Nice circular argument about not needing a release since there hasn't been one ...

If PRs are not ready in time, they will just have to wait for the next release unless they are really important.
Pango isn't needed for the source to be released, Win builds will have to wait until you have one though.

A year since release clearly also means there hasn't been a need to release in a year...

That said, looking at the 2.14.0 ChangeLog [1], there's one new feature and a bunch of bug fixes.  There are also 2 pull-requests that we have been waiting on and we still need to find a version of pango that we can distribute that fixes the pango cve from a few months back.  I reached out to some of our developers that run windows full time to investigate but never heard back from them.

Wonder if or how far off loosing webkit in pidgin 3 is?
I would like to take P3 for a spin but the old webkit dep gets in my way.

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.


    Pidgin 2 really needs a release. Please consider time based releases so people
    get to enjoy the new stuff as they happen.

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.

I don't like nagging like this but it has been more that a year now since last release ...
