    got to be the PITA that asks . . .

    How soon before a Pidgin release or has someone figured out how to use the current with the new pidgin release?

      I just checked in a whole pile of changes, to make the transition from Gaim -> Pidgin/Purple.  Anyone feeling brave should back up their .gaim directory, and try it out.

    • Hi,

      we spent last night to port the whole gaim-encryption sources to pidgin-encryption.
      The plugin is tested and seems working in all areas as the previous plugin.

      Get the source package at: http://rzserv2.fhnon.de/~lg016586/pidgin-encryption-3.0beta8.tar.bz2
      For openSUSE 10.2 there is a repository at: http://rpm.sukimashita.com/10.2/

    • ups, uploaded the wrong source package. get is the correct one here: http://rzserv2.fhnon.de/~lg016586/pidgin-encryption-3.0beta9.tar.bz2

      Great.   Gonna give that a try with my linux box.

      How about a windows build, for the poor ms'rs?

      I built the pidgin-encryption 3.0b9 on my system, install and tested it with Pidgin 2.0b7; it works fine
      and I found no problems.

      Thanks!

      Bill

      system:  Mandriva Linux 2006.0 (Kernel 2.6.12)

      Pidgin-Encryption 3.0b9 with Pidgin 2.0b7 builds and run perfect on Kubuntu Feisty AMD64!

      Has anybody build a Windows version yet or found a way to use the old plugin with pidgin?

      Thanks
      Vaughn

       
    • Vaughn,

      pidgin-encryption should build with the "Makefile.mingw" with minor tweaks on Windows. If you know how to build pidgin on Windows, the plugin should build fine. I can't do this, because lack of Windows. There is no way to use the old plugin with pidgin, because of API changes. It seems that Bill is working on finishing the port on weekend. So if you still can wait some more days...

      Thanks for the info.

      I think I can wait some more days :)

      I saw that the final Pidgin was released? But www.pidgin.im seems to be down?

      Ferenc, you Win32 Build of Beta9 works great with Pidgin 2.0 final that came out this morning. Their site is down... but you can get the 2.0 final source and win32 binary from the SF project page.
