This release features a larger number of performance improvements and some great new features. Highlights include: rebuilt the chat window from scratch to improve performance, animated PNG support, buzz support, keyboard shortcut improvements, ‘always on top’ support and a large number of general user interface improvements and fixes. Added ability to view all chat history as a summary view. Status icons are now overlaid as shapes on top of user avatars, freeing up space elsewhere in the interface and improving colorblind accessibility. User titles, departments, phone numbers and phone extensions will now be shown right inside the chat window when available. Security improvements include TLS 1.3 support and a handful of new policies for business customers to help lock down their Trillian deployments.

One of the few great pro Mac apps left
There has been a trend of terrible UI designs by recent app developers (think Skype, Slack, DropShare 5, etc.) I'm very happy that Trillian keeps the usable UI and pro feel without slashing features. I just switched from Adium since Adium has been long neglected. Trillian is very stable for me, and I haven't had a crash yet. I just wish it supported OTR encyption.
Used to be better
I've used Trillain since it was in beta. At first it connected with many chat services and agressively stayed on top of those (AIM, Yahoo Messenger) that changed their APIs, by updates that got back in. But that has tailed off in recent years, as those services that haven't closed (like AIM or Yahoo), are locked out of Trillian (like LinkedIn, Google Talk/Hangouts, Skype). In addition, the Mac client never really has mateched the functionaliity the Windows client. The Mac client does not connect with IRC or with Pop/IMAP email, as does the Windows client. It will do Facebook, Twitter, the almost defunct Goggle Talk, any XMPP service and something called Olark, as well as the Trillian Astra network. If you use one or more of those, Trilllian remains a great choice with a nice user interface. But it used to be better.
I’ve checked Activity Monitor and rebooted and closed every other app I have running - something has gone wrong with Trillian and it either hangs or lags (1-2 minutes) with typing and responses. We have used Trillian (Mac, Windows & iOS) for YEARS and this is by far the worst I’ve seen the app work. Correction - it doestn’t really work.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
