Adium 1.4.1: ICQ fixes and much, much more!
It’s been 2 weeks since we released version 1.4. The response has been incredible. Now, hot on its heels, comes 1.4.1 with even more ducky goodness.
While the primary purpose of this update is to fix ICQ authentication, we stuck a few other goodies in there as well. (Did someone say ‘faster MSN file transfers’? ) We’ve upgraded from libpurple 2.6.6 to version 2.7.5 which brings with it the usual smörgåsbord of fixes and enhancements. For more details, you can read the release notes.
What’s up with ICQ?
For those that are unaware, ICQ is no longer owned by AOL. The breakage that users may have experienced was due to the change-over to the new authentication servers.
Users of Mac OS X 10.4 using Adium 1.3.10 can change the server setting to “login.icq.com” in the “Options” pane of their ICQ account’s settings.
SSL encryption is currently not supported server-side so we were forced to disable it in Adium 1.4.1.
