      This is from the changelog:

      Version 2.2.0 (09/13/2007):
      http://developer.pidgin.im/query?sta...ilestone=2.2.0

      Libpurple:
      * New protocol plugin: MySpaceIM (Jeff Connelly, Google Summer of
      Code)
      * XMPP enhancements. See
      http://www.adiumx.com/blog/2007/07/soc-xmpp-update.php (Andreas
      Monitzer, Google Summer of Code for Adium)
      * Certificate management. Libpurple will validate certificates on
      SSL-encrypted protocols (William Ehlhardt, Google Summer of Code)
      * Some adjustments were made to fix sending messages when using
      the MSN HTTP method. (Laszlo Pandy)
      * Yahoo! Chat is fixed.
      * Some AIM file transfer issues between Pidgin and other clients
      have been fixed. (Kyryll A Mirnenko)
      * Properly restore idle status and time for AIM and ICQ accounts
      when they reconnect after being disconnected.

      Pidgin:
      * Insert Horizontal Rules and Strikethrough text from toolbar.
      * Option to show protocol icons in the buddy list, from the
      Buddies > Show menu. (Justin Heiner)
      * Ability to build with native, non-X11 GTK+ on OSX. (Anders
      Hasselqvist)
      * Remember the 'Enable Sounds' setting for a conversation.
      * Right-clicking the empty space in the formatting toolbar
      allows you to toggle back to the old "ungrouped" version.
      * Protocols supporting account registration via Pidgin now show
      a descriptive checkbox instead of a vague "Register" button.
      * Fixed a bug where a tab would be shown on single conversations
      when tabs were disabled.

      Finch:
      * Per-conversation mute and logging options (accessible from the menu).
