After 4 years of hard work by almost 30 volunteers, instant messaging application Adium
has finally reached version 1.0. The most significant update to the program in over a year and a half, the update brings with it a slew of new features, bug fixes, and added functionality. I've been using the 1.0 since it hit beta on July 4th of last year, and it is truly a treat to interact with. As for the new features, here's the shortlist:
- Working Direct Connect and file transfer.
- Global user profile and buddy icon.
- Xtras manager.
- Completely overhauled interface and icons.
- Redesigned log viewer.
- Major privacy enhancements.
- Full changelog here.
Adium is open-source and available as a free download.
