    Excellent! Go team duckie! :) Sounds like there are a number of nice little updates, keeping Adium firmly in place as the best open source app on OS X.

    Awesome!

    Looking forward to randomly harassing people on FBChat who haven't seen me in years.

    Great! Go Adium! With the support for personal messages, they're up to par with the official MSN Mac client when it comes to features. Now there's absolutely no reason to go back (unless to the Windows client for voice/video).

    Congratulations Adium team!

    The ability to send/receive offline messages in MSN is still sorely missed.

    I downloaded this yesterday, and read on macupdate that a "known issue" was that logging into facebook chat on adium, would log you out on the browser (and vice-versa).


    I was logged in on both, testing it with a windows buddy. I was getting messages from him on both the browser and adium. So, no logging out after all? :confused:


    Good update IMO.

    Does it still have trouble logging in thought :p

    I always loved Adium but it would forever fail to login, might try it again if it's got all these updates and bug fixes.

    It's funny, because that's exactly how I felt about Messenger for Mac, and thats why I started using Adium.


    I even tried Messenger for Mac 7.1 last night (or is it 7.0.1? Don't know, don't care).

    Worked fine for about 20 minutes, then all of a sudden I got logged out. Then clicked sign in again..since I was mid-conversation with people, and was stuck on the "signing in, rotating msn logo" screen.

    Then opened up adium again, and logged in, in a fraction of the time Messenger takes.

    Until M$ gets their act together, I'm sticking with adium.

    Buddies were deleted and nicknames were reverted in this update for me.

    Is it not included in this update? I remember reading in the beta notes that it had been addressed. Though it was fairly ambigious and I don't know whether it meant it was fixed or not:

    Just set it as your 'Status'.

    Look under the Status menu on the menubar.

    This really is not Adium's fault, but it's the new DNS resolving mechanism used in Leopard.

    Leopard uses the 'new' way to resolve DNS, it request the SRV record instead of the 'A' record. Some DNS servers do not handle this properly. A quick workaround in Leopard is to flush your DNS cache. Type this into Terminal:
    Code:
    dscacheutil -flushcache
    See these for reference:

    @Osarkon: I don't think it's included, since I've tried to use it and got the usual "cancel/auto-send later" dialogue box.

    @gusius: agreed.

    MSN offline messaging support will be added in a future 1.3.x update. Most other protocols have it already.

    Thank you very much, I honestly thought I'd just be ripped apart... Cheers for the help.

    I have this problem. If I'm logged into fb chat on adium my facebook auth. certificate expires every time I load a new page on my browser. It's really irritating. Any word on a fix?

    As soon as Facebook launches their XMPP service (announced, but no release date yet) we'll drop our reverse engineered implementation; that will fix this problem.
