A new build of Windows Live Messenger (WLM) 2009 beta is now available. WLM 14.0.8089.726 seems to be the successor to previous 14.0.8064.0206 build – however there is little to no information available on what’s changed in this version. This primarily looks like a QFE (Quick Fix Engineering) release and Microsoft has been a little discreet about its release. Existing v14.0.8064.0206 users are not being prompted to automatically update to the new build which hasn’t been the case with previous updates. It seems that even Softpedia were asked to remove the download from their servers, at least temporarily.

I initially thought that Microsoft had refreshed all of their their Live Wave 3 apps when I saw the release of Windows Live Movie Maker 14 Final (Build 14.0.8091.0730), alongside WLM update. However this does not seem to be the case. Right now it’s not known for certain if WLM 14.0.8089.726 is even considered as an official update.


As i said earlier there are no direct download links for this version from Microsoft as of yet. However I found the full standalone/offline MSI installer package to be online at BetaNews’s FileForum.
