Messenger Plus! v3.21.104


Overview :

This software is designed to add functionalities to the Instant
Messaging program from Microsoft called MSN Messenger (also known as
Windows Messenger). This program is absolutely free to use so give it a
try! Ever wondered how to... automatically save your chat logs? -
quickly hide your conversations from your boss, at work or at school ?
- personalize your away status ? - know how many mails are waiting for
you on your POP mail ? - use cool colors and formatting in your
discussions ? - let your contacts know why you're away, and when you'll
be back ? Stop wondering, and start using the greatest addon for your
Messenger! Messenger Plus! 2 does all of the above and much, much more
! Every feature you've dreamed of for your Messenger is now a couple of
clicks away... so what are you waiting for ? it's free!

What's New:

* The Floating Contacts feature seems to be pretty popular so it
got improved
o You can now drag&drop all sorts of things on the floating
windows. Text and internet links are sent in messages, files (only one
at a time) trigger a file transfer with your contact. Drag&drop even
works when your contacts are offline! You can also press the Ctrl key
during the operation so that the message/file doesn't get sent
automatically.
o The windows disappear properly every time you sign-out.
o The windows are not listed in the Windows Task Manager
anymore.
o The Always On Top setting is never deactivated
automatically for strange reasons.
o No more display problems with tooltips, small improvements
in docking.
o There is now a new Display Setting option that lets you
lock the size and position of the window (so that you don't move it be
accident).
o Many options can now be configured for each individual
window using registry settings (or Plus! Tweak), including background
and text color, transparency level, display by email and hide when
offline.
o Position and settings of each window are properly saved
when the computer is restarted.
o This feature does not reset anymore when you reinstall
Messenger Plus!.
o If a floating window is not visible on screen when it is
first displayed, its position is reset.
* A new preferences panel has been added in the Contact List
section and concerns the Floating Contacts feature:
o Quickly enable or disable floating windows for each of your
contacts.
o Set an option to see your contact's emails instead of your
contact's names.
o Set an option to automatically hide the floating window
when your contacts are offline or when they are not online.
* Many lists displayed in many windows of Messenger Plus! now
support tooltips. If an item text is too long to be displayed, a
tooltip will be shown with the full text of the item (contact name,
event, ...). It's a small modification but I'm sure that all of you
will appreciate this UI improvement.
* Group names are parsed more intelligently in commands such as
/blockgrp.
* The contact helper window closes automatically even when an
unknown email is typed (when recognized).
* Messenger Plus! now detects when you sign-out due to an internet
connection problem.
* Sign-in/sign-out Sounds you assign to groups are not lost anymore
when you reinstall Messenger Plus!.
* The Plus! menu is now accessible from Messenger 7 (beta). For
now, it just displays the compatibility info window, no Plus! feature
will work with Messenger 7 in this version. You can expect a fully
compatible version to be released sometime in November (along with some
surprises :).
* New versions of the sponsor agreement window are being tested
with this version. The final changes will be released in version 3.25,
in about a week from now.
* The Greek translation is back.

Nice program.

Be warned however that it installs spyware/adware by default. Be sure and
choose NO during install, and it installs clean.

I think this is a new category: "Option Ware". :)

IMO it is a nice program if you make sure you don't install the optional
sponsor program. Did this in error once and it installed all sorts of dodgy
shortcuts to commercial sites. But it is optional, and they point that out.

I found the main usefulness was to log conversations, but the latest version
of MSN Messenger does that now, anyway.
