In early September 2007, you will see eight new / modified product categories in the Windows Live family of products.

 

Following are the categories -

1.     Windows Live contains updates/upgrades for all Windows Live programs. All Windows Live programs are compatible with both Windows XP and Windows Vista operating systems.

2.     Messenger Installation and Upgrades contains installation and upgrade files for Windows Live Messenger, an instant messaging, file sharing, and PC to PC free calling program.

3.     Photo Gallery Installation and Upgrades contains installation and upgrade files for Windows Live Photo Gallery, a tool for editing photos and organizing and sharing photos and videos. This program expands and improves on features available in Windows Photo Gallery (part of Windows Vista), and works on either Windows XP or Windows Vista.

4.     Mail Installation and Upgrades contains installation and upgrade files for an e-mail program that allows users to manage multiple e-mail accounts, newsgroups, and RSS feeds in one place. This program combines elements of Outlook Express and Windows Mail with new features and improvements that are unique to new Windows Live Mail.

5.     Writer Installation and Upgrades contains installation and upgrade files for a program that makes it easier to edit and publish rich content to your blog. Writer is compatible with multiple blog services, including Windows Live Spaces.

6.     OneCare Family Safety Installation contains installation files for a program that helps parents protect their children from access to inappropriate website content and contacts.

7.     Sign-in Assistant Installation and Upgrades contains installation and upgrade files for a tool that simplifies switching between multiple Windows Live IDs. This program is used in conjunction with all Windows Live online services, and is therefore recommended.

8.     Toolbar Installation and Upgrades contains installation and upgrade files for Windows Live Toolbar, an Internet Explorer extension that provides search, customizable buttons, and quick access to maps and other information.

 

In September, we will be submitting Beta releases for the above mentioned applications through these categories. The apps will be marked as Optional and Feature Packs. We will let you know when we ship the final release (RTM) version of the Windows Live software.

We recommend that if you chose to subscribe to updates for the above mentioned categories – subscribe as a group, treating all categories and updates to this family of products together.
