      connection (forcibly put the stanzas in the jabber:client
    - The default value for the file transfer proxies is

      with that user.
    - Put an icon on the "Filter" button in the debug window.
    - Don't treat "/messages/like/this " as commands.

      typing a status message no longer keeps the status entry area
      stuck in "typing" mode forever.
    - Show tooltips for ellipsized conversation tabs. On older
      systems, tooltips will show for all tabs.
    - The File Transfers and Debug Window windows are no longer
      created as dialogs. These windows should now have minimize
      buttons in many environments in which they were previously
      missing (including Windows).
    - Smiley themes with Windows line endings no longer cause theme
      descriptions not to be displayed in the theme selector.
  + Finch:
    - Fix CVE-2010-0420, a possible remote crash when handling chat
      room buddy names.
    - Rebindable 'move-first' and 'move-last' actions for tree
      widgets. So it is possible to jump to the first or last entry
      in the buddy list (and other such lists) by pressing home or
      end key (defaults)

    update attempts from trampling each other.

    prevents seeing an outdated alias or not seeing an alias at all for
    buddies who are offline when you sign in.

    message contained only formatting and that formatting was not supported
    on MSN.

    removed from the Allow list.  Users with this problem will now no
    longer receive an ADL 241 error.  The problematic buddy should now
    appear on the buddy list and can be removed or unblocked as desired.
  * Resources using __HOSTNAME__ substitution will now grab only the short
    hostname instead of the FQDN on systems which put the FQDN in the
    hostname. (Matěj Cepl)

    received one.  This fixes a registration bug as described in ticket

      catch deprecated functions earlier rather than later.
    * Thanks to a patch from Intel, the Bonjour prpl now supports file
      transfers using XEP-0096 and XEP-0065.  This should enable file
      transfers between libpurple clients and Gajim clients, but will not

    * XMPP password changes that return errors no longer cause the saved
      password to be changed.  
    * XMPP file transfer support has been enhanced to support sending
      files through a proxy when the server supports discovering a

      a proxy when the server doesn't advertise one.
  + pidgin:
    * If a plugin says it can't be unloaded, we now display an error and

    * Mark dialog windows as transient for appropriate parent windows to
      help window managers do the right thing  (Gabriel Schulhof)
    * Connection errors are now reported in mini-dialogs inside the buddy
      list, rather than as buttons in the buddy list and with dialog
      boxes.  If several accounts are disabled when you sign on elsewhere,
      you can now re-enable them all with a single click.
    * Added tooltips to the Room List window to show full topics
    * Added buttons in preferences to access GNOME network and browser
      preferences configuration dialogs when running under GNOME
    * If you alias a buddy to an alias that is already present within
      a particular group, we now offer to merge the buddies into the
      same contact.
    * A music emblem is now displayed in the buddy list for a buddy if we
      know she is listening to some soothing music.
    * Added a 'Move to' menu in buddy list context menu for moving buddies
      to other groups as an alternative to dragging.
    * Group headings are now marked via an underline instead of a  
      different color background.
    * It is now possible to mark a chat on your buddy list as "Persistent"
      so you do not leave the chat when the window or tab is closed.
    * The auto-join option for chats is now listed in the "Add Chat"
      dialog along with the new persistence option.
    * Closing an IM no longer immediately closes your conversation.  It
      will now remain active for a short time so that if the conversation
      resumes, the history will be retained.  A preference has been added
      to toggle this behavior.
    * The "Smiley" menu has been moved to the top-level of the toolbar.
    * Pidgin's display is now saved with the command line for session
      restoration.  (David Mohr)
    * ICQ Birthday notifications are shown as buddy list emblems.

      in addition to the Tool menu of the buddy list.
    * The manual page has been heavily rewritten to bring it in line
      with current functionality.
  + Finch:
    * If a plugin says it can't be unloaded, we now display an error and
      remove the plugin from the list of saved plugins so it won't load
      at the next startup.  Previously, we were ignoring this case, which
      could lead to crashes.
    * It's possible to bind key-strokes to specific menuitems in the windows.
      Read the 'Menus' section in the man-page for details.
    * 'transpose-chars' operation for the entry boxes. The default key-binding
      is ctrl+t.
    * 'yank' operation for the entry boxes. The default binding is ctrl+y.
