- The position of the contact list window is properly recorded and restored when you restart Messenger, even when your taskbar is on the top or left side of the screen.
- New behavior when you enable Plus! Notifications for contacts sign-ins.
- The notifications configuration window now has a 4th option to explicitly select contact sign-ins (only available when you enable sign-in notifications in the preferences).
- "Status change to: Online" notification will display notifications only when the contact was already online and changed his/her status back to Online.
- The Quick Icons panel has been improved again.
- Messenger Emoticons are displayed from Messenger resources. This means two things: they look much better in the Quick Icon panel and, if you are using a skin that replaces defaults emoticons, you'll see those in the panel.
- A QuickIconBgColor registry value has been added to change the background color of the panel. This can be nice if you want the panel to have the same look and email as your Messenger background.
- Personalised Status tags are displayed properly in your contact list for blocked contacts.
- Auto-update deactivation works better now.
