Yu Pidgin tune status plugin / News: Recent posts

v0.4.0 released

After Pidgin 2.6.0, it becomes impossible to take advantage of Gtk2 perl module. In this version, I tried defer "require Gtk2" till plugin_load() and it works! So, all Gtk2 related features you can see in version 0.3.0 are all coming back. Furthermore, slash command has been enhanced. Now users are able to search artist/album on through slash command "/yulastfm"
If you find any bug, please report it. Thank you.
Hope you like it.
