Pidgin more stable?

We use Pidgin at the reference desk to monitor our meebo widgets and IM accounts, so I was glad to see that the latest version fixed a number of bugs.  Pidgin tended to crash once or twice a day which wasn’t devastating, but it was still pretty annoying.  I guess nothing is perfect.  Anyway, I hope this release is more stable and there are less crashes.

Now, if Meebo could add just a little more customization ability to its widgets, our IM reference would be right where I want it.  It is a little annoying that the widget says to leave an offline message.  When users do, they do not leave a way to contact them so there is no way to get back to them and answer their question.  Someday…
