    Just saw that both Pidgin and the OTR plugin for it were updated about a week ago:

    http://pidgin.im/

    https://otr.cypherpunks.ca/

    Both were long overdue IMO, addressing flaws in OpenSSL, among other things. I made it a point to stop using it until it was addressed, and well now it is.

    Thanks for the notice.
    Btw, the Pidgin site is available through HTTPS:

    Pidgin seems to support good amount of protocols, but what would be the safer option among them?
