.58 will not be coming out today.

There are currently some major changes being reworked, and some of us have gotten ahold of a World of Warcraft beta, which is sucking all of our free-time like brain-sucking zombies on a holiday.

We look forward to releasing .58 at some later date. Right after I go kill those orcs.

Hello there,

Just a note to thank all the wonderful people who has submitted stuff to the Xtras site, in less than 15 days there are more than 150 Xtras in the site. That’s an average of more than 10 Xtras submitted per day.

It’s really amazing, a big thank you to the Adium community and of course the one who made the new Xtras site possible, Benjamin ;-)

Our known issues list is now publicly viewable (Link available in the sidebar –>).

If you’re experiencing an issue on that list, there is no need to report it unless you have additional information that may help us fix it. As we fix bugs they will be removed from the list, but the fixes will not be available until the next Adium release.

The following 0.56 issues have already been fixed and are waiting for this Friday’s 0.57 release:

- HTML appearing at the beginning of outgoing MSN messages

- MSN display names not appearing, AIM names lacking formatting

- Multiple tabs being created for a single contact

- Contact ordering not saving on quit

- Custom sound alerts not working

The past 2 weeks of exams and school projects really took a beating on us, but almost all of that has cleared up now. Thanks for your patience. We’ve got some exciting stuff planned for the next few months :-) .

Adium 0.56 is now available! :-)

This release adds ‘Insert Emoticon’ menus and fixes a number of crashers and bugs.

In Adium 0.54 we changed the way Adium communicated with its protocol plugins. The change was designed to prevent Adium from becoming unresponsive or beach-balling when the protocol plugin was busy (such as while connecting or disconnecting) and when the internet connection was congested or slow.

Unfortunately these changes caused some users to experience a lot of instability. Adium 0.56 will temporarily go back to the old method of communicating with the protocol plugins. This means that it may feel as if responsiveness has decreased (Especially during heavy traffic or on slow network connections). We hope to resolve the crashes in our new code soon and re-include it for a future release. :-)
