In the final version do they plan on sticking that WGA check thing so that it won't install on non genuine systems?

Most likely. Since this does carry the Live tag they are trying to keep this as legit as possilbe. So they possibly could have WGA check this also.

Although Friday, June 16th was not confirmed by Microsoft for the official release of Windows Live Messengr 8, it has been mentioned today by WinFuture that the rumored release will be delayed.

From WinFuture (translated), "Last week we were told the new incarnation of Microsoft's Messenger would be released on may 16th. Today we were informed by our source, who is involved in the launch process of the software, that there is going to be a delay of uncertain length. So (as everybody actually expected) there's not going to be a Windows Live Messenger release on 06/16."

A few minutes ago, Microsoft sent a very special e-mail message to all Windows Live Messenger Managed Beta testers, which marks the end of the program. The e-mail message mentions a few of the improved areas in Windows Live Messenger and of course, thanks all beta-testers for their bug reporting and such.

Quote:

Dear Windows Live Messenger Beta Tester,

As we get closer to the final release of Windows Live Messenger 8.0, it is time that the managed beta come to a close. Thank you for all your wonderful contributions to this beta and for putting the voice of the customer into our best version of Messenger yet. Here are few of the many areas where your feedback made a difference:

-Improved sign-in performance. Thanks to your feedback, Windows Live Messenger 8.0 has the fastest sign-in of any version of Messenger.
-New UI and color changing. After many tries, your feedback helped us "get it right."
-Great new features such as Sharing Folders, Offline IM and Live Contacts. You found many great bugs that improved the quality of each of these.
-Overall quality. Your relentless testing and reporting of memory leaks, crashes and UI glitches greatly improved this version of Messenger.

Microsoft today announced two webcams, optimized for Windows Live Messenger and Spaces: the LifeCam VX-6000 and LifeCam VX-3000. Their key features are:

- Windows Live Call Button. Located on the top of each LifeCam, the Windows Live Call Button makes placing a video call a breeze by eliminating the usual multiple steps. Just one touch brings up the Buddy Picker, a tool that shows users only current online buddies. They simply select their contact's name and they are on their way to making a video call.

- LifeCam Dashboard. Built right into the Windows Live Messenger window for easy access during video calling, the LifeCam Dashboard provides simple access to the controls people need most, including pan, tilt and zoom. Now users' attention stays where it should be - on their video conversation.

- One-touch blogging. Windows Live Spaces is one of the fastest-growing blog communities in the world, with more than 50 million individual Spaces. Now, users can post High Definition LifeCam pictures directly to their Windows Live Space blog with one click from within the LifeCam window.

The new Microsoft LifeCams introduced today will be widely available in August 2006 for the following estimated retail prices: $99.95 US for the VX-6000 and $49.95 US for the VX-3000.

Anyone that uses MSN Messenger should be extra cautious because there is a brand new worm out that is targeting MSN users. Make sure you head on over to WebUser UK and get all the information.

BlackAngel.B spreads via Microsoft IM, sending the following messages to all Messenger contacts: 'jaja look a that fantasma.zip' or 'mira este video fantasma.zip jaja'. According to antivirus company Panda Software, the worm attempts to disable the security programs installed onto the computer, such as antivirus and firewalls.

Microsoft Corp. today released Windows Live Messenger, available at http://get.live.com/messenger/overview, one of the first of more than 20 new Windows Live services to launch globally over the course of the year.

“Windows Live is all about giving consumers the tools and services they need to be in control as they stay connected to the people they care about, on top of the information that is important to them, and better protected across all their online activities,” said Martin Taylor,corporate vice president of Windows Live and MSN at Microsoft.


Features of Windows Live Messenger include the following:

• Video Call - The free, synchronized audio and video service in Windows Live Messenger

• Windows Live Call with Verizon Web Calling service.

• Cordless phones designed exclusively for Windows Live Messenger - Uniden America Corp. and Philips recently introduced phones that make the Windows Live Call feature for Windows Live Messenger available in North America and Europe.

• Microsoft LifeCams optimized for Windows Live Messenger - Microsoft Hardware and the Windows Live services group announced last week a line of webcams that are designed for use with Windows Live Messenger.
• Sharing Folders - Now sharing is as easy as dragging and dropping a file. Customers can more easily share their files and personal photos with family, friends and colleagues on their Windows Live Messenger Contact List.

• Windows Live Contacts - Contact information is always current with Windows Live Contacts in Windows Live Messenger.

• Integration with Windows Live services - Windows Live Messenger integrates with other Windows Live services such as Windows Live Search, Windows Live Local, Windows Live Mail and MSN Spaces.

Download WLM

It is final. It is not in Beta anymore. The new build # is 8.0.0.767
