Well, Adium 1.0 is coming out and so now is time to look at our official announcement. Here is what I was thinking. Let me know what you think:
We are saddened to announce that there will be no future versions of Fire. There are several reasons for this end, but the most notable is the loss of developers. Fire's development had dwindled to few developers who does not wish to continue the project alone. In addition, another major contributing factor is the fact that all but one of Fire's IM libraries is no longer in active development.
Should be "few developers who do not wish".
The good news is that two of Fire's developers have joined the Adium team and have written a transition path. Adium 1.0, upon first launch, will import your Fire accounts, away messages, groups, buddies, and logs into Adium. For future updates and IM needs, we suggest that you look at Adium.
That sounds fine.
We should probably talk about what to do about the website/mailing lists/forums/etc. I think we should keep the code available even if it is no longer being developed in case anyone volunteers to take it over.
