * Crash Report files (pidgin.RPT) are now generated in the ~/.purple
+ directory instead of the installation directory.
+ * NSS SSL Library upgraded to 3.12.5 (thanks to Berke Viktor)
+ * GtkSpell upgraded to 2.0.16, changing the spellchecking backend to
+ enchant. This means that myspell and hunspell (OpenOffice)
+ dictionaries can be used (previous versions' aspell dictionaries
+ will not work).
+
+version 2.6.6 (02/18/2010):
+ libpurple:
+ * Fix 'make check' on OS X. (David Fang)

+ to be improperly converted to XHTML.
+ * Set "controlling-mode" correctly when initializing a media session.

+ * When looking up DNS records, use the type of record returned by the
+ server (instead of the type we asked for) to determine how to process
+ the record.
+ * Fix an issue with parsing XML attributes that contain "&lt;br&gt;".
+ See ChangeLog.API for more details.
+
+ General:
+ * Correctly disable all missing dependencies when using the
+ --disable-missing-dependencies option. (Gabriel Schulhof)
+
+ Gadu-Gadu:
+ * Fix display of avatars after a server-side change. (Krzysztof

+ SLP message. (Discovered by Fabian Yamaguchi)
+ * File transfer requests will no longer cause a crash if you delete the
+ file before the other side accepts.
+ * Received files will no longer hold an extra lock after completion,
+ meaning they can be moved or deleted without complaints from your OS.
+ * Buddies who sign in from a second location will no longer cause an
+ unnecessary chat window to open.
+ * Support setting an animated GIF as a buddy icon.
+ * Numerous code cleanups and memory savings.
+
+ MySpace:
+ * Fix a leak and crash when retrieving buddy icons.
+
+ XMPP:
+ * Less likely to send messages to a contact's idle/inactive resource.
+ Previously, if a message was received from a specific resource,
+ responses would be sent to that resource until either it went offline
+ or a message is received from another resource. Now, messages are
+ sent to the bare JID upon receipt of any presence change from the
+ contact.
+ * Added support for the SCRAM-SHA-1 SASL mechanism. This is only
+ available when built without Cyrus SASL support.
+ * When getting info on a domain-only (server) JID, show uptime
+ (when given by the result of the "last query") and don't show status
+ as offline.
+ * Fix getting info on your own JID.
+ * Wrap XHTML messages in <p>, as described in XEP-0071, for
+ compatibility with some clients.
+ * Don't do an SRV lookup for a STUN server associated with the account
+ if one is already set globally in prefs.
+ * Don't send custom smileys larger than the recommended maximum object
+ size specified in the BoB XEP. This prevents a client from being
+ disconnected by servers that dislike overly-large stanzas.
+ * Fix receiving messages without markup over an Openfire BOSH
+ connection (forcibly put the stanzas in the jabber:client namespace).
+ * The default value for the file transfer proxies is automatically
+ updated when an account connects, if it is still the old (broken)
+ default (from 'proxy.jabber.org' to 'proxy.eu.jabber.org').
+ * Fix an issue where libpurple created duplicate buddies if the roster
+ contains a buddy in two groups that differ only by case
+ (e.g. "XMPP" and "xmpp") (or not at all).
+
+ Yahoo:
+ * Don't send <span> and </span> tags. (Fartash Faghri)
+ * Support PingBox. PingBoxes will appear as pbx/PingBoxName. (Kartik
+ Mohta)
+
+ Pidgin:
+ * Fix CVE-2010-0423, a denial of service attack due to the parsing
+ of large numbers of smileys. (Discovered by Antti Hayrynen)
+ * Correctly size conversation and status box entries when the
+ interior-focus style property is diabled. (Gabriel Schulhof)
+ * Correctly handle a multiline text field being required in a
+ request form. (Thanks to Florian Zeitz for finding this problem)
+ * Search friends by email-addresses in the buddy list. (Luoh Ren-Shan)
+ * Allow dropping an image on Custom Smiley window to add a new one.
+ * Prompt for confirmation when clearing a whiteboard (doodle) session.
+ (Kartik Mohta)
+ * Use the "hand" cursor when hovering over usernames in chat history to
+ indicate that the username is an actionable item.
+ * Double-clicking usernames in chat history will open an IM with that
+ user.
+ * Put an icon on the "Filter" button in the debug window.
+ * Don't treat "/messages/like/this " as commands.
+ * Explicitly mark user interaction when inserting smilies from the
+ toolbar so "Undo" correctly removes these smilies.
+ * Clicking "New" or "Saved" in the status selector menu while typing a
+ status message no longer keeps the status entry area stuck in "typing"
+ mode forever.
+ * Show tooltips for ellipsized conversation tabs. On older systems,
+ tooltips will show for all tabs.
+ * The File Transfers and Debug Window windows are no longer created as
+ dialogs. These windows should now have minimize buttons in many
+ environments in which they were previously missing
+ (including Windows).
+ * Smiley themes with Windows line endings no longer cause theme
+ descriptions not to be displayed in the theme selector.
+
+ Finch:
+ * Fix CVE-2010-0420, a possible remote crash when handling chat room
+ buddy names.
+ * Rebindable 'move-first' and 'move-last' actions for tree widgets. So
+ it is possible to jump to the first or last entry in the buddy list
+ (and other such lists) by pressing home or end key (defaults)
+ respectively.
+
+version 2.6.5 (01/08/2010):
+ libpurple:

+
+ AIM and ICQ:
+ * Messages from some mobile clients are no longer displayed as
+ Chinese characters (broken in 2.6.4)

+ folks themselves (MXit Lifestyle (Pty) Ltd.)
+
+ General:
+ * New 'plugins' sub-command to 'debug' command (i.e. '/debug plugins')
+ to announce the list of loaded plugins (in both Finch and Pidgin).
+ * Always rejoin open chats after an account reconnects.
+
+ AIM and ICQ:

+ us. Users of older versions may need to re-set their friendly name
+ as it has probably been reset.

+ * Fix a crash when adding a buddy without an '@'.
+ * Don't show the option to send a file to a buddy if we know for certain
+ they don't support any file transfer method supported by libpurple.

+
+ Yahoo:

+ * Add a hold button to the media window.
+ * Fix a bug where the conversation backlog stops scrolling in a very
+ busy chat room.

+ instead of our own (hidden) tooltip_delay pref. If you had
+ previously changed that pref, add a line like this to
+ ~/.purple/gtkrc-2.0 (where 500 is the timeout (in ms) you want):
+ gtk-tooltip-timeout = 500

+version 2.4.2 (05/17/2008):
+ https://developer.pidgin.im/query?status=closed&milestone=2.4.2
+ libpurple:
+ * In MySpaceIM, messages from spambots are discarded (Justin Williams)

+ * IRC now displays ban lists in-channel for joined channels.
+ * Fixed a bug where the list of loaded plugins would get removed when

+ (fixes a problem with litter in the channel user list).
+ * IRC no longer crashes on /list on servers which erroneously omit
+ RPL_LISTSTART.
+ * Update the NetworkManager support to use D-Bus directly, instead of
+ libnm-glib. Hopefully it's stable now. It will now compile by
+ default if you have D-Bus support and NetworkManager.h. (Elliott
+ Sales de Andrade)
+ * MSN buddy list synchronization is now more forgiving, only asking
+ about buddies who have disappeared completely from the server list
+ and not those that have simply moved groups.
+ * IRC will now try to append 1-9 to your nick if it is in use, instead
+ of substituting the last character with 1-9 where possible.
+ * Bonjour buddies will be saved persistently if they're moved out of
+ the "Bonjour" group. (Eion Robb)
+
+ Pidgin:
+ * The typing notification in the conversation history can be disabled or
+ customized (font, color etc.) in .gtkrc-2.0.
+ * Added a plugin (not installed by default) which adds a Send button
+ back to the conversation window. People without physical keyboards

+ * The settings of a chat (e.g. Handle in an XMPP chat, or Exchange in
+ an AIM chat) can be edited from its context menu in the buddy list.
+ * Add a "Present conversation window" preference to the Message
+ Notification plugin; the "Raise conversation window" option does not
+ unminimize windows or draw attention to them when they are on other
+ workspaces--the "Present" option should.
+ * Add a preference to set Escape as the keyboard shortcut for closing
+ the conversation window.
+ * Add an option in the context menu to disable smileys in the selected
+ text in the conversation history/log viewer. This should help people
+ who regularly paste code in conversations.
+ * Add a preference to choose the minimum size of the text input area in
+ lines.
+ * Moved the "Local alias" field in the Modify Account dialog to be below
+ the "User Options" heading on the "Basic" tab.
+ * Number of room occupants is now shown in chat tooltips where possible
+
+ General:
+ * The configure script now dies on more absent dependencies. The
+ --disable-xxx arguments to configure can be used to bypass unneeded
+ dependencies. This will also cause the configure script to die if an
+ --enable-xxx option is used and the dependencies it requires are
+ missing.
+ * The Evolution integration plugin must now be explicitly enabled. Use
+ the --enable-gevolution argument to configure to enable it.
+ * The Contact Availability Prediction plugin must now be explicitly
+ enabled. Use the --enable-cap argument to configure to enable it.
+
+ Finch:
+ * New default binding ctrl+x to open context menus.

+ https://developer.pidgin.im/query?status=closed&milestone=2.4.1

+
+ Pidgin:
+ * Added the ability to theme conversation name colors (red and blue)
+ through your GTK+ theme, and exposed those theme settings to the
+ Pidgin GTK+ Theme Control plugin (Dustin Howett)
+ * Fixed having multiple alias edit areas in the infopane (Elliott Sales
+ de Andrade)
+ * Save the conversation "Enable Logging" option per-contact (Moos
+ Heintzen)
+ * Typing notifications are now shown in the conversation area
+
+ Finch:
+ * Color is used in the buddylist to indicate status, and the conversation
+ window to indicate various message attributes. Look at the sample gntrc
+ file in the man page for details.
+ * The default keybinding for dump-screen is now M-D and uses a file
+ request dialog. M-d will properly delete-forward-word, and M-f has been
+ fixed to imitate readline's behavior.
+ * New bindings alt+tab and alt+shift+tab to help navigating between the
+ higlighted windows (details on the man page).
+ * Recently signed on (or off) buddies blink in the buddy list.
+ * New action 'Room List' in the action list can be used to get the list of

+ and the menu for the buddy list.
+ * Fixed a bug preventing finch working on x86_64
+
+version 2.3.1 (12/7/2007):
+ https://developer.pidgin.im/query?status=closed&milestone=2.3.1

+ next release.
+
+ * Fixed a number of MSN bugs introduced in 2.3.0, resolving problems
+ connecting to MSN and random local display name changes

+ have been fixed until this release (2.3.0).
+
+ libpurple:
+ * Real usernames are now shown in the system log.
+ * We now honor a PURPLE_DISABLE_DEPRECATED define to allow plugins to
+ catch deprecated functions earlier rather than later.
+ * Thanks to a patch from Intel, the Bonjour prpl now supports file
+ transfers using XEP-0096 and XEP-0065. This should enable file
+ transfers between libpurple clients and Gajim clients, but will not
+ work with iChat or Adium as they use a different file transfer
+ implementation.
+ * XMPP password changes that return errors no longer cause the saved
+ password to be changed.
+ * XMPP file transfer support has been enhanced to support sending
+ files through a proxy when the server supports discovering a
+ a bytestream proxy. This should make file transfers much more
+ reliable. The next release will add support for manually specifying
+ a proxy when the server doesn't advertise one.
+
+ Pidgin:
+ * If a plugin says it can't be unloaded, we now display an error and
+ remove the plugin from the list of saved plugins so it won't load
+ at the next startup. Previously, we were ignoring this case, which
+ could lead to crashes.
+ * Mark dialog windows as transient for appropriate parent windows to
+ help window managers do the right thing (Gabriel Schulhof)
+ * Connection errors are now reported in mini-dialogs inside the buddy
+ list, rather than as buttons in the buddy list and with dialog
+ boxes. If several accounts are disabled when you sign on elsewhere,

+ * Added tooltips to the Room List window to show full topics
+ * Added buttons in preferences to access GNOME network and browser
+ preferences configuration dialogs when running under GNOME
+ * If you alias a buddy to an alias that is already present within
+ a particular group, we now offer to merge the buddies into the
+ same contact.
+ * A music emblem is now displayed in the buddy list for a buddy if we
+ know she is listening to some soothing music.
+ * Added a 'Move to' menu in buddy list context menu for moving buddies
+ to other groups as an alternative to dragging.
+ * Group headings are now marked via an underline instead of a
+ different color background.
+ * It is now possible to mark a chat on your buddy list as "Persistent"
+ so you do not leave the chat when the window or tab is closed.
+ * The auto-join option for chats is now listed in the "Add Chat"
+ dialog along with the new persistence option.
+ * Closing an IM no longer immediately closes your conversation. It
+ will now remain active for a short time so that if the conversation
+ resumes, the history will be retained. A preference has been added
+ to toggle this behavior.
+ * The "Smiley" menu has been moved to the top-level of the toolbar.
+ * Pidgin's display is now saved with the command line for session
+ restoration. (David Mohr)
+ * ICQ Birthday notifications are shown as buddy list emblems.
+ * Plugin actions are now available from the docklet context menu
+ in addition to the Tool menu of the buddy list.
+ * The manual page has been heavily rewritten to bring it in line
+ with current functionality.
+
+ Finch:
+ * If a plugin says it can't be unloaded, we now display an error and
+ remove the plugin from the list of saved plugins so it won't load
+ at the next startup. Previously, we were ignoring this case, which
+ could lead to crashes.
+ * It's possible to bind key-strokes to specific menuitems in the windows.
+ Read the 'Menus' section in the man-page for details.
+ * 'transpose-chars' operation for the entry boxes. The default key-binding
+ is ctrl+t.
+ * 'yank' operation for the entry boxes. The default binding is ctrl+y.
+
+version 2.2.2 (10/23/2007):
+ https://developer.pidgin.im/query?status=closed&milestone=2.2.2
+ NOTE: Due to the way this release was made, it is possible that
+ bugs marked as fixed in 2.2.1 or 2.2.2 will not be fixed
+ until the next release.
+
+ * Various bug and memory leak fixes
+ * Look for a default prefs.xml in the CSIDL_COMMON_APPDATA directory
+ (e.g. c:\Documents and Settings\All Users\
+ Application Data\purple\prefs.xml) on Windows, similarly to
+ how this is done on other platforms.
+
+version 2.2.1 (09/29/2007):
+ https://developer.pidgin.im/query?status=closed&milestone=2.2.1
+ NOTE: Due to the backporting that happened for the actual
+ release, it is possible bugs marked as fixed in 2.2.1
+ will not be fixed until 2.2.2.

+version 2.1.0 (07/28/2007):
+ libpurple:
+ * Core changes to allow UIs to use second-granularity for scheduling.
+ Pidgin and Finch, which use the glib event loop, were changed to use
+ g_timeout_add_seconds() on glib >= 2.14 when possible. This allows
+ glib to better group our longer timers to increase power efficiency.
+ (Arjan van de Ven with Intel Corporation)
+ * No longer linkifies screennames containing @ signs in join/part
+ notifications in chats
+ * With the HTML logger, images in conversations are now saved.

+ * Added support for QIP logs to the Log Reader plugin (Michael Shkutkov)
+
+ Pidgin:

+ * The formatting toolbar has been reorganized to be more concise.
+ * A new status area has been added to the top of conversations to

+ * Authorization requests don't popup new dialogs anymore. They are
+ displayed at the bottom of the buddy list instead.
+ * New mail notifications don't popup new dialogs anymore. They are
+ displayed at the top of the buddy list instead.
+
+ Conversations and Chats:
+ * Timestamps honor the locale. To use the traditional style,
+ enable the "Message Timestamp Formats" plugin. The plugin
+ also provides options to show dates in timestamps.
