Gaim changes its name to Pidgin

It appears that AOL's legal team had set its gaze upon Gaim again and the developers were forced to change the name of the instant messenger under a settlement agreement.

After a secret debate, they decided on the name "Pidgin" for Gaim itself, "libpurple" for libgaim, and "Finch" for gaim-text.

The change was unfortunately necessary in order for the developers to release the stable version of Gaim 2 which is expected to be out within the next two weeks.

The developers have also decided that it was finally time to leave Sourceforge and relocate to their own server.
