Adium 1.3.8

Wednesday, November 4th, 2009

Adium 1.3.8 is now available. This release contains the connection fixes for Facebook chat, as well as a small fix for Snow Leopard users to fix the events list. There’s more Snow Leopard fixes on the upcoming 1.4 beta release which we felt were too broad of changes to include in the 1.3.8 release, sorry. An updated beta for 1.4 with the Facebook fix will be coming shortly through the usual channels. Enjoy!

NB: If you’re getting the CAPTCHA popup, disconnect and wait 10 minutes before you try to connect again. CAPTCHA itself isn’t working, but the message just means to calm down trying to connect.

Facebook chat change

Tuesday, November 3rd, 2009

Due to what appears to be a protocol change, Facebook chat is currently not working. The author of our Facebook plugin is working on a fix. We’ll keep you posted on any new releases that fix it.

In the meantime, feel free to send Facebook some feedback about wanting an official (as in, we don’t mimic the web browser) Facebook chat protocol. If they implement something that isn’t subject to breaking, we’d be able to avoid problems such as this.
