Pidgin 2.8.0 Released

After months of development, finally Pidgin has released a new major release, 2.8.0. Their last release was three months ago, which is uncommon for an active open source project to have this long delay. Anyway, it's worthed to wait, since it's a new major release and there are a lot of new improvements on voice/video support along with many code cleanups, better NetworkManager interoperability, many updates on multiple plugins, and the last but not least: removal of QQ plugin since it's no longer working and has been unmaintained for some time. More to tell on the ChangeLog
