Default Windows Live Messenger 8.1 Released!

Earlier today, all participants in the Windows Live Messenger 8.1 managed beta received an email stating that the beta program had now closed. We were not expecting it to be released so soon after, however.

But it seems thee WLM Developer team is in gear, because Windows Live Messenger 8.1 has just been released!

The build released is marked as 8.1.0178. An official features list is not yet available however some of the known new features include:

- New, more detailed, Contact Cards
- Quick Display Picture change
- Display Pictures and Display name are now kept server-side
- Minor changes to the interface

BETA or normal release?

Just installed it, and it seems to run much faster than the 8.0 version I was using previously. Good find!
