What i've read is that WLM 9 will only be made available in late 2008 and that is only in beta form.

Several things to note, without revealing too much:

1. There is an internal MS WLM9 dogfood. Currently no-one outside Microsoft has access to any part of WLM9.

2. The Connect page for WLM8.1 is currently blank and makes no reference to WLM9.

3. The WLM9 team will try to ship a version that includes an API that allows cross-protocol communication, e.g. with AIM/Google Talk and ICQ. Currently, the Google Talk part is working.

4. The late 08/early 09 date is the (correct) projected shipping target.

http://www.clubic.co...-messenger.html (French site news of today)
It says Beta1 of WLM9 is due for March 2008 and the final in late 2008.
WLM9 will have an API for third-party addons.

They says also that MS is working on a way to make WLM users to be able to talk to AIM/Gtalk or ICQ.
There a new Version for Mac Coming as well of the X360 upgrade.

Putting WLM9 off for now, can you get WLM8.5 without having to get the rest of the apps in the Live set? Or will you have to d/l them all and then just pick to install WLM and not the rest.

The Live installer lets you pick what you want to download and install, it does not require you to download each application if you aren't going to install it.

3 is not quite true. The WLM team is playing around with cross-protocol communication, it has absolutely nothing to do with the API. Also they may not even put cross-protocol communication in WLM9/10, and it could be an internal-only thing just to see if it can be done.
