Just downloaded the new release for Adium and I have mixed feelings.

While I like to have Xfire in with Adium, it locks Adium up when I log into Xfire....after locking up for a minute or so, the program starts working as normal.

Slightly disappointing... but a start

Xblaze has indeed had stability issues, but those were back in 2006, and has since been perfectly stable.

I have but two suggestions for Xblaze, one of them possibly a tall order:

1) When someone starts playing a game, have a notification similar to when they go away, except instead say what game they are now playing.

2) Full integration into Adium. If Xblaze were fully integrated, it would inevitably have group chat and file transfers, though most probably not the features Xfire has, such as joining players in games and server details - save those for Xflame =)

All in all, Xblaze is invaluable for those looking to get in contact with PC gamers who somehow miraculously don't have any of the other chat clients.

However, it should be noted that Xblaze is not yet compatible with Adium 1.3, but if I remember correctly, the developer is working on an update - sadly, I can't check, as the developer's site is down ... never a good sign.

Xblaze has had its stability issues in the past but it has been recently recompiled for the newer versions of Adium and runs just fine. While xBlaze lacks many of the features of xFire it can allow you to IM friends, see what they're playing, and record what you are playing. For the most part this is what you need.

The plugin works with the now non-beta version 1.0. For the most part it works fine, but I have had problems with messages dropping out when talking to other people.

Although the idea seems nice, it makes adium .89.1 (the latest version) crash instantly. I realize that it was compiled for the beta, but I'm not willing to downgrade adium just for this.

You gave it a one star rating because it doesn't work with a piece of software it doesn't claim to work with? You, sir, are the king of whiny bitches.

From the developer's website:

"Xblaze has officially been discontinued, simply because I don't have the time/interest in maintaining it.

Any others can continue it if so desired. The source is freely available under Subversion:
svn://kaindev.com:8805/freeware/Xblaze"
