I didn’t think we would see a new Messenger for the Mac. But, Microsoft Messenger for Mac Version 5.0 was announced today and the screen shots look pretty good.
The product page is found at:
The information about the new release is on the page but the download link didn’t work when I tried it.
Heading to the office now.
Will check to see if the download link works after my little drive to town :-)
The 5.0 release includes a bunch of new features including…
- New brushed steel skin (ok not a feature, but nice looking)
- Secure messaging to Microsoft Live Communication Server
- Communicates with AOL, Yahoo, and other IM users (really?)
- Separate online presence status settings for personal and corporate IM networks
- Global Address Look-up
- Redesigned Preferences
- Customizable Display Picture
- Multiple File Transfer
- Animated and Customized Emoticons
Mac MSN IM user? What do you think of the new release?
