AOL AIM (formerly Triton) 6.0 Beta 2
« on: October 21, 2006, 06:49:18 am »

The following changes were made in AOL AIM (formerly Triton) 6.0 Beta 2:

    * A popularly requested feature, Offline IMs, has been added to the client
    * The IM Catcher has been removed from the client. In its place are an Away Status window and an Unknown Sender's curtain. The former will appear when you are Away and allows you to do things such as disable sounds and pop-up notifications, send IMs while A
    * Message Logging is a new opt-in, PC-based feature. You may now log your conversations with other buddies. The feature can be toggled in General IM Settings. To view your logs you have to choose 'Show Logs' from the Actions menu at the bottom of your Buddy
    * This version of the software also migrates your preferences from AIM 5.9 if you do not already have a version of AIM Triton (prior to AIM 6) installed. If you have AIM Triton 1.x or 2.x installed, none of your AIM 5.9 settings will be migrated
    * There are other new features in this client. The 'eye' button next to your screen name on the Buddy List allows you to toggle between visible and invisible state. The formatting toolbar has also been redesigned again

Apparently reviews are saying that this version is finally decent. I haven't tried it yet because it will not let me install it on Vista, but I think i'll reboot and then jimmyhack the installer to work on vista..

If you've tried this beta, what do you think? Step forward for AIM?

I still use 5.5.3595 with DeadAIM 4.5 after a couple years now.

I hate Triton.
Although, offline IMing sounds really great.
I might try it again.

Are there ads?
