If you’ve not read yet, Messenger Stuff reporting that upcoming Windows Live Messenger version 9.0’s interface will use the graphics effects available through WPF [Windows Presentation Foundation], where supported.

To put it simply, this finally means that we will see transparency effects in the various windows of the program, possibly similar to those already seen in Yahoo! Messenger for Vista. We are led to believe that the actual design has not changed much but the WPF effects have been integrated well in what is bound to be a popular new addition.
