unofficial PidginPortable 2.2.1

I got tired of waiting, and combined Pidgin 2.2.1 with the current version of PidginPortable to make my own PidginPortable 2.2.1. Here is a link to my blog post about it.

Please let me know if you have any problems using it. Hopefully this will work for people until John has enough time to put together an official release.

Careful

As stated previously, the installer and launcher are both changing dramatically in the next release. If you install an unofficial package of Pidgin Portable over your current one and later try to upgrade to the next official release, it may very well result in a non-working install of Pidgin Portable. If this occurs, you'll be completely on your own.

Sometimes, the impossible can become possible, if you're awesome!

Personally,

The last like 2/3 releases of Pidgin are buggy for me, and they're taking stuff away from the interface that I loved. When I close Pidgin, it think it's crashing, and it's done it for at least two version now, I see not point in upgrading.

I don't think there's been any dramatic changes, MySpaceIM?

the have also been Major

the have also been Major changes to the XMPP architecture, making Jabber fully functional for the first time. As someone who uses XMPP exclusively, i'm eagerly awaiting packaging of the new release so that Pidgin actually becomes properly useful.
