Today marks the 10 year anniversary of Trillian’s first release. 10 years ago, at 5 in the morning, Kevin and Scott were putting the finishing touches on the very first version of Trillian, 0.50. Our earliest effort was nothing more than a simple chat client built for IRC only, but we quickly realized that IRC wouldn’t be enough. As a result, basic IM support was added into the next release and we haven’t stopped moving since! In the last ten years, we’ve launched over 8 major releases of Trillian for Windows and ported Trillian to a host of other platforms, including Mac, iPhone, BlackBerry, and the web!
If you’ve been using Trillian for many years, now is a great time to support our small and independent company by purchasing Trillian Pro, currently on sale for only $15. If you’re already a Pro customer, feel free to send us some beer and pizza money in the form of a gift card and send it to a friend. In honor of our 10th birthday, we’re also unveiling our latest creation: Trillian 5 for Windows! A sneak peek website is online right now as we put the finishing touches on the first beta build, which will be available to all customers in the coming weeks.
Here’s to ten more years of organizing your online social world!
