    hi lankan man,

    well yes there were beta invites of it.. however when i tried to get a copy of it there were none left.. so i guess that already a lot of other people are trying it out... i did use it at my friends place though coz he was able to get a beta.. while a lot of promised features are still not there, the look and feel has major differences....

    Now that I think of it, betas aren’t really safe, in some cases; there are a lot of glitches that may even affect you previous Messenger...although this might be an urban legend.

    It's out. Read more here. If you have Windows Live Messenger 8 - you're set.

    I downloaded it and it says I need to pay £1.50 for various SMS for the installation code. Is that what you guys did? Is it that much better?
