    After trying out Hiss to bring Growl apps to Notification center, I was a bit disappointed because clicking on the popup notification doesn't take you to the app (because it's really a notification for GrowlHelperApp.)

    Happily, however, somebody made a special build of Adium with notification center support. It seems to work fine, so hopefully it'll be officially baked into Adium soon. You can get it here.

    I thought notification center support was for Mac App store apps only? How did they accomplish this? (or how does Apple prevent any app from using it?)

    It's not.

    Tweetbot Alpha also puts notifications in the Notification bar. Website can do it as well. It's just an API.

    Isn't the code base private? How would you create a custom build?

    lol

    Good luck with your randomly modified Adium files. I'm sure there's nothing malicious in there.

    I got it from here, it's not "randomly modified."

    Fair enough, but the person who uploaded that file is not an Adium developer.

    chrome isn't in the app store but it has notification support. So maybe being in the MAS isn't a requirement.

    It's not. Only push notifications (which use Apple's servers) requires MAS.

    Where do I configure the notifications in that build of Adium? I can't see it under Events.

    Found this thread late, but I'm having the same issue. Where do I find the notification center settings for this particular build?
