    It’s great that you fixed the typing bug in Google Talk and that now I can see my friends avatars on it :)
    I like the way it hides the window if close to a corner. I think it should have round corners to the opposite side of the contact list. :)

    Anyways. . .beta 1 is a succes :)

    I went back to the latest stable because I was getting message timeouts and file transfer failures over the MSN/WLM Protocol. :(

    This is running great for me…. but….

    Almost all of my buddies icons have vanished.

    Where is Adium supposed to cache these? I’ll add ‘em back manually if I have to.

    Hey, I think I found a little bug, I can’t open de Preferences –> Appearance window, when my system language is Dutch. But when I change the language to English it works fine.. See for a screenshot here –> http://img141.imageshack.us/img141/4265/afbeelding19rz.png

    btw, the rest of the preferences work fine..

    Great fracking work — I spent all day yesterday transferring inline images over AIM, just because I could… then I gave the mailman the finger, and peed down the elevator shaft.

    Good work, gang! ;-)

    This is a great product! Be cool if Skype was on the supported list …. or have I missed something?

    Amazing improvements… I am loving this so far — only suggestion is to bring back the %_comment tag! Because of this tag, I ended up putting little snippets of my favorite lyrics into the comments and putting %_comment in my profile. I will be switching back to 0.89.1 (I think that’s what it was) sadly for a while… I’d try to make my own Applescript if I could, but I hope it’s not a problem to put this back in.

    Yeah it seems nice and everything, but the “Mute While Away” feature should be brought back. Unless I just can’t find it…
