The scripting contest announced earlier this month has finally arrived and along
with it, the release of Messenger Plus! Live 4.11! this update is for bug fixes
only and solves things such as compatibility with add-ons like SimpLite-MSN and
software such as Windows Live Mail. Some more fixes were made to the scripting
API and everything is now ready for the contest!
So, what’s this new contest all about? it’s a contest organised to celebrate
the first million of scripts downloaded from the official database on this site.
It is opened to script developers only but if you’re a simple user, you’ll
soon be able to enjoy a lot of great scripts published as a result of the
contest participations. If you’re a developer, now is your chance to either
create your very first Messenger add-on with the scripting API or to perfect the
one you’ve been working on these past few months! Here is how things will
work: the contest is opened to anybody in the world from November 28th to
December 19th 2006 (3 weeks). To participate, the only thing you need to do is
submit a script that works properly with Messenger Plus! Live 4.11. The script
must be free of any obvious problem and if your script is already in the
database, an update must be submitted to be eligible for the contest.
Messenger Plus! now always works properly when a SOCKS server is
configured in the Messenger options (can happen when installing other
add-ons such as SimpLite-MSN). This fixes problems with contact events not
Every Messenger process launched in the system is now terminated if
necessary during setup to prevent "file locked" problems.
Fixed: Messenger crashes if a script or a sound pack is attempted to be
imported while Messenger Plus! has not been loaded properly (when the
"Software Not Loaded" menu is present).
Fixed: some preferences may not be loaded and scripts may not be started
when Messenger is launched automatically by another product such as Windows
Fixed: messages sent with multiple lines are not logged properly in
Messenger 8.1 in XHTML logs (line breaks were not written properly).
Fixed: scripts that throw an exception during a DLL function call may
crash Messenger if the scripting debug window is not displayed. This caused
some scripts that seemed to work fine in version 4.00 to crash with version
4.01 and 4.10.
Fixed: the AlwaysReloadInterfaces registry setting does not function
Scripts: parameters ranging from 0x80000000 to 0xFFFFFFFF can now be
passed to Interop.Call without the need for an extra workaround.
Scripts: "null" values can now be passed to Interop.Call and are
interpreted as "0" (integer).
Scripts MsgPlus.Version returns a better floating point value (see update
