The client was built using Flash, so make sure you have the latest version of Flash 9.Â The client also takes advantage of the OpenAIM ActionScript3 library, otherwise known as wimas3.Â As always we appreciate the feedback, so make sure you share it with us.
Last week was a busy week in the AIM world in Dulles, so I am still catching up on all the news we generated. We pushed a new update of AIM Express beta 2, which is an AIM application for people who do not want to download the AIM client or have issues connecting due to network configuration.
Although this application will work with most versions of AdobeÂ® FlashÂ® 9, we highly recommend you upgrade to the most recent version of Flash, as older versions have a serious security flaw. The upgrade is available here.
