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.

I created these branches in r19787 from trunk@19786.

Huzzah! 2007 Edition

Wednesday, April 18th, 2007

As discussed previously, Adium is participating in this year’s Google Summer of Code.

Google gave us six slots, just like last year. We’ve made our choices; here they are:

Adding Voice Support to Adium by Implementing a Basic A/V Backend and IAX
Student: Justin Berka
Mentor: Alan Humpherys
More information on IAX.
Improving group chat
Student: Erik Beerepoot
Mentor: David Smith
Unit testing
Student: Patrick Gibson
Mentor: Brian Ganninger
Fix & expand AppleScript support
Student: Matt Handley
Mentor: Peter Hosey
Improving Adium’s XMPP (Jabber) Support
Student: Andreas Monitzer
Mentor: Augie Fackler
Features Andreas wants to implement: Gateway support, PEP, user tune, user avatar, user nickname, OTR-over-Jabber improvements, better hyperlinking over Jabber, discovery browsing, ad-hoc commands, and possibly invisibility.
Improved Bonjour Support
Student: Erich Kreutzer
Mentor: Andrew Wellington

On Jabber: Yes, we had a similar project last year, but that was using Smack (a separate Jabber library), which we had to drop because of the Java-Cocoa bridge going away. Andreas is back to do it again in libpurple.

Also, we’re not going to have a separate student blog this year. Students’ blog posts will be here, on the main blog.
