When starting Trillian I continue to get an error message regarding Yahoo being old version that is no longer supported. The specific error that comes from Yahoo Admin is listed below.
Trillian Yahoo Admin Error:
You are using an older version of Yahoo! Messenger that is no longer supported. Please upgrade by downloading the newest version by going to: http://messenger.yahoo.com/download.php.
The issue relates to the Yahoo Messenger plugin that is installed for Trillian. Currently the newest version of Trillian, which is Trillian 18.104.22.168, does not include the fix for the Yahoo Messenger plugin error. You can however download Trillian 22.214.171.124 beta from Trillian. The Yahoo plugin patch can be downloaded from a forum post on the Cerulean Studios forums located here. If you have trouble downloading the patch directly from that link please visit the forum post located here. To install the Yahoo Messenger plugin beta patch follow the directions below.
