Look, Pidgin 2.5.0 is out!
And yes, we have MSNP15 support. That means offline message support, sending custom smileys, server-side aliasing, buddy embleming and a whole bunch of other goodies. Hylke made some nice updates to the icon theme that looks cleaner, I think. Though I'm not sure whether I like the new pigeon yet. I hope with all that testing those Adium guys did, there won't be too many problems. Some people aren't as optimistic, but we'll see how it goes. :P
Oh, and guess what? I'm a developer, too!
