Happy New Year everyone, and today we have some exciting news to go along with the new year. The AIM Lite team has been hard at work on various different projects, and we’re proud to announce a preview version of our favorite — AIM.app.
This is a native Mac AIM client with a large feature set. It’s made for Mac users, by Mac users, and I think you are all going to like it.Â This client is used by the Open AIM development team to test the API.Â AIM Lite is the test client we use on the Windows side of the house.Â Much like MFC Buddy whose source code is shipped inside the Windows SDK and is available via the AIM Gallery, AIM.app’s source code is available in the Mac SDK.Â As always you can download all of our SDKs and read all about our API on http://developer.aim.com.
This is the first public release of the client — but for those Mac developers out there you can see old versions in source at the OpenAIM developer website here. You can also see full release notes here.
AIM.app also supports plugins! Try out KidIM, which allows parents to setup a simple IM environment for kids. Try that our here
As always, we thrive on feedback. Just like in the windows version of AIM Lite, please send us feedback via the AIM.app Help menu.
