Pidgin 2.12.0


Pidgin 2.12.0

Pidgin est un logiciel de messagerie instantanée multi-protocole qui se connecte aux réseaux comme AOL Messenger, Yahoo Messenger, ICQ, Jabber/XMPP, Google Talk, Facebook Chat, MySpace IM, Bonjour, IRC et d'autres encore... Il est surtout anciennement connu sous le nom de Gaim à l'époque de sa version 2.0. Il est basé sur les bibliothèques GTK+ connus surtout dans le monde Linuxien qui permet une grande modularité dans ses plug-ins. Il est naturellement disponible pour Windows et Linux. Quant à MacOS X, la source est disponible pour compilation sinon il faudra se tourner vers son frère jumeau... Adium.

	  third-party Pidgin SkypeWeb plugin, however, should provide enough
	  functionality as a replacement if people still want to use MSN:
