Two issues:

1. I had to manually run ldconfig after the upgrade as it was not finding one of it's lib files.  Apparently the post-install script didn't do this.

2.  The new version is apparently missing AIM, GoogleTalk, and ICQ protocols entirely.  It will not recognize existing accounts with those, nor are they offered on the list when creating a new account.

The latter is a real show stopper.

That's quite strange... It worked fine for me, although I uninstalled and reinstalled pidgin, maybe you could try that.

Probably related to the above since ldconfig takes care of the shared libraries. I'm just going to rebuild to be safe.

I removed the package, then re-installed the 2 version, and it works fine now!

Thanks for the fast fix!
