Adium 1.5.7 released

Tuesday, July 2nd, 2013

We are happy to announce the release of Adium 1.5.7. Changes include the update of Twitter support and the removal of StatusNet support. Update via “Check For Updates” from the “Adium” menu or download 1.5.7 here. You can find the full list of changes here.

Updated Twitter support
We are glad to report that the required changes to continue our Twitter support have been finished with the release of Adium 1.5.7. Thanks to Frank Dowsett we are now using STTwitter, which supports version 1.1 of Twitter’s API. While this means the core of Adium’s Twitter support has been completely rewritten, transition should be automatic and quick. You will also notice some extra features like better support for displaying retweets and expanding links.

StatusNet support dropped
Sadly, dropping support for version 1.0 of that API also caused us to lose support for StatusNet. Our statistics indicate only a handful of people used this feature, and considering StatusNet is deprecated in favor of we decided to not put any effort in adding StatusNet support to STTwitter. If you want us to add support, we invite you to upvote our ticket #16380. And if a contributor were to step forward and add support, that would be all the more welcome.
