Pidgin is a chat program which lets you log in to accounts on multiple chat 
networks simultaneously. This means that you can be chatting with friends 
on MSN, talking to a friend on Google Talk, and sitting in a Yahoo chat 
room all at the same time.  Pidgin is cross-platform, supports numerous 
chat protocols, and can be extended through plugins.

This is an update to the latest upstream stable release, which removed 
broken and unmaintained support for the Facebook, MSN, and Yahoo! chat 
protocols.  In their place, three third-party modules have been added or 
updated to attempt to replace that functionality, although they may not
be production-ready quality quite yet.
