Finally, it has actually arrived in March!

Download

One thing I've noticed is that display pictures don't show up in conversation windows and video chat is rather picky.

I have a problem that everytime I put my MacMini to sleep, Messenger falls over and won't login when I wake the machine.
I have to kill Messenger manually from the command line before I can use it again or shut the Mini down.

Does anyone know if this problem exists in this latest version?

Mine's also crashing after a few minutes of running. Get the lovely beach ball if I put my mouse over the contact window or any chat window. Great.

@caris_2007 - It should be released with Mac Office 2011 due Q3 this year

@Tilluss - There is a plugin you can get that will allow you to do AV chat, I do not know how good it is

Does anyone know if they are they going to keep updating this does anyone know throughout the beta or is this the only version and we will have to wait for the final version for all the fixes?
