A quick note. Creating new groups for a MSN account in the current contact list editor is not working properly, nor moving a MSN contact to a previously created AIM group. Great things are coming that will fix all these issues (they may appear with other protocols as well), just have patience!
Having done MSN, Yahoo, and Jabber, those two (which had already compiled in an UNIX-y way when I was working with gaim previously) were just staring me down, with beautiful green eyes… and I just couldn’t say no.
The MSN HTML problem is fixed now – good catch, eevyl. We’re just stripping font information for the present; Colin’s going to make it right for real.[/edit] Yahoo display issues are better, too. Jabber doesn’t work because it apparently violates as a matter of course something which was indicative of a problem in AIM… probably won’t be too hard to fix.
MSN and Yahoo both require confirmation when someone adds you to their contact list… you’ll see a “adiumGaimRequestAction” in your console log, but Adium doesn’t know how to handle it yet. Sign in with an official client and you can respond to the request.
I’m going to be mostly gone for a couple days… New Year’s celebrations, post-New Year’s celebrations, and recovery. Watch out for that nasty Y2K4 bug which is going to shake the OS X community…
Gadu-Gadu? Napster? Do we really need, these, Evan?
On a much brighter note, Evan didn’t import the IRC plugin from gaim for a reason…

That’s supposed to be an Evil looking ASCII-art. Really. It is. I swear.
If adium crashes and you get the crash reporter, it might be helpful to include a list of what type of accounts you are connecting with. An example:
2 yahoo libgaim
1 msn libgaim
2 aim libgaim
1 icq toc2
This will help in troubleshooting protocol specific problems.
Jabber doesn’t work right now. I’d recommend waiting on it. This is all.
Waiting is the greatest virtue! (well, more exactly patience, whatever)
So it’s great all those protocols are now working, but we need to have some patience until they are fully implemented.
One note, if you use a MSN account with today’s binary, take note that your MSN friends will receive a HTML styled message… they might complain!
While rocking out and jazzing out for 4 hours in the car, I coded. And in coding, I brought you:
Enjoy. Be patient with protocol-specific features… waiting is.
