O.P. Messenger Plus! is more popular than ever!
Hey everyone,

I am very pleased to say that despite the unfair problems caused by Microsoft Anti-Spyware, Messenger Plus! is more popular than ever! the current statistics clearly show without the shadow of a doubt that Messenger Plus! is still your preferred MSN Messenger add-on with its continuous increase of user base and its 120,000 daily installations, all year long. The sound feature is even becoming too popular on its own: the sound servers had to be updated again recently to accept the millions of requests you send to them every day. By the end of the year, probably more than a billion sounds will have been exchanged on this service, all for free :).

The petition is doing extremely well too, much more than expected actually as more people seem to be interested in defending their add-on against injustices than they are interested to win a PSP or a laptop: surprising but in a very good way :). I found many comments from people who are not supporters of Messenger Plus!, who don't agree with distributing an optional sponsor but who still understand that the petition is about something much more important than that. When browsing the web for opposite comments, the only thing I could find seemed to come from a few people who still don't get that the petition is not about the sponsor but about the misdetection of Messenger Plus! by MSAS and the lies/fear it propagates. I wish some of those people learnt to read before they wasted some precious server space with articles out of subject and often deprived of common sense (articles that also tend to insult my whole user base with their single-minded comments about the Messenger Plus! users community, showing the level of intelligence of their authors).

That being said, I'm glad to announce that a date has been set for the release of Messenger Plus! 3.60: Tuesday 27th of September. In this release, expect bug fixes (with Messenger 7.5 for example), improvements in the Custom Sounds, and a couple of new features like the much awaited Tabbed Chats and the file triggers. Also, because you asked for it and because Messenger Plus! now needs a License Agreement on its own, the setup has been changed to make 200% sure nobody mistakes the Sponsor Agreement for something else (it was already hard before but some people raised some valid points about the agreement window and I don't intend to ignore any of my users).

Congratulations with the ever growing number of users of Messenger Plus! As Jolo said: they can't be wrong! :-D

OMG: do we have to wait until the 27th of September before the new version of Messenger Plus! will arrive? ;-) I'm sure it's worth waiting for, at least I'm looking forward to it! :-)
