Trac, the Support & Development tab, is temporarily down for server upgrades. It’ll be back ASAP
Trac is back up and better than ever.
lies beta. Adium X 0.87 beta, specifically.
I’ve been working hard getting Adium up and running with the current CVS of Gaim 2.0.0. You can read more about Gaim 2 on the Gaim page. Of note are the many changes so far (not all of Gaim’s changes are relevant to Adium, but the change log gives you an idea how big a release it will be) including the non-gtk specific changes from the Google Summer of Code Gaim projects.
Another upcoming bit of fun-and-games from Gaim 2.0.0 is, hopefully, voice/video support. It’s likely that Voice support for Google Talk will come first, followed later by webcam support. Nothing is definite yet, so please don’t treat this as a promise, but we’re certainly excited at the prospect.
Calls to arms
1. Several of the new Gaim 2 changes need special attention for Adium to see any benefit, such as the new support for Yahoo Doodle. Interested in seeing Doodle support in Adium? Have enough coding experience to make it happen? Consider this an official invitation to try your hand.
The same goes for the new MSN Custom emoticon support and anything you see in the Trac list of tickets or want to see there. Help us help you — join the glorious elite and become an Adium patch writer
2. Through all these changes, we’re working on getting Libgaim and Adium ready to run on the new Intel-based Macs by making the binaries universal. Nobody on the development team has one of the Mactel transition kits, however. I need a Mactel, gcc 4.0.1 build of The GNU MP Bignum Library — specifically, the libgmp.a static library file. If you have access to a Mactel machine, please download, configure, make, make check, and send me the library, which is found in the .libs directory after building. Thanks!
To all of those looking to help work on Adium, here is a perfect example of how helping another project can help Adium as well.
Webkit bounties can really help Adium a lot. So if you are so inclined as to work on Webkit, but would also like to get paid a little, and help Adium out in the process, check this out:
These folks made Watson, and some other pretty neat apps. Now they are making something that requires webkit, and have found some problems with Webkit they need fixed.
Unsanity released a new product today, Chat Transcript Manager. It allows you to organize, search, and import logs from both iChat and Adium. Great job, guys! It’s always nice to see people supporting open file formats like Adium’s.
I hope Unsanity will support our new, XML-based logging system that is currently in development. I will be posting the preliminary DTD for it in the next couple of days, so look for that.
