    Windows Live Essentials beta refreshed

    Repost from the Windows Live team blog

    About three months ago, we released public betas of the Windows Live Essentials – our suite of downloadable programs for your Windows PC, including Messenger, Mail, Photo Gallery, Movie Maker, Writer, Toolbar, and Family Safety.

    Since then, we’ve received a ton of great feedback and we’ve been using that information to update these programs. We’re getting very close to the final release. But before we get there, we’re refreshing the beta versions one more time to make sure we’ve ironed out all the kinks. You can get the latest betas from: http://download.live.com/.

    We’re working hard to get the final versions ready to go as soon as possible. So let us know what you like and don’t like, and if you’re running into any issues that we need to take care of before we take the “beta” tags off.

    We hope that you’ll find the latest versions even more enjoyable and useful than the first beta versions. Thank you all for the great feedback. Keep it coming!

    We're excited to report that the completely redesigned photos.live.com is up and running!

    Here are just a few reasons why you should go check it out:

    • Beautiful new views of your photos, including an amazing Slide show view.
    • 25 GB of FREE storage! That's a ton of pictures of any resolution plus there's no more 500-per-month limit on photos.
    • The photo-centric What's New feed on photos.live.com shows you the photos your friends are sharing.
    • Spaces and SkyDrive photos are now combined, so all of your photos are in one place.
    • Better permissions give you greater control over who can see your photos online.

    And that only scratches the surface of the new Windows Live Photos service. In future posts, we'll take a look at more of the amazing features Photos has to offer. For even more information, read the SkyDrive team's blog post.
