Early this morning, Eion Robb, the author of the Skype plugin for Adium fixed the UTF-8 encoding issue. I think the Skype for Adium plugin is ready for prime time!
Get Skype in your Adium! Download the plugin here. Installation is as simple as double clicking on the file once downloaded, then go to File / Add Account / Skype API. Click “Yes” a few times and you’re good to go!
Check out the Skype API Plugin page at: http://myjobspace.co.nz/images/pidgin/
And send Eion Robb a donation, or at least some thanks for getting this excellent plugin put together!
