The public beta of Windows Live Essentials Wave 4, which includes Windows Live Messenger was updated this evening, addressing several bugs while adding new features to the previous build.

Most significantly Messenger now includes full Facebook intergration, allowing you and your Facebook friends to talk between clients, a feature heavily requested and even implemented by third party developers:

According to the Inside Windows Live blog:
  • Messenger is quicker at loading information, signing in and uses 30% less CPU for video messaging
  • Facebook intergration has been further implemented, starting today in the US, UK, France, Brazil, Germany, and Russia

More information soon.

Facebook chat integration is currently US-only I think, seeing as I'm in Australia and it doesn't work.
