Patchou heeft versie 3.25.106 van Messenger Plus! uitgebracht. Deze populaire add-on voor MSN Messenger biedt vele mogelijkheden, zoals de mogelijkheid om contacten te hernoemen, tekst op te maken en een bericht achter te laten als je niet aanwezig bent. De belangrijkste vernieuwing in deze versie is de verbeterde installer, waar duidelijker wordt aangegeven wat het 'sponsor program' is. Helaas is deze release nog niet compatible met MSN Messenger 7, dit komt in de eerstvolgende versie. Het volledige changelog is hieronder te vinden:
- The sponsor agreement has been modified extensively.
- I've taken into account all the complains and suggestions I got this year and I hope this new version will please everyone. Some people tend to forget that Messenger Plus! is a full featured Messenger Plus! plugin, not just a way for me to earn my life. I'm still using all the time I've got to improve this software and I hope the next reviews I'll read about Messenger Plus! will focus more about its features than its sponsor.
- The sponsor's trial-period delay that was introduced recently got removed to avoid misunderstandings.
- The second screen of the setup now displays a text explaining what the sponsor is and how to uninstall it. A small delay prevents the Next button from being pressed repetitively to give a extra chance to the user to read the explanation message.
- The agreement window has been completely redesigned: the name of the sponsor, C2Media, is now written in bold, the license agreement is not "hidden" by the explanation message anymore, the "I refuse" option is clearer and, more than everything, a big screenshot of the sponsor's toolbar is displayed on top of the agreement. I honestly don't see how anyone could miss the point of this window now .
- Security being a major concern nowadays, I invested in a digital signature. From now on, every public release of Messenger Plus! will be signed by Verisign as coming from Patchou.
- Several bugs have been fixed but I had such a busy week that I didn't take the time to write them down in this file, sorry :p.
- This version is the last one before the Messenger 7 compatible version. This means that this version is NOT compatible with MSN Messenger 7 yet. I want the next version to be worthwhile so it's taking me some time to develop it.
