SubEthaEdit Roxors!

Saturday, February 25th, 2006

SubEthaEdit from the Coding Monkeys rules, and here is why:

1) They are generally nice folks. For instance, any problems I’ve had they’ve been happy to help with. Oh, and they just donated licenses to the Adium project. Pretty sweet huh?

2) It’s a great text editor. I’ve used it as an all purpose editor for a while now, and it’s been pretty sweet.

3) The icon is pretty cool. Albeit I do prefer the older blue squishy guys to the newer green squishy guys icon, but it’s still a pretty sweet icon.

4) Collaborative editing is really beneficial to the project. Having 4 devs working on one class file at the same time really helps the development process along. It also really helps when someone is stuck on something, and is easier than pasting it somewhere and then going back and forth with it.

So ya, I like SEE :D

Proxy server help needed

Saturday, February 25th, 2006

We need access to a SOCKS4 proxy server, a SOCKS5 proxy server, and an HTTP proxy server for some connectivity testing. Please contact me if you have a reliable setup of one or all of these we could use. Thanks :)

Thanks to TheCodingMonkeys!

Saturday, February 25th, 2006

I’d like to thank TheCodingMonkeys for their donation to the Adium team of a 20-seat SubEthaEdit license. We use SubEthaEdit (or SEE) fairly regularly for its great multi-user collaborative editing functionality which lets any number of people work on the same document — from code, aided by its language-appropriate syntax highlighting, to brainstorming sessions to changelogs — over the Internet or Bonjour. I personally use it as my TextEdit replacement, as well — I even have SVN_EDITOR=”see -w” in my .bashrc so I can write Subversion commit logs with it. We definitely recommend you check it out.

Adium X 0.89

Sunday, February 12th, 2006

Adium X 0.89 is now available. This is a small bug fix release which fixes a major messaging problem for MSN users ([#2834]) and a very common crash for Google Talk users ([#1493]). There are also several other bug fixes as well as localization updates – see the Version History for all the details. Enjoy! :)

Edit: The blog still isn’t a support forum, and all support requests will be completely ignored. Please see the Support & Development tab for support.

0.89 beta

Tuesday, February 7th, 2006

Adium 0.89 beta is now available. This will be a quick release primarily to fix two major issues: an MSN ‘conversation error’ problem new to Adium 0.88 and a very old crash when Google Talk and other SSL-using Jabber accounts are disconnected. If you are experiencing either of those issues, please try the beta :)
