Yesterday Microsoft released a refresh to their Windows Live Essentials Wave 4 suite beta.


Back in June we talked about the Wave 4 beta, now there is a refresh bringing some bug fixes and improvements.

If you don’t know what Windows Live Essentials is, here is how Microsoft describe them:

Windows Live Essentials beta includes free programs from Microsoft for photos, movies, instant messaging, e-mail, blogging, and more. Get them all in one download and get more done with Windows.

Windows Live Essentials beta requires Windows 7 or Windows Vista. Learn how to upgrade from Windows XP. It includes beta versions of Messenger, Photo Gallery, Mail, Movie Maker, Writer, Family Safety, and Sync, plus Bing Bar and Messenger Companion. You also get Microsoft Office Outlook Connector Pack and Microsoft Silverlight.

You can head over the Windows Live Essentials site and download beta now. In fact, this post was written using the Windows Live Writer beta.

  1. Downloading now. One of the best improvements is to the Movie Maker application. I do all of my videos with the Live Movie Maker. Sweet program.

  2. Yep, I'm downloading this one also! I haven't tried writing my posts with it yet though, perhaps I'll give that a try. Thanks Andrew!
