Trillian & Miranda – a story of two ICQ Messangers

I’ve been using Miranda for quite some time now, and try always to stick with the lastest releases.

The last release is Miranda IM v0.8.0 Build #3. Unfortunatly there seem to bee some issues concerning the ICQ protocol:

  • communication with Trillian does not work anymore
  • contacts seem to be offline, even though they are online

The first issue can be solved using a previous version if the icq.dll. Version seems to be fine. It seems that Trillian can not handle the new message format, which was introduced to Miranda to improve the compatibility with ICQ 6.

The other issue is more severe. AOL seems to have changed something regarding communication with unauthorized contacts … there has been already some discussion at the Miranda Forum.
