  • I've tried this plugin in Trillian pro 5.4 build 13, and there seem to be some issues, that really need to be addressed (either by the current maintainer or by a new dev) for the plugin to be useful: 1. As mentioned by others: after sending a message, the OTR raw data is pasted into the input box. 2. When sending an OTR message, the recipient may receive the messages with HTML formatting tags in plaintext. Since there is no alternative plugin for Trillian, is the future going to be OTR-less?

  • I wasn't even able to generate a key -- nothing happened when I clicked on the button.

  • i got the same issue that the encrypted msg filled in the input box after a msg sent. :( any updates?

  • EDIT: I had the same problem an did the following to get it to work with the current version of trillian: - created fingerprints for all possible accounts - verified all remote fingerprints from active sessions - enabled log file saving to hard drive (encrypted partition) - disabled spell checking in chat window That did the job, no encrypted content anymore in the message compose box! ---- I am having the same issue as descibed before. Everything works well but with the new Trillian Update, cryptographic text appear in the typing field after sending a message. Hope the dev can fix this! However, great work - after they cancelled SecureIM (which was a little handier I think), OTR is the only possibility left to have encrypted messaging with Trillian.

  • I"m having the same issue as Bindy MFBains in the review from June. After I type something, the encrypted block appears in my "send" window. Is this a known bug you can reproduce?
