Adium 1.3 boosts performance, expands features

Adium 1.3 released

Adium, the multi-service instant messaging client for the Mac, has been upgraded to v1.3. The update is said to contain several important changes, including "major" performance improvements, noticeable when Adium is signed into multiple services simultaneously, or when apps with intense hard drive demands are running in the background. The client has also been given a redesigned Get Info window, now known as the Contact Inspector; it has a completely revised interface, and changes how combined contacts are displayed and managed.

Users can now also enter searches from the Standard Contact List window, and log into Facebook Chat, though Adium's developers warn that this will log people out of the Facebook website. Adium is a free download, and the DMG file is approximately 22.1MB.

    It's a pity...

    I love Adium, but until it supports receiving and sending video over MSN, I will be forced to continue using aMSN.
