Doc Text:
the ICQ Internet message protocol servers recently changed and now require clients to use a newer version of the ICQ protocol. Logging in to ICQ with Pidgin 2.5.2 (the version previously shipped with Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4) failed with an error message as a result. With this update, Pidgin has been updated to version 2.5.5, which resolves this issue.
