Bump: Pidgin 2.7.3 should be in the test repo next sync. Fixes these issues:

  • libpurple
    • Fix the TURN server settings (broken in 2.7.0).
  • Pidgin
    • Re-focus the input area after clicking the attention toolbar button.
    • Re-arrange media window to make it more netbook-friendly.
  • Finch
    • Rebindable 'suggest-next-page' and 'suggest-prev-page' actions for textboxes (GntEntry) to scroll through list of suggestions.
    • Rebindable 'dropdown' action for comboboxes (GntComboBox?) to show the dropdown list of options.
  • IRC
    • Fix non-ASCII arguments to /mode et al. (thanks to Max Ulidtko)
  • MSN
    • Support for web-based buddy icons, used when a buddy logs in to the messenger on the Live website.
    • Fix file transfers with some clients that don't support direct connections (e.g., papyon, telepathy-butterfly, etc.) (#12150)
  • MXit
    • Fix filename for the Shocked emoticon. (#12364)
    • Implement the new naming conventions where possible. (MXitId, etc)
    • Display a message in the Groupchat window when you invite somebody.
    • Birthday field in profile cannot be edited when server says it is locked.
    • If a buddy is offline, show in their profile when last they were online.
    • Handle pushed profile update packets (ie, when changing your avatar via the Gallery bot).
    • If a buddy is offline and we see from their profile that they have updated their avatar, request the new avatar image from the server.
    • Fix a possible crash if a link is clicked while disconnected.
    • Unescape any escaped characters in a chatroom nickname.
    • Add the new MXit moods and emoticons.
    • MXit emoticons added to the small emoticon theme.
  • XMPP
    • Allow connecting to servers that only advertise GSSAPI and expect a fallback to legacy IQ authentication (broken in 2.7.0).
    • Fix a crash when receiving custom emoticons that don't adhere to the specification.
    • When initiating a file transfer, don't show resources that are certain to not support file transfers in the resource selection dialog.
    • Fix connecting to servers using BOSH and authenticating with DIGEST-MD5 when libpurple was built with Cyrus SASL support.
  • Yahoo/Yahoo JAPAN
    • Renamed "Use account proxy for SSL connections" to "Use account proxy for HTTP and HTTPS requests" and tied the option to HTTP requests too.
    • Properly detect HTTP proxy server use when the HTTP proxy is the global proxy server, an account-level non-HTTP proxy server is configured, and the "Use account proxy for HTTP and HTTPS requests" account option is turned off. This fixes connecting for some HTTP proxy servers.
    • Fall back to connecting to scsa.msg.yahoo.com (not configurable) if the HTTP-based connect server lookup fails. This does not work for Yahoo JAPAN accounts.
    • Fix file transfers that get stuck with "Waiting for transfer to begin".

More bug fixes than the last update. Way to keep up with things Stevo. I didn't even know a new version was out until I saw the update here. Thanks again. Awesome.
