- Ubiquitous contact list (download on login)
- Open protocol
- SecureIM encryption
- Widgets integration
- RSS news bar
- Instant skin change (no restart required)
- Memory usage and leaks reduced
Kevin Kurtz has a screencast where he showcases the new technology:
The application is based on the new Flash Player 9 (not Apollo), being one of the finest examples of RIA i’ve seen lately. Altough i haven’t used Trillian for ages (in Linux i use Gaim, and on XP the standalone IMs) i’m curious to see how this little Flash gem will face the competition, specially the web ones like UserPlane.
