Adium 1.3.9

Tuesday, January 12th, 2010

Adium 1.3.9 is now available. This release contains a security fix for MSN and fixes setting the user icon for AIM and ICQ accounts on Snow Leopard.

An Adium 1.4 beta with the security fix is forthcoming. You are strongly recommended to update to 1.3.9 as soon as possible.

Yahoo! change

Saturday, June 20th, 2009

Yahoo! has made a change on their server that prevents Adium 1.3.4 and the 1.4 betas from connecting. We have released a new beta, beta 7, which contains the fix.

As we’ve noted before, 1.4 will require Leopard. Those of you who are still hanging on to Tiger are currently stuck, as we do not yet have a fixed version for you. We’ll release a 1.3.5 shortly after Libpurple 2.5.7 comes out, as that version will also contain the fix. (Libpurple, for those of you who don’t know, is the library Adium uses to connect to Yahoo! and most other services.) The Adium 1.4 betas use pre-release versions of Libpurple 2.6.

1.3.4 beta

Saturday, April 25th, 2009

Hi folks! We’ve released a 1.3.4 beta, available at the beta page.

This is a small bugfix release, which includes a newer version of libpurple’s 2.5.5 release, as well as a newer version of pidgin-facebookchat, the plugin which powers our Facebook chat. Pidgin-facebookchat 1.50 includes the fix for the bandwidth drain found in previous versions of the plugin.

Test it out, let us know how it goes! And yes, 1.4 is getting closer and closer; patience. :)

Adium 1.3.3 beta 1

Thursday, December 25th, 2008

Just in time that we can pretend we meant to do it as a holiday gift, Adium 1.3.3b1 is out! The biggest improvements are from updating to libpurple 2.5.3, but there’s an assortment of other changes as well.

Adium 1.3.2

Friday, October 10th, 2008

Adium 1.3.2 is out. As a big fan of being terse, you can take a look at the version history for the full set of changes.

Adium 1.3: What is the air speed velocity of a flying duck?

Monday, August 25th, 2008

I’m happy to announce Adium 1.3, a major release seven months in the making. This release improves almost every aspect of Adium, ranging from performance and memory to Facebook chat support, and from user interface polish to much improved MSN support with personal messages (finally!). A brand new, gorgeous Contact Inspector brings together all a contact’s information in one place – coalescing combined contacts’ information and accessing your Apple Address Book to give you at-a-glance information, and intuitive live searching in the Standard Contact List makes it a snap to find your friends. Check out the full list of changes: 261 fixed tickets in all.

The Adium development community also saw some changes with this release, welcoming new contributors and developers as well as returning team members. If you’d like to get involved, check out our Contributing to Adium page or drop by our Adium IRC Chat to see how you can help out. We’re a fun community, and working on Adium is a great learning experience with many challenges for beginners and experienced developers alike.

We greatly appreciate the wide array of web services and support donated by NetworkRedux, and the servers and bandwidth provided by our download host CacheFly, which handle the inevitable Slashdot and Digg load spikes without the slightest trouble.
