SoC: iCal integration with Adium

Thursday, August 9th, 2007

There was a ticket #7483 that was asking for iCal integration with Adium. The AppleScript support for Adium has advanced to the point of being able to do this. The script is available here. Simply attach it to iCal events, and Adium’s status will change when the event is fired. Very handy.

Mentor Peter Hosey adds: This will only work when Matt’s Summer of Code work arrives in a release Adium. That will be 1.2, at the earliest.

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.
