Bug Description

Binary package hint: pidgin

Yesterday when logging into pidgin, I received in warning in Japanese indicating that support for Version 7 of Yahoo Messenger is to be dropped in about 2 weeks. It seems that Yahoo Japan will then cease to function in Pidgin.

I am running pidgin on Lucid, ver 2.6.6. There is another indicator in the about box which I take as the monotone rev ID fc3d5c2a3920e0875ac235415cea9fc7f5ed780c

Unfortunateyl, it does not apply straight to the code in lucid, please someone have a look.

This issue was fixed in upstream 2.7.0. And Maverick already has 2.7.3-1ubuntu3. I will mark as Fix Released.
