Some of you have been asking for updates as well as our stable releases on Warrens PPA repository. Unfortunately Warren doesn’t have that much time currently and additionally his VM somehow doesn’t boot up (Lucid is horrible in VirtualBox anyway), so he can’t manage it at the moment.
Thus we have created a new PPA which is based on a newly created Gfire team at Launchpad, which will ship important commit updates as well as every stable version of Gfire.
Instructions on how to use it can be found on the PPA website: https://launchpad.net/~gfire/+archive/gfire.
The stable package carries the name pidgin-gfire and the unstable package is named pidgin-gfire-svn. Currently both contain the same source code of Gfire 0.9.2 but choosing the unstable one will give you intermediate updates later on.
