After delivering new Wave 4 features like Sweep and ActiveViews to all 350 million Hotmail users worldwide, the Hotmail team began trickling out additional fixes and updates: “Some were planned, like push email, calendar, and contacts through Exchange ActiveSync. We’ve addressed with updates in last few weeks: include the way you can view message source (right-click in the Inbox is back!), an easier reply action in threaded conversations, and more visible signout for integrated Messenger on the web.
Hotmail Calendar Service got an update to include support for weather updates. And, that some other Live services — the Web-only ones, not the software and service ones known as “Windows Live Essentials” — have been refreshed, as well. Windows Live Devices got a refresh, and a LinkedIn integration option was added to to users” Windows Live accounts.
“In addition to these adjustments, we’re beginning today to roll out new features and highlight new partners that’ll continue to address customer needs we focused on this summer,” explained Dick Craddock.
