Everything Changes (a.k.a Pidgin-SNPP is dead; long live Purple Plugin Pack!)

Ok, I know the title of this post is a bit lame, but you'll have that. Deal. :-P

The title is supposed to be an obvious reference to the maintainer of the Pidgin-SNPP protocol plugin for the Simple Network Paging Protocol has accepted a long-standing invitation to bring his plugin to the Purple Plugin Pack.

rizzo, the maintainer of pidgin-snpp, had mentioned that he needed to set up a Windows Pidgin build environment and work on his plugin. I reextended the offer to join the Plugin Pack by saying that the plugin would already have been released, and rizzo accepted. We're working on making the plugin compatible with Pidgin 2.x.y now.

Hopefully we'll release again around the time Pidgin does, new plugin and all. :)
