Instalar Pidgin 2.7.10 en Maverick

Hace unos días ha sido actualizado Pidgin a la versión 2.7.10 con esta lista de cambios:

  • General:
    • Force video sources to all have the same capabilities. This reduces the number of times video must be scaled down, saving CPU time.
    • Starting multiple video calls and ending one no longer causes the other calls to stop sending audio and video.
    • Perl bindings now respect LDFLAGS.
    • Added AddTrust External Root CA.
    • Resolve some issues validating X.509 certificates signed off the CAcert Class 3 intermediate cert when using the GnuTLS SSL/TLS plugin.
  • Gadu-Gadu:
    • Don’t drop whole messages when text is colored.
  • Groupwise:
    • Don’t show two windows when using “Get Info” on a buddy.
  • IRC:
    • Don’t send ISON messages longer than 512 bytes.
  • libpurple:
    • Stop sending audio when placing a call on hold.
    • Stop translating gpointers to ints in the dbus API. This removes functions from the dbus API.
    • Fix D-Bus introspection calls that omit the interface parameter.
    • Fixed bugs in purple_str_to_time() that caused the most recent ‘make check’ failures.
    • Correct an issue that caused some UIs other than Pidgin or Finch to leave a buddy in the “is typing” state.
    • Fix potential information disclosure issues in the Cipher code.
  • Pidgin:
    • Support using the Page Up and Page Down keys on the numeric keypad in the conversation window.
    • Fix a few memory leaks.
    • Support rendering strikethrough when received as in-line CSS.
    • Editable comboboxes are now more friendly to some GTK+ themes.
  • Plugins:
    • The Voice/Video Settings plugin no longer resets selected devices to defaults.
    • The Voice/Video Settings plugin no longer crashes when a stored device name is not found in the list of available devices.
    • The Autoaccept plugin now allows disabling filename escaping.
    • The Autoaccept plugin now allows choosing Reject/Ask/Accept for non-buddies.
  • QQ:
    • QQ2008 is now the default protocol version.
  • XMPP:
    • Don’t crash when receiving an unexpected/invalid jingle transport type.
    • Handle Connection: Close headers for BOSH, when the server does not terminate the connection itself.
    • Improved parsing for DIGEST-MD5, which should resolve issues connecting to some jabberd2 servers. This corrects an issue parsing one-character or empty elements.
  • Yahoo!/Yahoo! JAPAN:
    • Fix a crash when an account disconnects before a p2p session is completely set up.
