Without looking into things too far, Trillian has fixed the bugs associated with Windows 8 and Skype in Version 5.3 Build 7. I made a post about it here with the quick fix. It’s good to see that Trillian worked through the issue and they are now firing on all platforms. Such a relief!
- The Beta I downloaded that worked
- The very latest Beta released by Trillian

A portion of the release notes regarding Windows 8 and Skype:
Lots of minor visual cleanups went into 5.3 as well, including some new status icons to make it more obvious who is online and who is away. Both message windows and the contact list have received some shiny new visual upgrades and general cleanups, our Skype integration should now work correctly on Windows 8, and Trillian users can now be invited to Google Talk chat rooms. We also spent some time improving the IRC engine in minor ways for 5.3.
