Ainda não está perfeito... se apanharem bugs, reportem! Não fiquem sentados há espera que o suporte oficial do pidgin venha um dia a ser alguma coisa em modos.
Direct connections for MSN! What do I mean? Just take a look at the screenshot below.
What's that? You don't see it? Just take a look at how fast it's going. Yes, that's right; it's not a pitiful 10KiB/s, but about an order of magnitude faster.
It all started with this little patch on trac. But it required a lot of work to get it going. I must have made at least 60 commits just fixing things and getting it to cooperate with aMSN and the official client. I think it should be good now, but you can always disable it in the Account options. It even makes buddy icon and custom emoticon loading faster.
Anyway, I promised I would say something about 2.7.1, and here you go. Direct connections will be in 2.7.1. In fact, I'm just about to push all the revisions.
Elliott: Hey, I'm first! How did that happen?! Maybe because of the
interesting changes in this release. Sure there were quite a few bug
fixes, but I know what you've all been waiting for is the direct
connections in MSN. Trust me, it's really really fast!!
John: Whoa, short turnaround for us. This is just 17 days after our
previous release! This fixes a number of bugs that you've all been
reporting a ton of duplicate tickets about and even gives you the new
direct connection file transfer support for MSN. Enjoy!

Fix connecting to servers using BOSH and authenticating with DIGEST-MD5 when libpurple was built with Cyrus SASL support.
Renamed "Use account proxy for SSL connections" to "Use account proxy for HTTP and HTTPS requests" and tied the option to HTTP requests too.
Properly detect HTTP proxy server use when the HTTP proxy is the global proxy server, an account-level non-HTTP proxy server is configured, and the "Use account proxy for HTTP and HTTPS requests" account option is turned off. This fixes connecting for some HTTP proxy servers.
Fall back to connecting to scsa.msg.yahoo.com (not configurable) if the HTTP-based connect server lookup fails. This does not work for Yahoo JAPAN accounts.
Fix file transfers that get stuck with "Waiting for transfer to begin".
Tenho imensa dificuldade a usar o Pidgin no protocolo no MSN. Liga raramente e desliga-se com muita frequencia e depois não volta a ligar. Tenho router com dd-wrt e o meu ISP é a ZON. Terei que abrir algumas portas no router para o MSN? Uso por vezes o aMSN e não tenho nada configurado no router...
Uso o plugin do facebook e ligo-me sem dificuldades ao facebook!
