Will Trillain Astra be free when released?

Asked by Traveosa (60points) August 5th, 2008

I have been waiting for a long time for Trillian Astra. I was just wondering if it was going to be free or not. Because Trillian 3 has a basic or pro offer. Will Astra be like this?

Cerulean Studios (publisher) has not yet announced their plans for a Pro/Basic system similar to Trillian 3.

The blog that they maintain doesn’t indicate that there is any separation of features akin to a Pro/Basic tier structure. They have however indicated that the installer for Trillian 3 Basic now has “opt outs” for other services (something from Yahoo, and others) that pay part of their bills. This may also pay the bills for a single build (feature complete) of Astra.

Regardless of any for-fee software, I would be surprised if there was no “Basic” SKU similar to Trillian 3, however.
