Today we’re moving Trillian 5.1 for Windows out of the labs and into release status! Trillian 5.1 is the first version of Trillian to be officially “plugged into Skype” courtesy of the great new SkypeKit for Desktop. This means you can run Skype directly inside of Trillian without having to keep the original client running! Trillian 5.1 also features a modernized activity history viewer, the ability to send pictures on all services, and a bunch of other great features and important bugfixes.
We also have exciting news for those of you in the “buy it and own it” camp – by popular request, we’re launching a brand new way to get Trillian Pro: the lifetime license! For the very first time in our history we are offering a true lifetime license for Trillian, good for all future versions across all product lines. You’ll get all the latest and greatest features and never see any ads. We’re offering discounts to all past customers, including a special prorate for those of you who’ve already purchased a 5.0 subscription. Check out the details and pricing in the Trillian Store!
We hope you enjoy the new release. The final build number is 188.8.131.52, so beta testers may already be running the release build. A direct download link is here, and we’ll be offering 5.1 through auto-update over the coming days as well.
