Adium 0.83 Beta

Friday, July 8th, 2005

The beta version of Adium 0.83 is now available. Happy testing! 🙂

Of Xcode 2.0 and 2.1 (follow-up).

forum user shorshe sent me the following:

File:   /SourceCache/DevToolsBase/DevToolsBase-515/pbxcore/Target.subproj/PBXBuildSettingsDictionary.m 
Line: 111
Function: PBXBuildSettingsDictionary_getValueForKeyPath

value should be a string, but it is <NSCFArray:0x03a69c80>

Couldn't open /Users/[deleted]/Desktop/adium-0.82/Adium.xcodeproj/Adium.xcode.

Reason: *** -[NSCFArray length]: selector not recognized [self = 0x3a69c80].


Uncaught Exception:
*** -[NSCFArray length]: selector not recognized [self = 0x3a69c80]

Stack Backtrace:
The stack backtrace has been logged to the console.

looks like that array in the build settings was an issue after all. I wonder, though, if it wouldn’t still be trivial to write an Xcode 2.0↔2.1 translator. thanks, shorshe.

Of Xcode 2.0 and 2.1.

I notice this in the project.pbxproj file in Adium.xcodeproj:

/* Begin PBXBuildStyle section */
342E171507284F310054D77A /* Deployment-Debug */ = {
isa = PBXBuildStyle;
buildSettings = {
name = "Deployment-Debug";

other than the value of OTHER_CFLAGS being an array rather than a string like it was in Adium.xcode in [12214], I can’t see any significant differences here. would somebody who still has Xcode 2.0 please try the following, and tell me whether it works? (you can get the answer to me through IRC, or PM me on the forum.)

  1. mkdir Adium.xcode
  2. cp Adium.xcode{proj,}/project.pbxproj (copies the project.pbxproj file from Adium.xcodeproj to Adium.xcode)
  3. open Adium.xcode
  4. click Build.

Adium X 0.82 released

Friday, June 17th, 2005

Adium X 0.82 is now available for download. It sports several significant improvements – including an OTR Encryption advanced preferences pane, better MSN display name handling, and ignore support in group chats – and nearly 40 bug and crash fixes. See the version history for all the details; there you can also see what a huge success the Trac bug reporting system has been, for which we’d like to thank you! We’ve updated to Growl 0.70, a major release from the Growl team, and to libgaim 1.3.1 which brings important security fixes.

Translation continues at a fast pace as well: Adium X 0.82 adds Catalan, Czech, Icelandic, Norwegian, Simplified Chinese, and Swedish translations. The About Adium page has the full list of current translations.

Apple Design Awards Special Mention

Friday, June 10th, 2005

The Adium team would like to thank Apple for the special mention of Adium X in the WWDC 2005 Apple Design Awards in the Best Use of Open Source category. This is truly an honor and we appreciate their recognition of Adium! 🙂

Adium Xtras site update

Monday, June 6th, 2005

Yes, it’s been longer than expected for to be available again. We’re still working through some domain transfer issues, or so those who actually know about such things tell me 🙂 In the meantime, the site is up at… it’s effectively read-only, though, as the login function isn’t working at the new site yet so new submissions are not possible.

Beta test of 0.82

Thursday, May 26th, 2005

The beta of the next Adium release is now up on the beta page. 🙂

Blocking in 0.81

Wednesday, May 25th, 2005

As many of you know, blocking is currently not functioning very well. Some fixes that jmelloy introduced, which I backported to the 0.8, should clear this problem up. Hopefully. We’ve also added some console logs to help us debug any problems you’re having.

By the way, anyone in Hawaii looking for a programmer? I’m currently looking for a job out here. I’ve worked as a web developer in the past, but, ideally, I’d like to do something OS X related. Feel free to contact me directly.

Further site updates

Wednesday, May 25th, 2005

– Visiting the blog from our atom feed should now work correctly
– Community links have been added to the main page, along with a source download link
– The documentation has been seriously beefed up and now includes an easy to use side-navigation-thing

I hope the documentation and bug reporting / requesting are easier to understand now.

It’s pretty exciting (and scary at the same time) to see all the tickets that have been file so far – but I love having all those bugs on file, so keep up the good work 🙂

Improved screenshot gallery

Sunday, May 22nd, 2005

I just wanted to stop here for a moment to announce that we have now a screenshot gallery engine that is more user friendly and leaves the visitor with some stuff to click in order to go back to the image index or another tab. We also have a nice fixed footer for the main page so it doesn’t look too weird on big screens (unless you are using IE/Win, we feel your pain).

And in unrelated news, I recently got a job as tech support guy in a local Apple Reseller, so my spare time is scarce. On the other hand, I’m almost free of my WoW addiction and my mind is more open to use that spare time in different stuff, so I expect to continue helping with Adium when I possibly can, like this small improvement to the fantabulous new site.
