By Ed Silverstein December 17, 2010

Trillian 1.1 is now ready for release for BlackBerry phones after beta testing.

The new version of Trillian includes message inbox integration and landscape support. Along with these two features, the version includes:

  • Option to start Trillian on device boot.
  • Faster opening of message windows.
  • ‘Connect all’ and ‘disconnect all’ options.
  • BiDi language support.
  • New emoticon button and browser.
  • Group contact list by service.
  • Bug fixes and other minor improvements.

“The beta version was pretty good and the usability enhancements in the v1.1 update are nice, including loading when your device boots and message app integration,” reported BerryReview.com. The app was in beta testing since October.

Users can download the new 1.1 version of Trillian in App World or directly from BlackBerry at http://trillian.im.

In other recent BlackBerry news, TechZone360 reported that BlackBerry 6, an operating system for BlackBerry smartphones, is now FIPS 140-2 certified. FIPS is a security standard from the U.S. government that certifies cryptographic modules, TechZone360 reports.

In other company news, Trillian for Android is now available on the Android Market. It costs $4.99.

The company also reports that Version 1.5 of Trillian for iPhone was recently approved after testing. It should be available in the App Store soon. The company says that version 1.5 has improved “connection stability.” In addition, the company has fixed crashes, as well as improved speed.

“We’ve fixed a large number of bugs and improved many different internal areas of code,” Trillian said in a blog post. “Loading and resuming Trillian has also been dramatically sped up, especially for those of you with large contact lists.” In addition, the new version features a new emoticon browser. It has the familiar Trillian emoticons.

“We’ve fixed the annoying URL rendering issues,” the blog adds, “and we’ve added an in-app browser to view links easily from within Trillian.”
