Patchou has recently released a minor update to Messenger Plus! Live which is fully compatible with the latest Windows Live Messenger version (14.0.8089.726) and has been stripped from all references to the 2009 Plus! contest (congratulations to all winning clickers!). Under a new preference setting in the "Customize!" panel you can opt-out of any future Plus! contests and promotions.
The network hooking mechanism has been improved:
"For some people, this will improve how Messenger Plus! catches various network events (used for notifications, the event viewer, ...). For other people, this will solve a rare problem where Messenger crashes upon sign-in (Messenger Plus! will try to detect the faulty behaviour caused by buggy network software and will switch to an alternate hooking method automatically when Messenger is restarted)."The Messenger Plus! setup now resets Messenger's compatibility settings set in Windows Vista and above to increase speed. The plugin is now also compatible with BitDefender Total Security 2010.
"Note that as a result, keyboard shortcuts in Messenger Plus! windows (like pressing Tab to move to the next control) may stop working and the Messenger systray icon may not be replaced by Messenger Lock."Finally, some fixes to the "Enhance copy/paste" feature in chat windows and the sign-in notifications in Windows XP with Messenger 8.5 that were broken since September due to a protocol change.
