Cerulean Studios on Friday disclosed that it was in the process of developing a version of its client for the Mac, encroaching on territory long occupied by competitor Adium. Trillian did for Windows what Adium does for Mac – allow the user to load one program for multiple instant messaging clients. Cerulean has released an alpha build of the client, which it says is roughly the same as a flash-based version of the client, which basically allows for simple IM.
With the new v4.x iterations of Trillian, the codebase was separated from the user interface, which was made platform-agnostic. Thus, the Mac OS X version will have all the features of the Windows version, however, it will be affected by the limitations of the UI. Cerulean said that as the UI is developed, these features will appear in the Mac client.
