Today was a busy day in Land O' Pidgin.  We released some new versions
of Pidgin/Finch/libpurple:

2.5.9: This is 2.5.8 with some important security fixes.

2.6.0: This is months of awesome work from lots of people.
Developers, crazy patch writers, summer of code students, the pope, a
Romulan, and an anonymous fictional character from a Charles Dickens

2.6.1: This is 2.6.0 with an important security fix and some fixed
compilation problems.  Please use this and never 2.6.0!

See for details.  Also, as
of 2.6.0 we now require glib and gtk+ 2.4.0 or newer.  tarballs for
all releases are online and it's likely that an amazing human being
will build a Windows package for 2.6.1 within the next 48 hours.
