Ok, let's remember why Adium MUST live and evolve:

-Yahoo Messenger (for Mac) is died, I just use it for file transfer with WC (Window Computer) Yahoo users; I'd like a better integration with it to stop to have to open it.

- Facebook: I have more FB accounts, Adium allows me to chat on all, which is impossible through a single browser.

- Skype is a tragic must have. The day Adium will be able to allow me to not have to open a Skype 6 (which I use just in desperate case from a disk image, while I've constantly open 2.8) I will even stop to open it!

What about the many other chat programs? They are almost all abandoned, maybe the most important integration should be with QQ

Yes, a lot of work still to do, to deserve the 6 stars, for now, I'm sorry, just 5!

I used to use adium exclusively years ago and I've also used the cross platform Pidgin from which Adium was created. Now i wanted to find out if there was any reason to continue using Adium at this point. messages/ichat seem to do the most popular services adium was pushed for, there is FaceTime for video/audio there is Skype for cross platform AV for mac to other operating systems to communicate. I also noticed adium isn't updated as much as it used to be so I was wondering if the project is dying off or has died off.

I don't use Adium so much for the extended services selection as I do for it's theme-able-ness. Messages/iChat still take up a lot more space on my screen than I'd like (even with today's screen sizes) and I've got myself situated with some very compact themes in Adium.

I hope the project isn't dying out as you suggest!

Here in Europe iChat is far from being popular, also I prefer a good multi service app than bunch of apps running at the same time.

The Adium Project is alive. We released Adium 1.5.10 yesterday and 1.6 is on the way. :-)

This would be best implemented as a third-party plugin. Nobody on the Adium Team uses VK.

"Changed the default tab switching shortcuts for new users to Control-Tab/Control-Shift-Tab, to match Safari."

Yes! I think this should be the default shortcut globally for all app and windows where the frontmost window contains some kind of tabs.

You can't possibly be surprised or expect people to run to your rescue. It's been just short of a decade since Apple started shifting to Intel.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Apple's_transition_to_Intel_processors

A decade. The "Friends" finale aired the year before the transition was announced. YouTube started the same year as the Intel switch. Do you remember the world before YouTube?

Think about that. And maybe adjust your expectations accordingly.

PowerPC is dead. It never made it out of the naughties.

No need to be a sarcastic, condescending, smug know-it-all.

Some of us can't afford new computers as readily as others.

I don't know if this is happening to anyone else, but I'm having massive trouble connecting to Facebook recently. Through the chat protocols (Jabber), it is a hit or miss if it'll connect each time I start up my system, and under the direct Facebook protocols, it won't even tell me everyone who is online, only a random selection at any given time.

I'm starting to get tired of all this because it means a constant battle every day with Facebook, and that messes up my use of it on my mobile, not just my messenger.

I tried going to the Adium site, but everything there just confused me, so I don't know if anyone else is having this issue or if there is a solution.

I was hoping someone here could help.

This is an issue with Facebook and all chat clients. There does not seem to be a fix, but I did see a post about it on the Facebook developers page...

Right, that's what MU says so not sure why you always feel compelled to restate what we already know.

Cgc: You don't seem to understand the concept behind this, obviously. Sorry, but the listing was only updated due to my comment. What good is a listing site if it lists outdated software?

Don't shoot the messenger (as so common nowadays) and note that the version my comment has been posted to is 1.5.6.

Kindly, MJ

Don't know if this is just with us but on our 4 computers with Adium 1.5.6 file transfer doesn't work at all no matter which service we use. The text one types disappear from the chat window after being send.
Weird....

Regarding file transfer, please see http://adium.im/help/pgs/AdvancedFeatures-FileTransfer.html.

I haven't heard of the second issue but it's curious. I would like to take a closer look but this is not a good place for support. Please post to http://forums.cocoaforge.com/viewforum.php?f=13.

Thanks for the link. Not very useful to me though.
Have been a Adium user for many many years and never encountered these problems. Just installed the new version that's it. Didn't change anything in the settings.
I have posted on their forum on previous issues. Never got any answer. I'm getting somewhat lazy....

You're saying file transfers worked flawlessly before 1.5.6? I find that hard to believe. For one, because they can be flaky depending on the network you're in and also because there don't seem to be any code changes in 1.5.6 that would influence file transfer functionality. :)

There have been occasions when the file transfer crashed the app but rather rare. But since Adium auto updated to 1.5.6 nothing works not even Bonjour. I have been using Adium since it is on OSX.
Did have problems from time to time but never that severe. It happen on all 4 Macs since the update (ML & SL)
Trying some troubleshooting. Will let you know the results here. Thanks!

(Well! Transfers have never been working for us on Yahoo. But Bonjour, Jabber AIM and MSN where fine. Few issues)

Re installled the App but keeps on crashing on most transfer.

No matter which service?

Again, I don't think this is a good venue for 1-to-1 support. Let's take it to http://forums.cocoaforge.com/viewforum.php?f=13.

With Skype able to merge MSN and Skype, i'm actually now no more in needs to use Adium, as iMessage does google, Skype does the other 2, QQ still the best alone, and on ICQ i think i'm the last one left (so, no point to even login).
Sadly Adium could have been a huge hit if they would manage to do the video / calls. but they never did, so now it's probably going to fall behind...
Also in markets like mine where internet is not best, Adium often fails to deliver messages, or retrieve them, making it very unstable, recently just keep disconnecting every few minutes...
