The Adium forums are now divided into 3 categories. We hope that this makes it easier to use the forums for discussion, requests, and bug reporting. The current categories are:

General & Requests – Adium talk, feature requests, General discussion

Bugs – Bug reporting and discussing

Xtras – Xtras requests, showing off, creation help, and discussion

We will be moving Xtras and Bugs posts from the General forum as they are posted into. Thanks for your patience during the transition 🙂

Adium 0.63 is now available!

0.63 brings support for the sametime protocol, improvements to tab grouping and arranging, improved behavior when hidden, better support for typing notifications, improved sound code, and much more.

Check the version history for a complete list of what’s new 🙂

Saved window positions and contact list auto-resizing preferences will be reset when you upgrade to 0.63. Auto-resizing preferences are in Advanced -> Contact List -> Auto-resizing.

Yeah, Friday came and went. We’ve made some huge under-the-hood improvements which, as with any far-reaching set of changes, brought with them a cute lil’ collection of bugs.

Once we get those ironed out, Adium X 0.63 will be coming your way.

I’m out for two weeks, first for vacation and then for work. Later 🙂

Perez from the forums has written a tutorial for making Message Views. Get to it at and keep those message views coming.

Yay! The Xtras! site is suffering overbooking. There are about 25 xtras to be approved, Benjamin’s out of town and summer is affecting the mod team speed, so don’t worry if your xtra is taking long to be approved, we are doing our best.

Thanks a lot for all that cool stuff being submitted! 🙂

If you’re crashing on launch in 0.62, navigate to (from your home folder):

~/Library/Application Support/Adium 2.0/Users/Default/

and delete the file “Sounds.plist”. We made changes to how sound preferences are stored and some users’ custom sound sets are causing issues. Resetting the sound preferences by deleting this file should clear everything up.

Adium 0.62 is now available! 🙂

This release fixes an issue that was causing server-side contact list corruption (in rare situations) and is a recommended upgrade for all Adium users.

0.62 also brings an assortment of new custom sorting options, improvements to contact alerts, improved proxy support, and minor changes to many other areas of Adium. See the version history for a full listing of what’s changed.

A very small number of users have reported a nasty bug where their AIM serverside list was partially deleted. We have found the source of the bug and fixed it for Adium X 0.62 (available within 24 hours of this post).

For users who were affected, I’ve written a small program which will use Adium X’s preference files (which are independent of the serverside list though not sufficient to fully reconstruct it) to create an AIM .blt file suitable for importing via the official AIM client (File->Import while signed on). The .blt file (AIMContacts.blt, created on your desktop) contains all buddies which have ever been on an AIM account’s buddy list in Adium X; groups are not included, as Adium does not store that information locally, so they are all listed in the “Buddies” group. Hopefully this will help anyone who was unfortunate enough to run into this problem. We’re sorry for any inconvenience it caused 🙂
