SIPE has achieved 50,000 downloads both according Sourceforge's Files section statistics and Develop->Statistics(All Time)/Downloads(Sum).
For that Pidgin's plugin page was updated to reflect it.
In fact we are most downloadable Pidgin-related project on the Sourceforge apart from Pidgin. And we have even better customer satisfaction rating 98% than Pidgin itself :)
Congratulations to all of us!
