Trillian 5.5 for Windows!

Today we’re taking Trillian 5.5 for Windows out of beta and making it available to everyone. This release continues on our path to fix bugs, improve performance, and release a few important new features.
 

Windows 8 improvements.
We’ve made a few tweaks to the default skin to improve the feel of Trillian on Windows 8. While we plan a larger overhaul for a future release, these changes should make Trillian feel more at home for those of you using Windows 8 today.
 

Per-chat muting.
You can now mute individual contacts or group chats for 1 hour, until 8am, or indefinitely. Even better, the mute state will synchronize between your devices automatically, meaning muted Windows won’t send push notifications to your mobile devices!
 

Do not disturb.
The Trillian network now supports a new status, do not disturb. When you set yourself DnD, no sounds or notifications will occur, and we’ll also do our best to avoid any other distractions such as window flashing.
 

Other improvements.
Yahoo users will appreciate reduced clutter in their chat windows with 5.5, as we now do a better job only printing status alerts here. A few bugs related to window flashing were fixed, and we’ve also fixed a few bugs with Twitter and our mail engine. A new “simple” chat view has been added that attempts to stay minimal but in a more modern style. You can view the full changelog for the new release here.
 

We hope you enjoy the new release!
 

UPDATE: Build 15 has been released to address a regression bugs with Astra and XMPP connectivity behind certain firewalls.
 

UPDATE: Build 16 has been released to address additional bug reports.

Trillian Beta Round-Up: Windows, Mac, Linux!

Lots of new betas have now been released to testers. Feel free to give any of these builds a spin, but remember that they are still beta and may still have some bugs. Please let us know what you find!
 

As an additional reminder, Skype support in Trillian is coming to a close with the deprecation of SkypeKit! More details along with our latest knowledge can be found here.
 

Note: If your company uses an in-house Trillian Server, these clients won’t work until you upgrade the server to version 1.1 (also currently in beta).
 

Trillian 5.5 for Windows.
Tweaks to make Trillian feel a bit nicer on Windows 8 (a larger UI refresh is forthcoming), a new sign in window, support for Trillian group chats (with @mentions, topics, ops/voice, display names, and flags), per-contact muting, do not disturb status, and many more fixes and improvements! Download and changelog.
 

Trillian 3.0 for Mac.
A shiny new Yosemite-inspired user interface brings our Mac product back into the modern era. Also with support for Trillian group chats (with @mentions, topics, ops/voice, display names, and flags), improved support for XMPP group chats, per-contact muting, full screen support, do not disturb status, improved Retina support, Notification Center improvements (avatars, in-line replies), and many more fixes and improvements! Download and changelog.
 

Trillian 1.2 for Linux.
Still only available for Pro customers. Also with support for Trillian group chats (with @mentions, topics, ops/voice, display names, and flags), per-contact muting, do not disturb status, and many more fixes and improvements! Download and changelog.
 

A refresh of our mobile clients is next on the horizon. Stay tuned, and thanks!

Trillian 5.4 for Windows!

Today we’re taking Trillian 5.4 for Windows out of beta and making it available to everyone. As we mentioned during beta, this release is primarily focused on improving existing functionality and fixing bugs. We thought the time was right to take a break from building new features to step back and address some common bugs and complaints. Some of the important bits in 5.4:
 

Facebook chat.
A change on the Facebook side meant that international users suddenly started seeing junk characters in their chat messages instead of properly encoded characters. This has been fixed in 5.4!
 

Mail.
With Outlook.com now supporting the popular IMAP protocol, Trillian’s ability to monitor these email accounts has improved leaps and bounds. See your full mail preview, mark messages as spam, delete messages, etc. In addition, we’ve fixed bugs specific to Yahoo mail, improved our bandwidth consumption when dealing with large messages, and tweaked a few other mail-specific bugs as well.
 

In-house servers.
As more and more of our customers adopt our Trillian Server in-house business solution, we’re also making sure all of our client software can properly connect to an in-house server. Trillian 5.4 accomplishes this for the Windows side, making it possible to connect to servers with self-signed TLS certificates and more.
 

Message windows.
A few long-standing bugs have been addressed in 5.4, including a few very rare corner cases with message window flashing, improvements to group chat windows, fixes to spellcheck, and a few other great tweaks that long-time users will appreciate – including the removal of the tooltip in the edit area that annoyed so many of you!
 

Twitter.
Last but not least, our Twitter engine gets a few nice enhancements in 5.4: see user displaynames and usernames in your stream, fixes for direct messaging, fixes for RTs being cut off, and more.
 

We hope you enjoy the new release!
 

UPDATE: Build 13 has been released to address some reported bugs with MSN mail, XMPP connectivity, and a crash.
 

UPDATE: Build 15 has been released to address a recent Twitter-related crash.

We hope you enjoy all the fixes – let us know how the beta runs for you and if you have any bug reports you think we should tackle before the final release! We also have an early alpha of Trillian 2.0 for Mac that we’re testing, available here – more info to come soon.
