Windows Live Essentials 2011 beta 2 coming next week

12 Ago/10

Mary-Jo Foley of ZD Net has reported that Microsoft is readying another public beta of their forthcoming Windows Live Essentials 2011 suite, an update to the previously titled Wave 3 suite of programs.

Windows Live Essentials is commonly described as being exactly that, essential, as it’s suite of add-on programs, including Mail, Photo Gallery and the blogging tool, Writer, are often considered not just programs that you really can’t be without, but also some of the finest programs of their type.

Mary Jo says…

the new beta will incorporate new icons, new features and many bug fixes. He didn’t specify any of those features or fixes. One fix I’m personally hoping for is to remedy whatever is kept Windows Live Messenger Wave 4 Beta 1 from working on my Windows 7 PC. I got it to work twice but then kept receiving messages telling me the service was unavailable. When I did log in, Messenger froze my PC. Microsoft officials didn’t have a suggested fix for me, so I’m back to the Wave 3 Live Messenger for now.

There’s no release date yet for the final version but it’s clear that Microsoft are storming ahead as it’s now been long since the first beta of the 2011 suite was released to the public.

The suite features the Ribbon interface first introduced with Office 2007 and later included in some Windows 7 applications such as the new WordPad.  The full suite includes the programs Messenger, Live mail, Writer, Photo Gallery, Movie maker, Live Sync (formerly Live Mesh), Family Safety and the Bing toolbar.  I would imaging that a future version of the suite would additionally include the free Microsoft anti-virus package Microsoft Security Essentials.

You can download the beta from this website.
