Chris over at Windows Live Spaces blog has announced a minor upgrade to Spaces: you can now include the Messenger IM control and SkyDrive files in the Custom HTML module using embed codes.  Some back end changes have been made to Spaces as well, “to make the service faster and more reliable”.

Two other Windows Live product teams have posted recently, too: the Live QnA blog posted Tuesday on their “new and improved refresh”, which they are apparently calling their “Renaissance release”. 

Here're the Live QnA list of improvements:

  • Improved Live ID signup experience
  • Redesigned registration page, including a required agreement to the Code of Conduct
  • Improved site promotion, including the MSN Election Channel, and Live Search results pages (more to come)
  • New look and feel
  • Improved site navigation and tag content
  • Recognition for top contributors (with high best answers to total answers ratio)
