Initial impressions are that it isn't bad at all.
Encountered no problems during installation, program running seems stable. No major improvements from what I can see though, only a few changes to icons for Yahoo Mail and such, and slight graphical changes to the logging in screen. I'll edit the post if I come across anything else worth mentioning though. Might even get around to posting some screenshots for you all later…
Ah, shouldn't forget to mention that it is a Beta.May 17, 2005 at 10:17 pm #102454imported_Ven0mMember
does anybody know what to reshack to get rid of the yahoo search stuff in IM and chat windows (at the top right) and some of the call features?May 17, 2005 at 10:43 pm #102400
Looks good from what I see so far. In addition to what Martin said, they changed the menus around and added some new options and a few new content tabs. Also integrated some calling features and Yahoo! 360.
And the skins for 6 still work(which makes me very happy:p), only thing is they added a few new images.May 17, 2005 at 10:44 pm #102421

Prepare for the worst, with new options and services, means a plethora of new exploits/boot codes.
Especially if they did indeed bring back the send contact information, for that was one of the first DOS packets used…
This should get either very interesting or very messy.May 17, 2005 at 11:58 pm #102447BShink21Member

You can get it at the Y!Tunnel Pro website, for now.
In case the above download is unavailable I have made the installations available locally here. If this causes too much server load I will remove the files.May 18, 2005 at 12:45 am #102422
