Hahaa,the MSN9.0 will coming soon.
Mess.be found out:
Windows Live Messenger team has sent out a batch of invites for the limited beta of Windows Live Messenger 9.0:
"We've been hard at work building the foundation for Windows Live Messenger 9.0, we'd like to give you a look at what we've built and ask what you think. We're running a small private beta to get early feedback on the new features we've built and get wider test coverage of the build."
"As a beta tester you'll have access to an early 9.0 build, a private newsgroup just for Windows Live Messenger beta testers, and the ability to send bugs directly to the product team. The build you'll be beta testing with is a very early build, so it may be less stable than beta builds you've tried in the past. We're telling you this upfront so you know what you're getting into. If you're not sure about trying a not-quite polished build, maybe this beta isn't for you. If you're ready to dig in and explore this build with us, follow the below instructions to nominate yourself."
Currently only beta-testers of v8.0, Windows Live Butterflies and MVPs are welcome to join the beta. With room for only a small group of participants, the early beta is unlikely to leak since that would probably jam the small-scale testing server, so don't get your hopes up yet.
Windows Live Butterfly RebelSean has spilled the beans and published the complete list of new features present in the latest build:
- Sign-in and messaging in multiple locations up to four at once.
- Signature sounds.
- Per contact sounds.
- SPAM Reporting.
- Animated Display Pictures - supports animated .gif files as display pictures.
- Link in Personal Status Message - URLs in Personal Status Messages are hot and clickable in the Messenger contact list.
- Behind the Scenes Changes - Architectural changes that modified how things work but shouldn't have changed how things look.
- Changes to sign-in, connectivity, presence, sending text IM's, voice & video features.
- Windows Live Contacts Server - wlcomm.exe runs in the background to keep your contacts' information up-to-date and helps Messenger sign you in faster.
