I have just restarted pidgin with my computer, but it did not connect to ICQ saying: "Your client version is too old, please update at http://pidgin.im". I in fact used pidgin 2.3 till then, installed 2.4.2 right away and tried the homepage as well (which seems to be down).
With 2.4.2 I still got the same message. Any ideas?
i get the same error since my last reboot of my pc, but i'm already using version 2.4.2 for more than a month i think. Maybe they changed something in the icq protocol?
same problem here on XP SP3 and three friends of mine got the problem, too
Seems to be the latest release, or is there a new one on pidgin.im, which is actually down?
Mirrors only provide 2.4.2

0x001C You are using an older version of ICQ. Upgrade recommended
there's somebody who wants us to use icq6 ^^
hm... gaim still works though...
ICQ doesnt work on meebo.com either.
currently i'm using icq2go (http://www.icq.com/download/icq2go/) for quick ICQ access until this problem is fixed...
Got this error today with Pidgin V 2.2.1 (comes with Ubuntu).
I was trying to obtain info about versions - but main page was down.
Well, an old Miranda version (0.6.8 Unicode from 2007) works fine - I have checked this on my home laptop.
same here, too, on Win XP Pro after installing 2.4.2.
Uninstalled 2.4.2 and tried backwards till 2.3.1.
But nothing works.
Any ideas whats happen?
i think the pidgin site is down because of lots of pidgin-users trying to get there because of the error message
i found a quick'n'dirty solution to get pidgin 2.4.2 on windows x86 working again:
change the byte in liboscar.dll at offset 0x19b67 from 0x0a to 0x0b
works for me - ymmw ;)
The other fix is to copy liboscar.dll from an older (2.1.1 for me) install into the Program Files\Pidgin folder (windows fix only)
Thank you for that hint with the liboscar.dll from 2.1.1 release!
Worked like a charm for me!
