  * the installers and `pidgin.exe` are signed using the [http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms537361(v=vs.85).aspx Microsoft Authenticode] signing mechanism by Daniel Atallah using a certificate with a thumbprint of one of the following:
   * Pidgin 2.10.7 - 2.10.9: `C5476901C3C63FABF54CEBA9E3F887932A9579B5`
   * Pidgin 2.10.10+: `45b37f151a113d5070036421370813b9fba5cb13`
+    * Note that these signatures use the SHA-256 algorithm, which Windows XP doesn't support (you can still use GPG to validate the package)
  * all distributed packages (installers, debug symbols, binary zip file, gtk bundle zip file) are signed with [http://www.gnupg.org/ GPG] by Daniel Atallah (`DE890574`).
 The authenticode signature can be verified most easily by using Windows Explorer to look at the Properties of the installer executable.
