The screenshots that are being circulated at this time do not show the WPF features because the build being shown is M1. We can confirm that M2 has been released internally and is currently being tested by internal dogfood testers. By the time we enter beta phase (which should be less than a month away), we will see some nifty WPF features. So if you haven't made the transition to Windows Vista, now would be the time to because Messenger is not the only thing we're going to see taking advantage of Vista only technology. Wave 3 of Windows Live is going to be the best wave we've seen, so keep checking back for more information!
Oh, and if you don't have a Microsoft Zune, we'd highly suggest you get one because there's been some awesome new features added to Windows Live Messenger that will make your Zune experience 10x better. One feature we've been told we're going to see in the next build of Windows Live Messenger is complete synchronization with your display status and your Zune Social status.
