We’re excited to announce that we released late Monday evening (Seattle time.) In addition to the URL Change, we have added support for many additional modules.  Some of these are:

* Available in these countries for this release:   Australia, United Kingdom, & USA
We listened to your feedback and have brought back the list of all your photo albums on the home page. When you edit your Space, you can use this list to re-order your albums: Just click on the up or down arrow that displays when you hover your mouse over the album title in the list box.

We also fixed the bug that prevented many of you from adding photos to your MSN Space.  This bug affected mainly IE 7.0 beta users  –  so test it out and upload your photos today!  Remember also that we recommend that you follow the steps defined here and here to set your browser security settings and to turn off pop-up blockers in I.E. and Norton for spaces.msn.com only so that the upload control is not blocked.  If you experience problems uploading photos – please let us know so that we can help.

With the URL change, we recognize that it will be some time while search engines re-crawl Spaces and pick-up your blog entries, lists, photos, and more at their updated URL’s.  It may also take some time for search engines and other tracking services to re-crawl links.  If you’re working on a service that crawls Spaces, please note that http://thespacecraft.spaces.msn.com is the same as http://spaces.msn.com/thespacecraft

We’re very excited about this release since it will make Spaces faster and gives a stronger, more stable platform from which to Launch “Windows Live Spaces” soon.  Stay tuned…

MSN, Spaces
