You can find version 8 final online (comes with Office 2011). Interface is different and more like the Windows version. Audio and Video is enabled now but still no tabbed chatting.
Office 2011 officially arriving in October.

When do version 8.0 goes finally out of the beta? It's passive for a long time at microsoft... this app lol

Version 7.0.2 will not work properly if you install version 4 Safari Beta.

Messenger will lose focus after sending a message. In other words, once you click send or press return to send your message, you will have to re-click the message box to continue typing your next message.

Reinstalling the previous version of Safari will see off the problem. WebKit issue apparently.

adium ftw!

why bother? honestly. nothing has changed. it still has no audio visual support. at least aMSN has that. i don't use AV much but when i do i turn to skype because i don't like aMSN. i'm sticking with adium because it's compatible with a multitude of IM services.

I use this, but there is a stupid bug with all version including 7.0.1. It just doesn't work behind proxies. The same as skype. No matter I set manually or use automatic script URL in systems prefs.

Exactly, nothing new... Still the total lack of functionality.
So, basicly back to Adium, if it would only have those private messages.

"7.0" out today : it's a big joke. New icon, almost nothing else.

MS Messenger for Mac doesn't support many important features found in the Windows version. Adium doesn't have those featres either, but at least it's compatible with more chat services and offers themes. :)

I agree with iiro. Also, I've been having some problems seeing my contacts' display pictures in Adium, something that has never happened with Messenger.
