Adium 1.1.3

Sunday, September 30th, 2007

Happy Sunday! Adium 1.1.3 is now available. This bugfix + feature release fixes a number of major and minor problems with previous versions. Notably, crashes in the transcript viewer and events editor are fixed, MSN now works again using the HTTP connect method (needed in many firewalled environments; this was broken by a change to the MSN servers), and Yahoo group chat rooms work again (previously broken by a change to the Yahoo servers).

A couple of the upcoming changes for Adium 1.2 are included in this release, as well: a subsection of the XMPP improvements see the light of day for Adium now rather than later, and the MySpace instant messaging service is now available.

As always, see the Version History for the full changes list.

Adium 1.1.3 is a recommended upgrade for all users of Mac OS X 10.4 or later.

A lot goes into every Adium release, from testing to coding to support. We’re a friendly and active development and user community, but we always want for more hands, eyes, and minds. That means you! Remember, Adium is free, open source software, coded entirely by volunteers. See Contributing to Adium for how you can submit patches and code, help hunt down bugs, and donate! Thanks as always for the continued support of our excellent site and code host NetworkRedux and our download host CacheFly!

Coming in Adium 1.2

Tuesday, September 11th, 2007

Adium 1.2, our next major goal, is going to be a crazy awesome release. In the last two days we’ve finished the initial merges of our Google Summer of Code 2007students’ efforts; it’ll be some time and effort before the development trunk of Adium is stable and close to a release with all these incoming changes, but it’ll be well worth it. The Summer of Code was a huge success:

 

 

 

  • Erik Beerepoot worked on multi-user conferencing in Adium, making good strides toward a more full-featured, shiny group chat experience.

 

 

  • Matt Handley greatly expanded Adium’s AppleScript support; it will now be possible to control Adium easily via AppleScript, paving the way to even more great user content and control customizability.

 

 

 

In addition, Adium 1.2 will utilize libpurple 2.2.0, which will bring a number of improvements, most notably the results of a Google Summer of Code project for Pidgin by Jeff Connelly which has added MySpaceIM support.

Join us in improving Adium! Read Contributing To Adium to learn how you can help :)
