Let me rephrase, crash reporter is awesome! 😀

I believe I’ve fixed the two most popular crashes I’m seeing. The first involves connecting multiple accounts at once (either by the connect all menu item, or at launch with multiple auto-connecting accounts). The second involves opening and closing the account preferences, and then experiencing a crash on a contact or account status change.

Both of these should be fixed in tomorrow’s binary. If not, keep the logs coming.

Crash reporter is great, keep the logs coming 🙂

If you’re getting crashes, make sure you’re in the newest release.

After a busy day of coding, the crash reporter should be up and running in the next binary… of course, in a perfect world you’d never see the results of all our hard work, but this world, sadly, is far from perfect… 🙂

[edit] It’s 4:45 local… and libgaim 0.73 is now in Adium (up from 0.71). There don’t seem to be any huge changes (except for that minor little thing about now being ready for the msn protocol plugin to be included)… but maybe all the crashes will magically disappear. That’d be neat. [/edit]

Thanks to MordEth for pointing out that I had failed to put icq on the protocols pie chart of doom. It is now there. For anyone actually curious, the survey didn’t mean too much, I was just getting a feel for what adiums user base uses. Please don’t take these too seriously. As an example, Gadu-Gadu could be implemented before MSN 😉

Hold on tight,

We’re about to hit a downhill on our rollercoaster of stability. It’s been smooth sailing up until now, but the increased rate and severity of changes, combined with the introduction of new protocol code (Yes, libgaim account preferences will be available in tomorrow’s binary) will most likely have a negative impact on our stability and reliability over the upcoming weeks.

We’re working hard on some built in crash reporter code, and hopefully it will make an appearance before the end of the week. The crash reporter, combined with your patience and persistance, will get us through this unscathed 🙂

To keep things calm, please take extra time searching the forums before starting a new thread, and try your hardest to post replies in any relevant threads that already exist. If there are issues it’s very likely that someone else has already experienced them, and finding their posts will be of help to you.

Also keep an eye on this news page. I’ll try my hardest to keep up to date info here.

Well, the protocols thread survey, along with my constant harrassment of users in #adium on irc.freenode.net, and also people I know who use macs, and use instant messengers, has paid off. With a total of 121 votes, here is a nice pie chart of the results:

I’ve changed the way accounts are stored in the upcoming binary.

Your existing accounts should be automatically update. However, once you move to this binary, previous binaries will no longer be able to see your accounts.

The binary is shrinking, aaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhhh!

*runs in horror*

New Xcode is really there now! 🙂 Yay for it fixing the precompiled headers madness.

New Xcode is up in Software Update! 🙂

[If it’s not there yet it should be in the next few days]

If you’re getting pre-compiled symbol warnings when trying to debug Adium after updating, you might need to refresh your symfiles by running (in terminal):

sudo /usr/libexec/gdb/cache-symfiles
