Recently, the open-source multi-instant messaging (IM) program Pidgin was updated to version 2.12.0. That’s the good news. It’s a very useful program if you work with people using multiple IM services. The bad news is that its developers couldn’t add support to newer IM platforms, such as WhatsApp, Facebook Messenger, and Slack. Additionally, it will no longer support the deprecated Facebook XMPP, MSN, MySpace, Mxit, and Yahoo.
