Windows Live Messenger build 689
was just publicly released but contrary to the original plan, it still bears the Beta-tag (for the last time?).

So far I spotted nothing new compared to the previously leaked internal Beta so I suggest you check those posts for details.

I'm also not entirely sure they updated all languages to 8.0.0689.00_Branches but here's a list of direct links for all known translations (let me know which ones still link to the 0566 build):

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
This version is like a final draft – a last chance to make any crucial changes/bug fixes. You won’t see many changes between this version and the final release. Feel free to keep making feature requests, though - we’ll add them to the list for the next versions.

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.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
