iChat AV 2.1 Adds Videoconferencing with Windows


If you’ve been wanting to have video chats with Windows-using friends, the release of iChat AV 2.1 is what you’ve been waiting for, since it enables videoconferencing between iChat AV and AOL Instant Messenger 5.5 for Windows. Apple list no other changes in the free software, which requires Mac OS X 10.3 or later running a Mac with at least a 600 MHz PowerPC G3 processor. It’s a 4.3 MB download and is available via Software Update or as a separate download.
