I’m sharing here ready-to-use development builds of Pidgin, with experimental support for various features. Please keep in mind, that you are using them at your own responsibility – this site is not official source of this software, its made just for getting it easier from official repository.

|libgadu 1.12.0-dev (source)||hg: gg11-libgadu||2013-02-04 (dd791cc07ed0)|
|Pidgin3 + GG11 (source)||hg: gg11||2013-02-06 (c27e31267e8d)|
According to GG11 branch: at this moment there is only linux version available. Moreover, its necessary to install external libgadu (from package provided above).
Missing libpurple.so when launching Pidgin: after updating from 2.x to 3.0.0 there may be necessity to run
ldconfig tool with root privileges.
Lack of GTK3 themes: if you are encountering problems with this version of that library, you can always compile against older, using switch
./configure --with-gtk=2 --with-gstreamer=0.10.
