Popular IM client for Mac OS X Tiger and Leopard
Adium, the free instant messaging application for Mac OS X, has reached version 1.3.3 RC2, adding a small fix and a few updates for French-speaking users. The new software is available for free download right here on our web site.
According to the changelog, Adium 1.3.3 RC2 fixes AIM Direct IM messages always showing up as autoreplies. While there may still be some intermittent misbehavior in that regard, users are encouraged to submit debug logging to #11554, in the case of any buggy behavior. French and French Canadian updates have been included in this second release candidate of Adium 1.3.3.
Adium replicates many of the features (and the look) of Apple's own IM client, iChat. Adium combines an array of IM protocols, such as AOL Instant Messenger (including ICQ and .Mac), Jabber (including Google Talk), MSN Messenger, Yahoo! Messenger, Bonjour, Gadu-Gadu, Novell Groupwise and Lotus Sametime. The IM client also gives users the possibility to connect with multiple types of accounts at the same time, combining all their friend groups into one big list. Supported buddy icons include AIM, MSN, and Yahoo! Adium has a customizable appearance as well.
When first released to the public, version 1.3 of Adium added a slew of new features and enhancements, including a complete redesign of the Contact Inspector (formerly the Get Info Window), a Facebook Chat service, a search field to the Standard Contact List window and more. The Adam Iser-developed IM client for Mac requires an Intel or PPC Macintosh computer and Mac OS X 10.4 (Tiger) or higher. Use the address below to grab the latest version of the application.
