And weird that they're using Microsoft's Professional/Watercolors theme for XP (actual size; I started using it after shippo told me about it) on all the screen shots. Won't people think it's just a cool new Trillian design? Did they get permission from Microsoft? Here they call it the "Whistler" skin, but your typical IM user isn't going to know that's XP prerelease. I thought at first that might mean they started using native widgets, but then I noticed the close button in this shot has a custom minimization icon.
It looks from the plugin docs like you could write a new medium plugin, as long as you didn't mind it being totally disintegrated with the rest of Trillian (for example, not having its contacts saved by Trillian or returned in a
contactlistEnumerate). Other than that, "this is coming." The only other plugin idea I have right now would be a file-sharing plugin, which would take a while to write. And I have other projects already.
Some contact list features. Pro also does ICQ's floating contact list item thing, which I never liked anyway. It also conceives of "Metacontacts"--you know, the people you have two or three of in your contact list because they're on multiple services too.
They say free Trillian has a "simple and sleek interface," which apparently doesn't include the menus. The menus are the one thing for which I want screenshots, because they're so hideously convoluted in free Trillian. Sane menus would be worth $25.
