Since the release of Windows 10 Build 10041, Trillian, the instant messenger client, suffered some issues regarding window sizing (along with Firefox, Chrome, and a few other applications). Basically, the window would progressively shrink every time you type and the resize controls would hang about five pixels outside the window edge. Some windows would also “be open” but cannot be unminimized, requiring you to close them in the task bar and reopen them by double-clicking on the contact.
Cerulean Studios has just released Trillian 5.6 Beta, along with its associated release notes, which seem to address both of these issues. I say seem because the latter issue (chat windows staying minimized forever) was intermittent, so I can't tell whether my testing is simply luck. That said, I tried to make it happen and I couldn't. Either way, the chat window shrinking bug was vastly more annoying.
Before this update, Trillian was just about useless on Windows 10. The only way to get it somewhat function was to maximize the window to a full monitor. Even snapping it to the left side of the screen would not prevent it from slowly shrinking itself.
I hope this news helps some of our readers as much as it helps me!

Because it drove me nuts for months and its download link was hard to find unless you were browsing their support forums (or at least was when I wrote this). I figured this would be good to know for other Windows 10 testers.
Also, because it's news. It's niche, but it's news.

Does that infinity logo, with the 2 papilla, portend the invention of the infinite improbability drive, because that would be news, especially after Beeblebrox nicks the Heart of Gold, the folks in Zed Zed plural Zed alpha would definitely find that very interesting news. I could think of two simultaneously unfortunate/fortunate hitchhikers that would be very interested, after the fact, that Beeblebrox is successful in nicking the Heart of Gold!
