According to sources close to Neowin, Microsoft's MSN department are preparing a "Public Preview" of MSN Messenger 6.0. This preview could be launched as soon as next week.
As we covered before, the preview will contain new emoticons, a My MSN Picture, Logging, Games and better Webcam support for Windows XP. As for the emoticons side of Messenger we've got hold of a few of the new emoticons that are going to be included in MSN Messenger 6.0. Some of them seem pointless, and some are even animated (I recommend you download them) but I'm sure you'll enjoy them nevertheless. Unfortunately we have no new screenshots of MSN Messenger 6.0 itself.
MSN Messenger 6.0 is still due to launch on July 17th as we exclusively revealed.
