Adium 1.4 downloads, and the next step

We’re thrilled by the response so far to Adium 1.4, with over 540,000 downloads in just 4 days.

We’re already hard at work on Adium 1.4.1. Please be sure to file constructive reports on Adium Trac – commenting in an existing ticket, if there is one, rather than clogging the system with duplicate tickets – to help us triage the amount important issues to address. Overall, the response has been resoundingly positive; please work with us as we continue to refine this huge release 🙂

  1. You guys are awesome!

  2. As a long-time Adium user, I was getting worried that development would cease, but with 1.4 finally being released, I know that the project is still alive and kicking.

    I wanted to mention, too, that at work, I was watching a web conference from the company WhatCounts, and when they were switching screens, one of the presenters had Adium running on her Mac. Adium in the workplace? For the win!

  3. Hi,

    I’m using Adium for almost a year now. I really love the program, it always works perfectly.
    but recently I have the problem that the messages send by my contacts to me, not always arrive. I can talk to them, but they can’t respond. is there anything I can do about that?
    I’ve downloaded an older version and installed it because I thought that might work but it didn’t. pleas help me I don’t want to use an other program, but of course it has to work than.

    I’m using MAX OS X version 10.6.4

    grtz Jonas

  4. Come on,Always support you!

  5. @Jonas Bouckaert
    I think you will get more and better help in the forum, post your question there and also add what IM clients and networks your contacts are using.

  6. @Niklas

    thank you!

  7. I must confirm the same kind of trouble as Jonas. The newest problem is using ICQ protocol and the second party is using the original ICQ software on WinXP. I could see the other party is composing the message but I don’t receive such message then.

    The other (and older because I have it also with previous versions) problem is I couldn’t receive any ICQ message sent in time I’m offline when I become online. I should use ICQ in my mobile phone to receive those messages. I’m also using jabber protocol and it works well so it looks it is a trouble with ICQ protocol support.

  8. @ ZP my problems are with MSN, so it’s not just ICQ…

  10. I ask, where is the ability to disable user icons in the contacts list?

    In version 1.3.9 I had a nice sun of gadu-gadu on the right side of each contact, now in version 1.4 I have these stupid user icons (avatars)!

    Please make a option to disable the icons that users in contact list.

  11. @1.4Hater:

    Go to preferences and click on the “Appearance” tab. Click on the “Customize…” button next to the “List Layout” drop-down. Then uncheck the box that says “Show User Icon.”

  12. I dont know why but the last update didnt work and my old version was lost as well. What can I do to recover all my saved accounts, settings, etc???

  15. hello, I think Adium is the best instant messaging program, but recently with version 1.4 I have some problem with the chat on facebook, I have continuous disconnections and reconnections!
    Someone can help me!

  16. Congrats… I’ve been using since the n beta releases… it’s very polished and a very good piece of software.

    Looking to see 64bits support for next release 🙂

    Can’t you people read?
    Although I’ll admit I do find it useful that you guys have posted that you’re having problems with Adium 1.4 right here in the comments. Now I know to wait for 1.4.1 since 1.3.10 is working fine for me.

  18. I installed 1.4, then installed the newest Mac OSX updates released today. Now ICQ won’t log me in.

  19. hi there! after upgrade to 1.4 i can’t connect to ICQ…it always ask me a password … how to fix it? thnx

  20. I heard that there is a way to connect to Oracle messenger using Adium. I don’t see it listed as an account type however. Can I do this? If so, how?

  21. Hi I have the same problem as kukursu, when trying to connect to ICQ it always ask for the password and can’t open…

  22. Same password problem here. Asks for password but will not open ICQ. Just asks over and over for the password.

  23. same problem, asks for the password and cant login when i tryin to connect to my ICQ account

  24. Same password problem: for the last three days Adium asks for ICQ password, which is already entered, and would not log me in. The password is correct.

  25. Same password problem with ICQ for me. Sometimes I can login, but next day I’m not able to get through again. Adium restart does not help.

  26. also password trouble with icq – need help!!

  27. I just now also got the dreadful password problem. 🙁

  28. The ICQ password issue started for me this morning the 15th of November. Can not log in. Keeps asking for password.

  29. For all, who have troubles with ICQ connection, try to read following tickets:

    It worked for me. By the way, searching in Support instead of posting requests in Blog, was what helped me in the first place 😉

  30. The same problem here. Adium ask for password again and again and doesnt connect. Password is right.

  31. Many thx to Lojza (off topic: predpokladam, ze Cech, tak tedy diky krajane)

    My icq account is back and works well.

  32. Jojo, my cesi mame zlate ruce preci 🙂
    //sorry for off-topic

    By the way, if this is as wide-spread issue as it seems, it would be quite nice of the admins to publish some note on this, directly in the blog. What do you think..?

  33. Same problem as well, please solve it soon:-)

  34. Thanks Lojza! I was going insane with the ICQ problem!

  35. Thx buddies, especially Lojza, it really helped 🙂 (jsem myslel ze v cesku ty macy nejsou tak rozsireny :-D)
