.The first beta of the newly renamed Windows Live Messenger, Beta 1, was released on December 13, 2005.[2] It remained online and usable for around a month until an auto-update feature forced one to install Beta 2, rendering this version obsolete.^ Windows Live Messenger version 2009 .

Protocol

Windows Live Messenger uses the Microsoft Notification Protocol (MSNP) over TCP (and optionally over HTTP to deal with proxies) to connect to the .NET Messenger Service—a service offered on port 1863 of "messenger.hotmail.com." The current version is 18 (MSNP18), used by Windows Live Messenger and other third-party clients.
.The protocol is not completely secret; Microsoft disclosed version 2 (MSNP2) to developers in 1999 in an Internet Draft, but never released versions 8 or higher to the public.^ The final release candidate for Microsoft's newest version of Windows was made available Tuesday, and already infected pirated versions of the software are making the rounds.
