Running 90k, Pidgin 2.4.2-1.fc10

When I try to connect to icq the account gets disabled and the following message comes up: The client version you are using is too old. Please upgrade at http://pidgin.im/

Has icq worked again on excluding non-official clients or is pidgin trying to force updates?

I wondered if maybe, since my pdigin is a fc10 package, it's still a relict from blaghead and should have been but wasn't already updated.
On 'apt-get reinstall pidgin' I get the following:

Quote:

apt-get reinstall pidgin
Reading Package Lists... Done
Building Dependency Tree... Done
Reinstallation of pidgin is not possible, it cannot be downloaded.

Maybe you saw it already, but ICQ Starts Blocking Alternative Clients: http://slashdot.org/article.pl?sid=08/07/02/1331224&from=rss.

luckily we have a libpurple update which resolved the issue.
