Messenger: Mac 7 with Bonjour & AV meetings

Messenger for Mac 7 adds Bonjour, AV meetings
Picture 5.pngMicrosoft has released Messenger for Mac 7, the latest version of its ported instant messaging client. For all users the major addition is support for Apple’s Bonjour technology, which lets users more quickly detect other users and peripherals on a network.

It is now also possible to sort through contacts with a new search tool, and create nicknames for people that will remain unchanged even as their screen name is altered.

Corporate users can now host multi-party audio and video conferences, a feature enhanced by the ability to more rapidly check someone’s chat availability. Finally the software has improved support for Office Communications Server 2007, granting users the ability to search corporate-level address books from within Messenger.

The download is 21MB, and requires Mac OS X 10.4.9 or later. It should not be used with Live Communications Server 2005, which only supports up to Messenger 6.
