Messenger Plus! Live 4.00 will soon be released. Some last compatibility
fixes have been made into Messenger Plus! 3 to make sure the upgrade goes
smoothly for everybody. Note that both software will be capable of running
together but won't be entirely compatible, that's why Messenger Plus! Live
automatically disables Messenger Plus! 3 upon install. You can then, if you
wish, reinstall Messenger Plus! 3.63 (and nothing below it) if you still
want to use Messenger Plus! in Windows Messenger 4 or 5.
A new major version of sponsor will be distributed with Messenger Plus!
Live and I thought it would be appropriate to include it along with this
update. The new sponsor package is distributed by Circle Development Ltd and
I'm sure everybody will be happy to know that they've removed what users
didn't like the most: the home page change and the search bar. Also, in case
you would wonder, nothing has been added either compared to previous
The sponsor agreement in the setup has been enlarged so that everybody can
read the part about advertisement without scrolling. The screenshot of the
search bar has been removed as it's not installed anymore (and it wasn't
really needed anymore anyway as there's no way you can mistake the sponsor's
agreement for anything else now).
When the sponsor is installed, Messenger Plus! is listed as
"Messenger Plus! 3 & Sponsor" in Add/Remove Programs so that
people can locate it easily if they don't remember installing the ads with
Messenger Plus! after some time.
Developer's note: due to the way version 3.62 was compiled, a network path
was embedded in the binaries (pointing to the pdb file). This was causing
extra delays to developers trying to debug something on their computer with
Messenger Plus! installed as their debugger was trying to locate my computer
name on their network. This is now fixed.
