We can now import logs from iChat.

We’re taking advantage of a program by Spiny Software named Logorrhea. Get it here.

Using Logorrhea, go to “Export Chats …” in the file menu.

Export those chats.

This will make a tab-delimeted file with all of your conversations. Then run ichat2adium.pl (get it from Adium’s CVS in the Utilities folder, or here. on the file. Run it by typing “ichat2adium.pl /path/to/iChat\ Export.txt –usernames –primary-user YOUR_USER_NAME”

You might get a few messages about a bad record. This is normal. If you get a bajillion, you might have problems with encoding. (SirFunk did. I didn’t. Not sure why.) In that case, you can use TextEdit to remedy the problem.

Open it in TextEdit, and resave it as UTF-8 encoding, with a different filename. Then run ichat2adium.pl /path/to/new/file

I’ve fixed a few bugs with the new log viewer. The fixes should be in the next binary (Nov 29 or later).

Because one of the bugs involved searching, you’re going to need to reset your Adium log searching indexes. To reset the search index, quit Adium and:

Delete the ‘Adium’ folder from at ~/Library/Caches (From inside your home folder).

Next time you open Adium’s log viewer it will rebuild the index, and all should work :-)

So today’s binary has a change to the way languages are encoded… AIM seems to include LANG=”11″ when sending non-English languages. This is not standard HTML, and I’m not sure what it means. For the moment, we’re going to include LANG=”11″ with every message… please IM me or email me if you come across any problems sending or receiving, letting me know which you were doing, what language, and between Adium and what other client/platform.

Compile from sourcers have a ranlib in your future.

The liboscar.a file is going to be corrupted as you download it. Either delete it preemptively or delete and reupdate. Then ranlib the file again.

If you are getting a crash on launch with the newest binary, ‘Get Info’ on Adium in the finder and disable the ‘Event Bezel’ plugin.

This is already fixed in the CVS, so it should work as expected in the next binary :-)
