The newest version had issues that had to be addressed before compiling but were all fixed and should install and run just fine. Is a great alternative to Pidgin and works and looks almost exactly the same but with alot of the features that were taken out of the original project along with some new features.
Added Pidgin Off-the-record messenger plugin for pidgin and Carrier pets. both the library and otr itself are required for the plugin
Off-the-Record (OTR) Messaging allows you to have private conversations over instant messaging by providing:
No one else can read your instant messages.
You are assured the correspondent is who you think it is.
The messages you send do not have digital signatures that are checkable by a third party. Anyone can forge messages after a conversation to make them look like they came from you. However, during a conversation, your correspondent is assured the messages he sees are authentic and unmodified.
Perfect forward secrecy
If you lose control of your private keys, no previous conversation is compromised.
