the ICQ Internet message protocol servers recently changed and now require clients to use a newer version of the ICQ protocol. When logging in to ICQ Pidgin 2.5.2 (the version previously shipped with Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5) fails with an error message as a result. Pidgin 2.5.5, included with this update, uses the newer ICQ protocol, which resolves this issue. Pidgin 2.5.5 also addresses several other minor bugs.
