Windows Live Messenger build 689
Got this from Connect earlier today. Wasn't aware that it was a public download too. Cool.
This is the first non beta relase of WLM. and will be the final release before the final release (if you see what i mean )
Check out the lost of changes from previous offical builds (not the leaked one) ont he WLM blog http://spaces.msn.com/messengersays
Maybe final release? Who's knows
are u postively sure its the final release?
It's not the final release. The "Beta" tags are still present.
The features and UI have finally been locked down though. So the final build should look and feel pretty much identical to this one.
On their blog page it says
So its pretty much it appart from bugs
Whoah whoah whoah! Is this like the 2nd time in a row that a build before an official one that has worked properly and hasnt crashed on me! Can they make a third for WLM9!!! Just whoah!
This build of WLM8 is so much damn better than the other ones and has the best looking interface I have seen in any of the Messengers. :smoker:
Sounds are still messed up for me. Sometimes they work... sometimes not. Mostly not. And if you wish to view contacts by email address even if you have that checked in the settings you never see it that way w/o switching to another view and back everytime you login. Looks-wise it's a thing of beauty.... once you remove the ads.
Cheers for the heads up!
