Messenger 6 for Mac is now available

Filed under: All,MacBU — Schwieb @ 12:04 pm

Messenger 6 is now available on MacTopia. I’m sure many of you will be unhappy to find out that it still does not have A/V support. However, Mary Starman has put up a blog post on Mac Mojo that outlines the scheduling and integration issues we’re working with.

The good news is that I can now publicly say that we are adding A/V support to a future release of Messenger for the Mac. I’ve personally seen the code and heard some of the status reports. I can’t speak about any sort of version or date of availability, but it is coming!

Things have been busy at work! I’m hip-deep in the converter work for Excel 2004 so that it can read and write the new Open XML file formats from Win Office 2007 and Mac Office 12. During several build cycles yesterday and today I finished and posted my first real entry on Mac Mojo.

The converters are coming along but we’ve got a long way yet to go. Stay tuned here or to MacTopia for announcements on their availability.
