Yahoo! Inc. has released a new version of its
Mac instant messaging client.
Changes in Yahoo! Messenger 2.0 include additional features like:
Typing notification, which tells you when your friends are typing a message to you by showing you a notification in the status bar at the bottom of your instant message window.
New emoticons, to help you dress up your chat text with facial expressions.
Auto-idle status, which shows when you’re away from your Mac.
Improved firewall support, to enable Messenger to send and receive messages from behind corporate firewalls.
The new version is available for the first time for Mac OS X. It also runs on Mac OS 8.1 or higher, with CarbonLib installed.
