The worst thing that can happen to an application is to lose its popularity due to a lack of updates. But Adium, even without an update since October 2010, is still one of the most used instant messaging programs in OS X. And there is good news, because Adium has recently been updated to version 1.5 with several improvements and new features as a result of the work of both developers and volunteer programmers who have breathed life into OS X’s most famous duck.
The interface has been improved and adapted to the style of OS X Lion (the most significant changes are in the conversation history window), and even the icons have been polished thanks to the contribution of designer Bogdan Mihaiciuc. Performance has improved because Adium now runs in 64 bits, although this requires users to update all installed add-ons.
Something that also deserves a mention is that Adium is now compatible with Growl 1.3 notifications, and even carries its own notification system called Mist for those of us who decided not to pay for the latest version of Growl. Of course, all notifications are configurable and can be disabled if we don’t want distractions on our desktop.
Adium remains free , and the update is now available. You need OS X 10.6.8 (Snow Leopard) or higher and an Intel-based Mac to work.
