“Adium releases 1.4 beta with IRC and Twitter support”

As nice as it is to get stable updates to Adium, 1.3.4 is overshadowed by the release of 1.4 beta, which includes support for Twitter and IRC.

1.4b also has a ton of other improvements and fixes, especially in the area of group chats. […] Why do group chats matter so much? Well, for one thing, Twitter for Adium runs in a group chat window, so the devs likely had to get that part of the interface running smoothly to roll out Twitter support.

Oh, that makes sense. I’m suddenly a little less annoyed that Twitter support in a stable release of Adium is so far away. (Also, I don’t give a fuck anymore because there are usable Twitter clients on the Mac again.)
