Trillian Astra beta goes public, multi-protocol chat for everyone

Trillian Astra beta
Trillian has launched a public beta of Trillian Astra, the company's updated chat client for AOL, Yahoo!, Windows Live, Google, and other instant messaging service. Trillian Astra also lets you update your status on Facebok and Twitter, something earlier versions of the IM client couldn't do.

The application has been in private testing for what seems like forever, but a few months ago the company started giving out beta invitations like there was no tomorrow. So removing the "private" label was probably just a formality.

Trillian Astra is available for Windows 200, XP, Vista, or 7. The company is working on Mac, iPhone, and web clients, but those aren't available to the public yet. You can sign up to be notified when those versions are available at the download page. Or you could just use Pidgin or Adium.
