It depends what you class as relevant. I know Warren has been hoping to
update RHEL to Pidgin 2.x for a while now, and I have been building RPMs
for RHEL/CentOS 4 & 5 since Pidgin 2.0.0 :

Also, how much work is it really creating us to support older Gtk in
Pidgin 2.x? I occasionally remind others that some things are dependent
on new Gtk versions, and sometimes fix the breakage myself, but most of
what I've seen as being relevant are more like Pidgin 3.x dependencies
