Summary     : Pidgin protocol plugin to connect to MS Office Communicator
Description :
A third-party plugin for the Pidgin multi-protocol instant messenger.
It implements the extended version of SIP/SIMPLE used by various products:

    * Microsoft Lync Server 2010
    * Microsoft Office Communications Server (OCS 2007/2007 R2 and newer)
    * Microsoft Live Communications Server (LCS 2003/2005)
    * Reuters Messaging

With this plugin you should be able to replace your Microsoft Office
Communicator client with Pidgin.

This package provides the icon set for Pidgin.

Update Information:

New upstream release:

- support for Lync & Office365
- added [MS-SIPAE] TLS-DSK authentication scheme
- added [MS-DLX] based Get Info/Contact Search
- added experimental media TCP transport

**NOTE:** Lync server doesn't work together with the security fix for CVE-2011-3389 in NSS 3.13.x: the connection is dropped with the message "Read Error".

Workaround: Set the environment variable NSS_SSL_CBC_RANDOM_IV=0 when running Pidgin.

This update can be installed with the "yum" update program.  Use 
su -c 'yum update pidgin-sipe' at the command line.
