There's an update on audio and video development status on the adium blog.
They still don't give any date estimates though.

I agree that file transfers are slow, but I've never had a problem with Adium otherwise and I've been using it for maybe 3 years now. I love this app!

Is anybody having a problem with MSN contacts? Whenever mine log off, they disappear from my list. They are there again if I do a sign off-and-on, (or if they log back on), but this just sort of "bugs" me. :D Any ideas?

Adium is fantastic. So customizable, so dependable, so subtle. And A/V might be enough to fend off the oncoming Trillian!

Audio and video are in development, see this (quite long) message.

Audio chat support won't come anytime soon. It was planned to lay down the foundations during this summer, but that project got cancelled:

Maybe next year.

This app totally rocks. Is there any chance they will include the google talk libraries for doing audio? Then I won't have to use iChat anymore!

There are a couple annoying things about it (when you paste in a link, you'll see the link text, but the other person will only see the URL, for one - especially annoying with Wikipedia), but overall it's a really nice app, and it's simplified my IMing a whole lot. Now I can be on 5 IM accounts with just 1 program!

Very customizable and reliable... also saves me from having multiple chat apps open at once.

They should just give us a better file transfer, then it would be perfect for my needs
