Yahoo! Messenger protocol update

Yahoo! is busy updating the protocol again, in efforts to try and stop people using 3rd party clients such as Trillian. It seems the efforts are wasted as patches are available shortly after.

There are reasons for the blocking, but it just seems like another one of those thing which will just go on & on. I suppose it is down to revenue from advertising as far as Yahoo are concerned, as well as allowing 3rd parties access to the network - which is fair enough.

Anyway, for the people that use Trillian, patches are available so it is all woking again now.
