We previously reported about the Messenger Plus! Live 4.79.353 which offered beta support for the new Windows Live Messenger 2009 Final (build v14.0.8050.1202). A final Messenger Plus! Live build (4.80.356 released on 31/1/2009) has now been released which offers full support for WLM 9. Apart from the compatibility update, there are tons of new features, enhancements and bugfixes featured in this new MsgPlus (or MP!L) build.

There is a notice posted on MP!L homepage regarding the new build:

Of course, the main attraction of version 4.80 is full compatibility with the latest version of Messenger, Windows Live Messenger 2009, and when we say “full compatibility”, we mean just that. You won’t find any ”light” trimmed-down version of your add-on here.

Despite the lack of visual changes in the software, the change log shows that many things were done under the hood. As often, scripts and skins in particular got their good share of improvements.

The changelog of course is far too long to post here – it’d screw up the article. If you want you can refer to the full release notes posted on this page.

Note: While Messenger Plus! Live is freeware but you should be aware that the program comes bundled with optional adware. There is no reason to worry as you get the option to deselect the adware components during program installation. In case you forgot to deselect and adware got installed, follow instructions on this thread to remove them manually.
