Adium 1.3.8

Wednesday, November 4th, 2009

Adium 1.3.8 is now available. This release contains the connection fixes for Facebook chat, as well as a small fix for Snow Leopard users to fix the events list. There’s more Snow Leopard fixes on the upcoming 1.4 beta release which we felt were too broad of changes to include in the 1.3.8 release, sorry. An updated beta for 1.4 with the Facebook fix will be coming shortly through the usual channels. Enjoy!

NB: If you’re getting the CAPTCHA popup, disconnect and wait 10 minutes before you try to connect again. CAPTCHA itself isn’t working, but the message just means to calm down trying to connect.

Adium 1.3.7

Friday, October 16th, 2009

Adium 1.3.7 is now available. This release contains a security fix and fixes issues where privacy lists weren’t working for AIM/ICQ users. An updated version of the Facebook chat plugin is also included to address problems with the CAPTCHA check. Additionally, iChat emoticons will now work correctly on Snow Leopard.

Adium 1.4b10 is also now available containing the above fixes, as well as a few other Snow Leopard fixes (such as XMPP SSL connections not working in certain cases, support for remembering to use “substitutions”), QQ client version support, a fix for logs being written incorrectly, and a bunch of other fixes.

Enjoy. 🙂

Adium 1.3.6

Thursday, August 20th, 2009

Adium 1.3.6 is now available. It includes an updated version of libpurple which fixes the vulnerability revealed earlier this week which has the potential to allow another user to run code by sending you a specially crafted message over the MSN protocol plus many Yahoo regressions from 1.3.5, one of those being the problem where Yahoo contacts had signed off still appeared as online.

1.3.6 also features an updated version of the Facebook chat plugin, fixing a number of issues, which were present in Adium 1.3.5 including unwanted email notifications, dropped messages and missing contact icons.  We therefore strongly recommend you update!

Meanwhile, work continues on Adium 1.4, the next major release, with tons of progress so far.  You can join Adium 1.4 beta testing by enabling ‘Update to beta versions when available’ in your current version of Adium or by visiting the beta page.

Happy Thursday!

1.4 beta, 1.3.4 release

Monday, May 18th, 2009

I am very pleased to announce the availability of Adium 1.3.4, our latest stable release. This features mostly improvements to the core: an updated libpurple, and an updated Facebook chat plugin. This is a highly-recommended upgrade, as it fixes an issue where Facebook would connect to the server too fast, utilizing too much bandwidth. 1.3.4 is likely going to be our final release for 10.4 users.

Along with our release of 1.3.4, I’m terribly eager to announce the first of our series of betas for Adium 1.4, which features two new protocols, IRC and Twitter, as well as a ridiculously long list of improvements, including the latest and greatest in the world of libpurple. 1.4 requires 10.5, so sorry Tiger users. 🙁

From support for contacts in multiple groups, to an all-new authorizations window (which pulls together all authorization requests into one window), and more changes than you can think of, this is definitely an excellent release. Give it a shot, report any bugs, and enjoy your newfound pleasures!

If you’re looking for a group chat message style, since you can now set it independently of normal chats, feel free to check out my favorite, yMous. yMous has all the bells and whistles, and even includes topic support for Jabber and IRC chats.

We’re always looking for talented help to improve our code with us! See how you can help. Patches always welcome!

A big thanks to our host Network Redux, who recently moved us over to an even better hardware setup and our CDN provider CacheFly whose download speeds are blowing our mind.

Adium 1.3.3 now available!

Thursday, February 19th, 2009

The Adium team is proud to announce the availability of Adium 1.3.3.  This release sports a whole bunch of improvements and bug fixes, including smarter behavior with offline messaging, better group chat reliablity, and Facebook awesomeness (like showing the person’s Facebook info in the Contact Inspector)… as well as a slew of Gadu-Gadu, ICQ, MSN, and MySpace improvements from the libpurple team. Check out the version history for the full list.

Adium 1.3.3 beta 1

Thursday, December 25th, 2008

Just in time that we can pretend we meant to do it as a holiday gift, Adium 1.3.3b1 is out! The biggest improvements are from updating to libpurple 2.5.3, but there’s an assortment of other changes as well.

Adium 1.3.2

Friday, October 10th, 2008

Adium 1.3.2 is out. As a big fan of being terse, you can take a look at the version history for the full set of changes.

Adium 1.3: What is the air speed velocity of a flying duck?

Monday, August 25th, 2008

I’m happy to announce Adium 1.3, a major release seven months in the making. This release improves almost every aspect of Adium, ranging from performance and memory to Facebook chat support, and from user interface polish to much improved MSN support with personal messages (finally!). A brand new, gorgeous Contact Inspector brings together all a contact’s information in one place – coalescing combined contacts’ information and accessing your Apple Address Book to give you at-a-glance information, and intuitive live searching in the Standard Contact List makes it a snap to find your friends. Check out the full list of changes: 261 fixed tickets in all.

The Adium development community also saw some changes with this release, welcoming new contributors and developers as well as returning team members. If you’d like to get involved, check out our Contributing to Adium page or drop by our Adium IRC Chat to see how you can help out. We’re a fun community, and working on Adium is a great learning experience with many challenges for beginners and experienced developers alike.

We greatly appreciate the wide array of web services and support donated by NetworkRedux, and the servers and bandwidth provided by our download host CacheFly, which handle the inevitable Slashdot and Digg load spikes without the slightest trouble.

Adium 1.2.7

Friday, July 4th, 2008

Adium 1.2.7 is now available. It’s just like Adium 1.2.6 except without the major XMPP problem which snuck into that release.

Adium 1.2.6: The client version you are using is too old. NOT!

Tuesday, July 1st, 2008

This just in! Adium 1.2.6 available less than 24 hours after an ICQ network upgrade rendered previous versions unable to connect. Credit goes to our good friends over at Pidgin for fixing libpurple, our mutual services library, so quickly. 🙂 Libpurple 2.4.3 also fixes several issues with the Yahoo!, Yahoo! Japan, and QQ instant messaging services.

A few other bugs are fixed in Adium 1.2.6, too. A bug which has been around since Adium 0.50 which caused “Contact Came Back” to be displayed sometimes when contacts would sign off has finally been fixed – a single ! was in the wrong place! Also, one of the most common crashes in 1.2.x has been corrected, and message windows will once again remember their position on Mac OS X 10.4. You can check out the version history for all the details.

We’re hard at work on Adium 1.3, which is going to be an awesome release. You can check out the beta or learn about contributing time, code, or money. Remember, Adium is a free, open source, volunteer effort. 🙂
