Yahoo! Chat Room Clients?

in Mac Software edited January 2014
Since Yahoo! killed their Java chat protocol, there have apparently been no new chat room programs for Mac.

Browser Java applet chat no longer works.

ChitChatX relied on the Java protocol and no longer works.

Charla is apparently a PowerPC-only app that runs buggy on Intel Macs and appears to have no been updated since 2003.

Adium does chat rooms, but you have to type in the entire room name (properly) and the list of users is not sorted. The beta version seems to suffer from this limitation as well.

And, of course, the new Yahoo! Messenger Beta doesn't support chat rooms.

Does anybody know of any other projects in the pipeline? Googling yielded no pertinent current results.
