Explaining about old pidgin

Why it is explaining about old version of pidgin with checkbox in Facebook XMPP section? Arch is rolling distro, so I think we do not need to explain about old versions.

Avahi needs to be installed, started and enabled for Bonjour protocol to work on Pidgin

By default, after installing avahi package the service (avahi-daemon.service) doesn't start nor is enable.

In this situation, the Bonjour protocol will not work for Pidgin, and an error message will appear indicating the lack of a mDNS server (or something like that).

After:

pacman -S avahi

systemctl enable --now avahi-daemon.service

, Bonjour will work fine in Pidgin.

Should this be added to this wiki?

Regards
