De final release van Trillian Astra versie 5.4 is uitgebracht. Met dit instant-messagingprogramma kan worden gechat met gebruikers van een groot aantal instant-messaging- en sociale netwerken, waaronder Windows Live, ICQ, Skype (alleen tekst), Twitter en Facebook. Trillian Astra is beschikbaar voor Windows, OS X, iOS, Android en BlackBerry. Ook is er een versie die in een webbrowser draait en dus overal gebruikt kan worden. Hieronder is te vinden welke verbeteringen er in versie 5.4 zijn aangebracht.
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!
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.
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.
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!
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.
