It’s been a busy couple of days in the world of Windows Live! Last night, Microsoft released the newest release and upgrade to Windows Live Mail Beta- Milestone 7. An official list of the newest changes has not been released. A week ago, an early preview was posted at The expected changes are:

– Loading indicator
– Storage Meter
– Recently Updated Spaces
– Return of Checkboxes (just like Hotmail)
– Drag & Drop Improvements
– First Run Improvements
– Ability to turn on/off Spell Checker
– Signature Rich Text Editor
– Print Contacts

At first glance, it appears as though the expected changes listed above have been implemented. Windows Live Mail is currently being used by 6 million people, and they continue to increase the number of beta users. It is important to remember that it is still in beta, and while it is a big milestone, everything probably won’t run perfectly yet.
