Adium 1.0 is finally out. I find it to be vastly better than iChat, so I can’t resist using it, even though I have found it to have had a number of crippling bugs. The bug that drove me to the 1.0 beta series from the commonly used 0.8.x release was a problem where Adium wouldn’t reconnect if it disconnected due to your computer going to sleep, so when you came back from lunch you had to quit the application and restart. Then a month or so ago, a bug was introduced that periodically hosed the networking on my Mac entirely every once in awhile, forcing me to restart the computer. The fact that I still use Adium in spite of the headaches it has given me tells you how good it is otherwise.
