Trillian 4.2 for Windows Screenshot Cerulean Studios just released a new beta of their popular instant messaging application Trillian, adding direct replies to emails and tweets via notification popups, instant URL previews and more Wikipedia data for quick lookups. The new beta release alsı has better Windows Live support, a new history feature for browsing through sent and received images, improved skinning and faster setup.

Some of the highlights of version 4.2 include:

* Windows Live. Trillian now supports signing in to WLM from multiple locations! File transfer speed has been improved (more to come), and mobile messaging is now supported.
* Notifications. You can now use notifications to directly retweet, reply to a tweet, and interface with mail right away.
* MetaContact Windows. When talking to a MetaContact, if you receive a message from another of their usernames the window will automatically switch for you.
* Instant Lookup for Hyperlinks. Move your mouse cursor on top of links to preview. Youtube links will show a preview image, too. Great for detecting NSFW links before you open them in browser, and will even resolve shortened links for you!
* Instant Lookup for Popular Terms. We now have more up-to-date Wikipedia data, and more relevant links for each popular term detected.
* Activity History. A polished look and powerful new asset view feature that lets you browse through images sent and received help improve history.
* Quicker MetaContact Creation. You can now drag and drop one contact on top of another to instantly combine them into a MetaContact.
* Other Updates. Support for Twitter’s new retweet mechanism, Twitter Lists, a customizable timeout for notification windows, and the return of custom avatar support.
* Skin Packs. Emoticon and Sound Packs have been moved to a more prominent location in preferences and are easier to change on-the-fly. You can also change contact list icons now with the new Icon Packs.
* Faster Setup For New Users. We’ve tidied up some of the screens in the installation wizard so new customers can get started more quickly than before!

Trillian 4.2 Beta is a free download for Windows. Remember that 4.2 is still beta and will contain bugs and crashes.
