3rd party MSN problems: Update!

In my previous post 3rd party MSN problems, I discussed how to update pidgin to use MSN-Pecan, rather than Libpurple. After doing some research, the problem was found to be the implementation of MSNP15. Official MSN clients, as well as a few 3rd party clients, seem to fall back on older protocols. As MSN-Pecan uses MSNP12, it will work.

This morning, I accidentally signed in under MSN, rather than the WLM account on pidgin and lo-and-behold it worked! The pidgin folks have pushed out a fix to the MSNP15 problem and pidgin should function correctly now.

If you’d like to follow the bug report, it can be found here.

I like computers... A lot. So I tend to spend a lot of time doing varied things with them. Often you'll find me playing with Python or PHP, fighting with operating systems, ranting about some off-the-wall concept, or preparing for zombies.
