Pidgin crashes : issue

Hi,
Does anybody else have the same issue as I have since yesterday : Pidgin crashes after sending a mesage?
thx for your feedback

This is the debug window

(16:26:31) util: Writing file prefs.xml to directory /home/user/.purple
(16:26:31) util: Writing file /home/user/.purple/prefs.xml

Version is Pidgin 2.14.1 (libpurple 2.14.1) witch is not the lastest.

It seems the bug has been corrected in the latest version. Hop can I upgrade my Pidgin please ?

user@host:~$ sudo apt install pidgin

pidgin is already the newest version (2.14.1-1).
0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 0 not upgraded.

Seems Pidgin 2.14.1 (libpurple 2.14.1) witch is not the lastest version is the lateset version available on Whonix.

Can’t upgrade it.

So bug will remain.

EDIT : new version is available on flatpaks. How can I change or add a new source for packages ? Is it risky or could it break my system?

Support would be very welcome.

I haven’t seen any reports about this specifically but see disclaimers. Prepare accordingly, backups, recovery…
