O.P. Windows Live Messenger 9.0
Just got a hold of the new beta version of 9.0, and was wondering if a Plus! update will be released anytime soon to work with this version? I haven't tried reinstalling Plus! yet, just assumed if it worked it'd've migrated across. I love the new design. If anyone wants screenshots of a certain feature i'll be happy to show them.

WLM is compatible with the latest WLM 9.0 BETA, which you should NOT be using

I keep repeating this in the hopes that some people will understand that they are holding up development of the program and ruining it for everyone else.

It had better be...I can't imagine what I'd do if I got WLM 9 and it told me it wasn't compatible with itself :sad:

Please do elaborate on how the development process is being held up by those select few who are using builds they shouldn't have?

9.0 is not final. Meaning that all the bugs and errors that are coming up should be reported if you are a BETA tester. All those reports would tend to slow them down a bit. Now, that in itself is not a bad thing (ie having a more stable program), but then you also get the useless reports and suggestions ("I think you should add this because x program has it and this add-on can do this and I like this, but get rid of that").

The fact is that it was a closed BETA and only so many copies were made available for a reason. I don't care if we can see any negative effects or not from where we are. It's people like you using the BETA that request all these updates to make stuff compatible with the version you are using, putting more work on people like us the develop software/scripts/skins and offer help with non-public software.

The latest version of Messenger Plus! Live DOES NOT work with the latest Windows Live Messenger 9.0 BETA (build: 14.03.3921.717)


Could we hope for a fast small update?



I' m really liking the new BETA, the new cosmetic feeling / GUI is actually very nice and have this "smooth feeling", didn't really like the move from MSN Messenger 7.0 to Windows Live Messenger 8.0, but this time I find things to move into the right direction!


Besides the cosmetic changes it doesn't seems to be that much new, it's all GUI changes (and some BUG fixed I guess)



All I need now is a Mess-Patch / A-Patch and Messenger Plus! Live working with this new version! :D

First of all, noone should be using the leaked build. It's not useful and of course, like any beta, has many problems and bugs.

Patchou does not and will not release a update to Messenger Plus! Live to support a beta build. :)

Please understand.
