The latest Pidgin releases have built a successful string that has been interrupted by the “taskbar flash” bug.
Taskbar Flash Fix : After upgrading to 2.7.00, IM and chat windows will no longer flash when new messages are received. The problem can be easily solved by replacing old pidgin.dll file (found in Pidgin’s instalation folder) with this one. More info on issue and fix can be found here.
