Description Jens-Uwe Peter 2008-11-22 10:09:34 UTC
Please stabilize pidgin 2.5.2. It has been in the tree for a while, there are no bugs here for it and it has several improvements(e.g. fixing some login issues).

Reproducible: Always
Comment 1 DEMAINE Benoît-Pierre, aka DoubleHP 2008-12-03 01:51:40 UTC
Please hurry up: 2.5.1 meets a bug in Yahoo (since last Saturday) that is fixed by 2.5.2 ... we need a quick stab.

> Unable to get a valid AIM login hash.
> You may be disconnected shortly.  You may want to use TOC until this is fixed.
> Check for updates.

Comment 2 Jens-Uwe Peter 2008-12-17 17:54:55 UTC
It has been 14 days since the last comment. We (Yahoo/AIM users) need this version. It would be nice if the stabilization would go on, so there is no need for unmasking (and then propably get an unstable 2.5.3 in the future).
Comment 3 DEMAINE Benoît-Pierre, aka DoubleHP 2008-12-18 06:12:41 UTC
It's been 20 days since 31 days have gone; as no bug have been marking blocking this one, I assume no Gentoo user could find any bug in 2.5.2 ... so that it should have been marked stable 20 days ago. IMHO.

pidgin-2.5.2 has been working fine for me for a while
