Gaim Changed to Pidgin

After a long legal problem with AOL regarding a name, finally Gaim developer decided to make the Instant Messaging Freedom Corporation to give legal support for Gaim project. Not only that. Gaim developers also decided to change their Gaim project into something new which doesn't have any legal problem and thus they choose several names for their projects: "Pidgin" for gaim, "libpurple" for libgaim, and "Finch" for gaim-text. With this announcements, they are on their moves changing infrastructures that was originally placed at SF into their new home, along with other facility, such as mailing list, bug tracker, and also new version control system (they plan to use monotune).

Good news is that the final version of Gaim 2.0.0 is scheduled to be released this month. Well, let's see what a final version of Gaim 2.0.0 can give. Since the last several betas version, i'm unable to make it produce any sound. It's mute now :(
