Ik lees bij Betanews dat ICQ 2000 officieel de beta status heeft bereikt (de vorige releases waren alpha's). Beta v4.29 build #3140 mag je via deze link van het Betanews FileForum wegtanken (thanks Moll Man voor de tip):
ICQ 2000a has officially reached beta status after a long period of alpha testing. Today's beta launch was initially scheduled for last week, however a couple last minute bugs delayed the release. ICQ 2000a features a new contact list design, redesigned option menus, an ICQ quick launch bar, redesigned preferences, help cards, an answering service, and countless other additions. An advanced address book now allows you to easily search through your contacts. Version 2000a is definitely worth checking out if you want to take advantage of the new features, however some may find 2000a's interface cluttered.
