Still waiting for a native Jabber client

I am a Jabber person, and it manages all my IM contacts on different networks on my own Jabber server. On Windows I am using the excellent JAJC that is very stable and feature rich with full unicode support. On Mac OS X it is a different story. The most prominent client application is probably Nitro, which sports Coca based code and native Mac OS X look and feel. However, on the functionality side it is far behind what JAJC has on Windows. Moreover, the last stable version is 0.5, which was released in April 2003. The release of 0.6 has been postponded again and again. I've downloaded a binary build of what was in CVS in October last year, but it still does not have the functionality I want, for example manually constructing Jabber XML packets. More bad news - according to this email, it seems the lead developer of Nitro is calling it a quit as he felt dissatisfied with the current code base. I am not sure whether a new stable version of Nitro will ever see the light...

There are alternatives, but none of them feels "native" to Mac OS X. I can get some X11 client (gaim for example) compiled to run under Panther's X11.app, but that does not feel integrated. The closest one is probably Psi for Mac OS X, which runs with the need of X11, and it is the one that I am currently using. However, a ported Qt/C++ application can never feel the same as a native Cocoa app. Even though it has Aqua-looking buttons and scroll bars, it just lacks that Mac OS X native feel attaching to it. While it is very functional and powerful, it still feels like a ported Windows app...

But I guess I can't really complain when I can do nothing to contribute. I am still waiting for that ultimate native Jabber client for Mac OS X...
