Gaim threatened by AOL, changes name to Pidgin

Vorratt (973384) writes | more than 7 years ago

The Courts

Vorratt writes "Under threat of legal action by AOL, the instant messaging client Gaim is now ... Pidgin. This is also why there haven't been any non-beta releases in a while, apparently, and they "hope to have the final Pidgin 2.0.0 release late this week or early next." It's good to see that open-source projects and big, mean ol' corporations can still come to (reasonably) civil agreements with each other."

Submission Text Formatting Tips

We support a small subset of HTML, namely these tags:

  • br
  • a
  • ol
  • ul
  • li
  • dl
  • dt
  • dd
  • em

"ecode" can be used for code snippets, for example:
