Adium 0.52 is now available! 🙂

0.52 greatly improves jabber support, adds recent history to the message windows, and fixes a handful of crashes and bugs. See the change log for a complete list of what’s new.

Note: We’ve changed how passwords are stored. You will need to re-enter your passwords after upgrading.

Well, after many, many emails from complete strangers, I’ve made my decision. Next fall I will be attending the University of Maryland. It just seemed like a better fit for me. Thank you so much to everyone who wrote in! I think I replied to everyone, and I know I at least read everything sent to me. Your advice was invaluable. It’s great when you can abuse your status as an extremely minor celebrity 😛

Thanks to everyone! By the way, 0.52 is lookin’ sharp 🙂 Some great new features headed your way!

Hello there!

I hope you are all enjoying the new site as much as I enjoyed coding it (a pleasure to work with such a beautiful design by Benjamin).

I finally coded some quick’n dirty code for the user action shots all of you are submitting to the forum thread. I fetched the pictures from the first five pages. Head to the about tab to see a sample of them (they are loaded randomly in packs of four).

I also did some cleaning work on the code overall, and now it is valid XHTML 1.0 transitional.

If you happen to have adium crash on you, and the crash reporter comes up, please be as verbose as possible as to what was happening at the time of the crash. This can help us out a ton.

Welcome to the dawn of a new age of Adium 🙂 As Adam said, we’re about halfway there… so much to do, and lots coming (well, lots coming from Adam and the rest of the team soon and from me after MCATs are over!), so stay tuned.

Safari has weird cache issues sometimes; if the site isn’t appearing properly, please clear your cache! Please check out the Team page; Adium credits and thank-you’s are there.

Some notes, mostly for newcomers to Adium: Chat support is not finished in 0.50, but will be coming. AIM File Sending is in its first iteration for us, and is somewhat crashy; your mileage may vary. Yahoo File Sending can only send files up to 1 MB in size. Jabber support (with file transfer) is in; support for specifying your Jabber server will be coming soon. Contact List preferences are not done being rewritten, which is why they look so different from the other prefs; there is also a known issue with the size of the Advanced preferences at the moment. Big message view changes are coming in the near future. The status system for protocols besides AIM is incomplete, but we’ve got big plans in that department, too. Our forums are active and ‘staffed’ by both developers and a wonderful bunch of dedicated users; please join us there, or in IRC!

Hey everybody, welcome to the new site 🙂 A few things I need to talk about.

We didn’t feel comfortable calling this Adium 2.0, because to us 2.0 implies that it’s finished. It’s not finished. There is a whole lot more we have planned for this app, and honestly it’s currently about halfway to where we’d like to see it. Changing our “show” name to Adium X allows us to use a version number we’re more comfortable with :-). The application is still Adium, just our show name has changed.

Starting today we’re moving to a weekly release schedule. Weekly releases will allow us to produce more reliable releases, and give us more time for perfecting and testing our changes. It also means that it will be easier for everyone to keep up to date. Starting with 0.50, we’ve added built in version checking, so Adium should let you know when a new release is available.

Thanks for the support 🙂

Currently there are a few bugs in the current source:

  • If you use any jabber host other than, Adium may possibly crash, but should.
  • While hidden, we currently spawn new windows. This causes adium to become unhidden (is that a word?! 😀 ). We are currently unsure of what we should do with new content at the moment. We could either throw it in the trash, or feed it to Laura’s gecko.
  • File sending may crash you. It may not. You decide!
  • Adium currently does not run on Microsoft Windows. Sorry. 😀

I think this is it for now. I’ll run through the forums later today and make sure that I didn’t miss any major ones.

I’m still not sure what University I’m going to be attending next year. I was accepted to University of Maryland and University of Rochester. Send me some mail, I’d love to hear from students, teachers, alumni. 🙂
