Actual client does load... a few settings will load too. Colbolt skin will load.
What does not
Very, very buggy. The default skin is all black, I had to right click to access the settings to change the skin. A few section (my guess would be about 20%) crash the program, so a few settings cannot be edited.
As of now, I cannot connect to the YIM server. AIM plugin simply freezes the program.
What was not tested
I haven't tested any other of the clients. Also, I wasn't able to try to actually chat with someone, mostly because the only two clients I tried froze the program.
It has improved a lot since I last tested it. Before, the program wouldn't even load. It has come fair amount, but it still has a lot to go.

Using Trillian Astra:
All major functions of Trillian Astra should work fine. However, remember that your using a beta version of Wine and Trillian Astra is not approved for Linux, so don't expect it to run flawless. For example, Trillian Astra has still a few problems with window boxes and alpha-blending transparency. To reduce them I changed the following points:
With the standart settings, every contact sign-on or sign-off is shown by notification windows. However, these windows catch focus from all other programs, so you may want to turn them of by
If you use Trillian Astra on a second screen, you may want to change the location of the Notification windows. You can do so by going to "Notifications" - "Show notification windows at the bottom right corner of moniter ?"
In case of crashes:
Some preferences screens, e.g. "Activity History", "File Transfers" and "Contact List" cause Trillian to crash. Since it won't allow you to start it again, you have to kill Wine with "wineserver -k". After that you can start Trillian again without any problems. However, settings you've changed in the last minutes before the crash may haven't been saved.
