Omen is a threat meter. Basically, enemies in WoW decide who to attack by deciding who is the most threatening based on the abilities you use. What Omen attempts to do is provide reasonably accurate estimates of your group's relative threat level on individual enemies, so that you can see when you're in danger of pulling aggro (or, if you're next on the snack list if your tank bites it). This info is usually only critical in raids, where only tanks can survive aggro, but it's useful for any multi-player situation.

Omen is an interface for the Threat-2.0 library, and comed bundled with it.

The latest updates are always available at files.wowace.com, or through the WowAceUpdater.

Do other people need Omen installed for it to work?

Short answer: yes

Long answer: kinda

To get fully accurate data, your groupmates must have Threat-2.0 (or an addon that uses it) installed and running. Any addon that uses Threat-2.0 will satisfy this requirement and will provide full and accurate threat data to Omen.

If you or your groupmates have any of these addons installed, or have Threat-2.0 installed as a standalone, then they are capable of sending and receiving threat data.

Please note that unlike Threat-1.0, Threat-2.0 DOES NOT have KLH Threat Meter interoperability.

Do I need to install Threat-2.0 to use Omen?

No. Threat-2.0 comes bundled with Omen as an embedded library. You only need to install Threat-2.0 if you want to provide your group with threat information without a GUI. As a user, you can think of Threat-2.0 as a stripped down tank version of Omen.

How does Omen handle multiple targets with the same name?

Joyous news! Thanks to upgrades Blizzard made in 2.4, Omen can now tell every mob apart. You should have accurate threat information for every mob you engage, regardless of its name.
What else has changed?
[**] Omen has a number of display modes now. You have:
[***] The "Single Target" mode. This is your standard threat meter mode.
[***] The "AOE" mode. This shows your relative threat on all targets you are in combat with. Useful for seeing your relative threat on multiple targets.
[***] The "Overview" mode. Shows people who are currently high on threat on any enemy you're in combat with.
[***] The "Healer/Tank" mode. Shows each of your tanks' targets (pulled from oRA2 or the Blizzard tank settings) and their threat lists.
[**] Single-bar customization is not in yet. This is coming.
[**] Pullout bars are not implemented yet. This is coming.
