>> Pidgin 2.4.2 client implements Yahoo Protocol Version 15 (Yahoo 188.8.131.522
>> client). However the login protocol used by Pidigin is different than that
>> used by Yahoo 8.1 clients. Pidgin 2.4.2 seem to be using older login
>> Please correct me if it is not the case.
>> Further i would like to know that is there some work currently being done

>> Also the newer Yahoo 9 version (which is still in beta) has different
>> login sequence in comparison to even the Yahoo 8 (version 15).
