Oh no, a few bug fixes released when there are tons of known bugs in this dated program. By the time Astra is released, it too will be vulnerable to new exploits because the team works at the development speed of a snail. I think it is a shame as well since I actually like Trillian despite this, but its bad for biz.

My problem is that it takes about 30 seconds to load while GAIM or Miranda takes about 5 seconds. I like trillian but it is so slow that I have to switch to Miranda (Windows) and Gaim (Ubuntu).
