Pidgin connect problem

"The client version you are using is too old. Please upgrade at"
"Pidgin will not attmpt to reconnect the account until you correct the error and re-enable the account"

Read news at (thanks for url to Ksmster)

I found that it has just relised

My Pidgin's version is 1:2.2.1-1ubuntu4.1 Gutsy
My Pidgin's offset 0002:e83a

Download patch file at
Auto download starts after 10 sec. File name is liboscardiff.tar.gz.

sudo apt-get install bsdiff
cd /directory/where/there/is/the/downloaded/patch
sudo tar -zxvf liboscardiff.tar.gz
sudo mv /usr/lib/purple-2/ /usr/lib/purple-2/
sudo bspatch /usr/lib/purple-2/ /usr/lib/purple-2/ ./liboscardiff

Simple as magic, and not need to install any apdates :)
