Yeah.. Sorry it's taken way longer than anticipated.  We're implementing a
widget similar to that which was in Pidgin 2 but cleaned up and so on.
That is named talkatu and can be found at  We still need to finish the chat
history widget, but we have like 7 more webkit webviews to remove from
Pidgin 3 before that becomes a necessity.

I know, but there's not a ton there at the moment and the release process
is rather tedious at the moment.  That said, I've been waiting to hear back
if we can integrate Pango from msys2 for the Windows build as the version
we're currently using has issues and no one has reported back on that yet.
