In order to celebrate the continuing growing popularity of Messenger Plus!, a special set of goodies has been put online, representing the diversity of the people who use MSN Messenger with Messenger Plus! on a day to day basis. These goodies include new shirt designs and a new set of wallpapers for your Windows desktop.
The new wallpaper
is a mosaic of many of the postcards I've received over the years from fans who wanted to show extra support for their favorite Messenger add-on. Even if your resolution does not permit it, I encourage you to download the 1600*1200 version to get a clearer view of each of the cards
If you like the concept of mosaics but prefer keeping a clean background, checkout the new shirts! They are marked "special edition" in the Messenger Plus! Store
and their price has been cut down for the occasion. The back of those shirts contains another mosaic of postcards and for having just received my proof test shirt, I can guarantee that they look real cool.
That's it for now. If you want more stuff more related to Messenger, I suggest you go check out the mpsounds.net web site. The content of this site is growing a lot these days as more and more people use the Custom Sounds feature of Plus!. Speaking of that, I had to upgrade the servers again this weekend, there just seems to be no end to the popularity of this thing.
As for when the next version of Messenger Plus! will be available, well, let's just say it's a secret for now but I promise you will not be disappointed. I will not release any version to support private beta versions of the new Windows Live Messenger (formerly known as MSN Messenger 8) but I guarantee that you will like what you'll see next year when it goes public. I'll keep you posted
