Ubuntu 14.10 is coming with Unity Integration!

ITVoice News: Next month a new release is coming from Ubuntu, Ubuntu 14.10. Several releases back a change in the Ubuntu API for the Messaging Menu clipped the integration wings of the libpurple-based instant-messaging application. Now a new Unity Integration has been added to the upcoming update which will enable users to choose to see unread count badges on the Unity Launcher.

After the last change in the Ubuntu  API, a third-party plug-in was quickly put together  along with some new features. But at that time it  was not compiled into the Ubuntu package which  was available from the Ubuntu Software Center.

A bug was submitted for the same, which has been fixed in the new update. Ubuntu 14.10 will also stock the Unity-toting version of Pidgin in the Ubuntu Software Center. Now it works with both the Messaging Menu and Unity Launcher out of the box without much hassle. To see the original bug report click here. Right now if you are with a development version of Utopic, then you will get an update to Pidgin very soon.
