  • Added support for the new "I’m" emoticons of Messenger 8.1 in various
    Messenger Plus! windows.
  • Some improvements for script developers:
    • The script editor window remembers its size and position.
    • A "find text" window has been added to the script editor, accessible
      from the Options menu or with Ctrl+F.
    • On error, the script debugging window now displays the file name
      associated with the line number where the error occurred.
  • This version includes access to the 6th anniversary contest that will
    start in about a week from now. This will be removed in
    the next version when the contest is over. For more information, check out
    the announcement on
  • A new selection criteria has been added for event notifications. You can
    now choose to create notifications that automatically apply to contacts with
    opened conversation windows. Useful for example to get notified when someone
    signs-out unexpectedly if you don't notice it in the chat window.
  • No extra header is added to chat logs anymore when closing a chat window
    and reopening it soon after. The default timeout for new session headers is
    10 minutes and can be modified with the new ChatLogSessionWait registry
  • To help people who customize the looks of their Messenger Plus! chat
    logs, if a "custom.css" file is found in the Messenger Plus!’s installation
    directory, it is automatically copied in the directory of newly created
    XHTML chat log files (only if no custom.css file already exits in the
    destination directory).
  • Blocked contacts are now displayed with the grey offline buddy icon when
    needed in tabbed chats and desktop contact windows.
  • An option has been added to display the e-mail of the current user in
    the tooltip of the systray icon (mostly useful when using several accounts
    together, enabled by default).
  • The contact name displayed in custom event notifications can now be
    modified by formatting the message like this: \Name\Message.
  • A Turkish translation has been added to the setup.
  • Added a new fail-safe mechanism to add the "Plus! Not Loaded" menu in
    more failure circumstances, to inform the user of the problem.
  • The setup uses a better compression method and is now even smaller than
    it was for version 4.00.
  • Scripts from the previous script developer contest are not included
    anymore (they can all be downloaded from the site).
  • The default font for HTML chat logs has been changed from Microsoft Sans
    Serif to MS Shell Dlg (which actually maps to your system's default UI font).
    This was changed in Messenger some time ago and the change in Messenger
    Plus! will reduce the size of HTML log files generated with the default font
    (the logs will look the same as before).
  • If several event notifications apply to the same user and have exactly
    the same parameters (message & sound), the notifications are not duplicated.
  • When a script is installed, enabled or disabled, the change is reflected
    in every Messenger currently running. When that happens, all
    the scripts in the other instances are restarted. To avoid causing problems
    to script developers, creating a new script or editing an existing one will
    not trigger an automatic reload in the other instances.
  • Fixed: scripts or add-ons that add a systray icon can cause problems to
    some of the Messenger Plus! features.
  • Fixed: the new enhanced text copy feature does not support RTF
    (formatting attributes are not copied with the text).
  • Fixed: the enhanced text copy feature is not used when pressing Ctrl+Ins
    or Shift+Del.
  • Fixed: Messenger Plus! notification popups do not stack and appear one
    at a time.
  • Fixed: encrypted logs cannot be generated nor read on some Windows
    accounts if the Messenger Plus! keyset container got corrupted.
  • Fixed: auto-update setup does not launch on Windows Vista (fixed for
    future auto-updates, excluding this version).
  • Fixed: Messenger Lock does not sign-out the current user if his status
    is appear-offline (when "sign-out" is the status selected for the lock).
  • Fixed: chat windows cannot be opened anymore and Messenger may crash if
    a third-party software is used to close a tabbed chat window.
  • Fixed: bug introduced in the last version. Tabbed chats don't flash when
    some special actions such as /me commands or winks are received.
  • Scripts: fixed a problem with rich edit controls re-appearing after a
    position change of the parent.
  • Scripts: added EditBox_SetCurSel, EditBox_ReplaceSel,
    EditBox_GetCurSelStart, EditBox_GetCurSelEnd,
    RichEdit_GetTextRange and
    RichEdit_SetCharFormat to PlusWnd objects to simplify working with edit
  • Scripts: Interop::Call and Interop::Call2 now accept up to 12 parameters
    so that functions like CreateWindowEx can be called if needed.
  • Scripts: fixed title bar draw glitch when sending WM_SETICON to an
    interface window.
  • Scripts: OnEvent_Timer function calls are not automatically displayed in
    the Script Debugging window anymore. This prevents the window from filling
    up with continuous repetitive calls.
  • And yes, many other small things fixed here and there that are not worth
    mentioning :-).
