People who tested 8.0 were given priority to apply and beta test yahoo interop and now 8.1 beta.

And people who did 7 could test 8 automatically.

So if lots of people from Spain chose to do 7, then 8, then interop, and now want to do 8.1, they will get priority. They want a mix from ALL Instant messaging markets to get a balance msn_happy.gif

I'm not saying you won't get accepted, but mentioned above may be ONE reason why you are not accepted.

Yes, you have got a point. Priority is always given to those who previously tested or got Invitation's directly from Microsoft (in this case Windows Live Butterflies, or WLM/Y!M interop testers). The rest of the slots are then filled by other applicants.

Also, one needs to remember, the managed Beta is only available in selected countries, so some people who applied will not be accpeted because of region. But, i know for sure the Managed Beta is available in Spain.

or you have an invite id msn_grin.gif. I think that most people who signed up and tested the interop beta received an email with an invite id. So now i have this :

Pending  Windows Live Messenger 8.1 Beta    Windows Live Messenger 8.1 Beta    8/25/2006  Decline Participation
Active Windows Live Messenger 8.1 Beta  Windows Live Messenger 8.1 Beta  9/2/2006 Decline Participation

Same here. I signed up first and it still says pending, then got a nomination code in an email and used that and it's active.

Hi Galactic.

I'm not fully sure if the Windows Live Messenger 8.1 Managed Beta is available in Finland. I could try and find out for you.

What are the new features?

* Improved Vista Compatibility
* New Personal Expressions UI (Winks and Emoticon menus, etc)
* New Personal Status Message options
* A new branding platform
* Improved re-authentication at sign in
* Roaming display pictures
* New platform architecture in key areas such as automatic updates and object store (where your personalized data is kept on your computer)


*downloading now*

I really want to know what the hell is: Roaming display pictures

*edit i know now: Roaming Display pictures - everytime you log-in from different computer, you display picture will be the same as you had. Excellent feature from microsoft msn_up.gif

*installed*

Ahh very nice.

I just received my email too, so I am about to install now msn_happy.gif

I'll see how it comes.

Anyone know when a final release will be available, and more importantly, a Mess Patch msn_wink.gif?

EDIT: Oh dear a Leak. Are you running a leak then Camsta? Well, perhaps after this leak, they will protect the next build, we will see!

Even though I'm tempted to run the Leaked versions (I've so far seen two; one on "removed" and one on "removed") I think I'll still wait for a) Public Beta or b) My request-to-join-the-beta to be accepted msn_happy.gif

Even though they weren't links please don't tell people where they are - Nat

Some peoples status in the Beta may remain pending. Remember, that by signing up and completing the survey, it DOESN'T guarantee you'll be accepted into the Beta. That step is just to show you're interest

Chances that people will still be accepted are very slim, seeing as the Beta has already begun (but i may be wrong here)

Has anyone else noticed *some* of there custom content (eg. emoticons) are not present in this beta version?..

Also changing your display picture is not as easy as it once was.. Not so sure about the clicking and viewing of your own contact card..

(Please note: I'm not complaining.. Meerly making observations of what i see in the new beta.. thanks for your time lol)

(Update: Also please let it be known for people thinking of updating, that plus is not compatible with this version.. (at this stage))
