Details

Updated pidgin packages that fix a bug are now available.

Pidgin allows you to talk to anyone using a variety of messaging protocols
including AIM, MSN, Yahoo!, Jabber, Bonjour, Gadu-Gadu, ICQ, IRC, Novell
Groupwise, QQ, Lotus Sametime, SILC, Simple and Zephyr.

These updated pidgin packages fix the following bug:

* Pidgin users who attempted to log on to an AOL Instant Messenger (AIM)
account found that their connections failed due to recent AIM protocol
changes. A workaround for this incompatibility involved disabling secure
authentication. This update resolves the incompatibility so that Pidgin
users are once again able to log on to their AOL Instant Messenger accounts
using secure authentication. (BZ#576311)

All users of pidgin are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which
resolve this issue.
