How to Update Pidgin to the latest version

I tried from lots of sources but nothing worked, but it was easy. Go to System-->Administeration-->Synaptic Package Manager, search for pidgin, mark for 2.6.4 or whatever is the latest version that can be found from Pidgin home and apply, this did work for me. Hope it works for you too. Upgrading Pidgin solves many problem associated with yahoo earlier.
