Gaim, everyone's favorite IM client, has been renamed to Pidgin. The name change has been planned for a long time, but was formally announced today. I found out about this on April Fool's day, you can probably imagine my disbelieve at the time.

Gaim is dead, long live Pidgin.

It has a new look as well:

Props to Hylke Bons for creating a new set of Gaim^WPidgin icons.
