Apples and Running Men

Dropped by the Apple campus on Wednesday to talk about some of the new and upcoming AIM features. Apple's iChatAV uses the AIM libraries that my team develops, and they've done great stuff with them - a perfect example of an external developer using our APIs to build a super product and add value to the AIM platform.

The iChat guys were great to talk to and it was a truly memorable visit -
getting to see Steve Jobs, John Ives, people from various Mac OS X teams, and the new MacBook Pros running iChatAV at an amazing resolution and framerate.

We did discuss audio/video interop and there will be a new AIM Triton out soon that will properly interop for audio and video calls with iChatAV in Mac OS X 10.4.4 (iChatAV 3.1.1)

Looking forward to see what the team comes up with for the next major iChatAV release...

when will the JAMZ update be up to download?

So many things keep getting updated on the AOL beta page except for Aim Triton. I don't understand why it's taking almost 2 months to release another beta. And why is it that it seems like AOL is concentrating on everything but Triton. Do they not want to please Aim users? I'm sure there's more Aim users than AOL users.

Just a question... My "Icon Maker" button disappeared from the actions bar... All the other buttons work fine... i've tried turning it on and off, saving the settings and turning it back on... turning everything else of... uninstalling JAMS and reinstalling JAMS... I just can't understand why that is the only button that doesn't work

is there any insight you can give me to fix the problem?

The icon make problem will be fixed in JAMS 2.51, which will be out "as soon as I have a chance to compile and post it"

Rest assured that we are continuing to work on a new Triton release; there are a number of features and fixes that we are trying to get into this release so it is taking some time.
