RE: Messenger Plus! Live is PUBLIC!
I'm a little disappointed. MP!L is missing some of the features I used a lot in the previous version. For example, the hotkey functionality for personal statuses. When there's someone at the door, I don't have time to click through menus, I just want to press ctrl-shift-z (or any other combo) to enter a status. Why was this removed? And for that matter: why were all statuses except for Away and Busy removed from the personal status window?

Also, the fact that none of my old plugins works anymore is pretty bogus. Patchou wrote that scripts are way more powerfull. Well, I don't want them to be powerfull, I want them to work. Powerfull scripts are a security risk in my book.

I've always used this program, and I will always keep using it, but right now, I don't like the way some functionality has just been stripped or at least altered. The program feels like something that rushed into production just because WLM was released earlier than expected or something.

I agree with all of what you said, know it.
I am also thinking on going back to MSN 7.5 and installing MP3 to have in control all the old features that were (temporaly) removed from MP4.

It is obvious that many features had to be removed because of the imminent release of Windows Messenger Live. The bad thing is that we don't see Messenger Plus updates very often so I guess we'll have to attach to this mutilated release, get used to it; or resignate and go backwards to the previous versions. After all, Live Messenger is not also a great release after all, IMO. MSN 7.5 is powerful enough to use it until a newer release of both MSN and MP.

It seems shortcuts for personal status and the emoticons panel (the later, I don't really use) are the 2 more desired features to come back.

Keep on the good work, Patchou. For the sake of the product and for the 100% satisfaction of all people! :)

I've been having problems downloading messenger plus it always seems to hang at around 99% and after a while it comes up with "Internet Explorer cannot download MsgPlusLive-401.exe from ..... The connection with the server was reset".

I have always had this problem and I'm not sure why as I am able to d/l other files from other sites without problems.....can anyone post a zip file of Messenger Plus like they used to do on the mirror sites...cheers
