With the release of Leopard for OS X, the developers of Adium are working to bring video chat to everyone's favorite Mac IM client.
The gang at Macapper have a screenshot and some commentary.
For those that haven't used video chat before – it's a killer app. When I'm traveling, Merrin and I use Skype with video to stay in touch. The native video chat in iChat is good, depending on the network you're using, but Skype is probably the reigning king.
I don't want to get too far ahead of the release (whenever that might be!), but if video chat on Adium is anywhere near as good as Adium itself… CAN NOT WAIT!
