You should still see the new pidgin, however. Have you given a
"yum clean metadata ; yum list pidgin libpurple" a try?

Resources you want to learn about:
* The Fedora Updates System "bodhi"
* Search for "pidgin":
The current test-update of "pidgin" is on its way to "stable" already.
The libpurple you've installed belongs to the same package set (it's built
from the same pidgin src.rpm even).
Meanwhile, the packages should still be available in the updates-testing
