Mac OS X only: Free, open source multi-client chat application Adium has released a new version rife with new and improved features. The most notable change is the Adium menu bar item, which now provides access to all of your contacts (Option-click for a contacts-only drop-down), accounts, status, and current chats.

Aside from all of that, the latest version includes gobs of bug fixes, so if you're on a Mac, go grab the latest of this free piece of instant messaging genius.
