The default branch, which is pidgin3 is gtk3 only.  So technically it works
right now, but there's a *lot* of deprecated stuff that we're slowing
cleaning up.  That said we're also transitioning away from webkit1gtk to
our own custom widgets similar to what's in pidgin2, but that's eaten a
huge chunk of time.

Is there anything specific you're looking for?
