2.14.3 Released!

After releasing Pidgin 2.14.2 some of our users which run Pidgin on Windows reached out to us about them having issues with the installer. This release takes care of this issue that affected Windows builds of Pidgin.

Also, this release removes the AIM protocol plugin. This is certainly an interesting change considering that the Pidgin project started as a chat client for AIM, yet it’s important to remember that AIM was shutdown in December 2017 so this removal was long overdue.

The complete changelog for this release is the following:


  • Removed the AIM protocol plugin. AIM has been shut down since December 15th of 2017. We left it around because of a third party server, but our plugin no longer works with it. (Review 598) (Gary Kramlich)


You can find 2.14.3 on SourceForge.

We hope everyone enjoys this release and the fixes it brings. Remember that if you have any questions or comments we have a variety of channels where you can reach out to us.
