So I've been receiving quite a bit of mail lately, asking whether Twessenger works with the latest Windows Live Messenger 2009 Beta. The short answer, unfortunately, is - no, it doesn't.

The latest Messenger beta build introduced a number of major changes, including what appears to be the removal of the "Shared Folders" feature and the official "add-ins" API. As you might imagine, Twessenger relied on this API in order to hook into the application.

I haven't had the time to dig deeper to figure out if there's anything I can do to work around this, but the odds of a fix coming anytime soon, if ever, are very low at this point. I'm going to steer away from attempting to use undocumented and unofficial methods because they're bound to break with any future Messenger updates, and I really don't have the time to provide support and write patches.

I'm sorry if this answer is a let-down for you. I hope that someone out there can provide a working solution that you can migrate over to soon. Thanks for all the feedback and kind words that many of you sent in during Twessenger's lifetime. It was fun while it lasted. :)
