Windows Live Wave 3: Messenger v9

M1 dogfood build review and screenshots

Looks like its open-season on Wave 3 now, with Inky over at Mess.be getting his hands on the Wave 3 Milestone 1 installer for Windows Live Messenger. While Inky may be obsessed with version numbers and about screens, we're more interested in what's going on in terms of new integration across services. Its now been 9 months since the launch of Messenger 8.5, Mail and Photo Gallery as part of Wave 2, but as this is only a first milestone, there'll be other internal updates before a version gets released to the public. That said, there's still some positive signs that the eventual Messenger v9 release is going to be good.

Looking spiffy!! :)

Note that this is NOT the final design.. there's gonna be more changes.. this is just the interface for the internal testers. But so far, lookin good!

It's a lot more lightweight than the previous versions apparently, and you can see in the conversation window as well, that they're trying to take up less screen space too.. which is a great thing.

There's gonna be lots of integration with other Windows Live services as well, which will be awesome to see and have everything all stream-lined.
