Adium X

Adium X is currently developing an XML-based log format. This is version 0.3:

<chat date="2005-11-20" account="mactigerz" service="AIM" version="0.3">
    <event type="windowOpened" time=""/>
    <message sender="chz16" time="">'sup?</message>
    <message sender="mactigerz" time="">trying to get to work on the the new XML log format</message>
    <message sender="chz16" time="">Doesn't sound bad.</message>
    <message sender="chz16" time="">Providing you have the log specs, of course.</message>
    <message sender="mactigerz" time="">that's what I'm creating.</message>
    <status type="offline" sender="chz16" time=""/>
    <status type="online" sender="chz16" time=""/>
    <status type="away" sender="mactigerz" time="">brb, working on the XML log format</status>
    <event type="windowClosed" time=""/>
</chat>

This format remains under development, so this page may not reflect the current version of the format.
