    MSN Messenger 6.1 updates

    Some chaps have been complaining about updates to ZoneAlarm.

    I am complaining about updates to <big>MSN Messenger 6.1</big>!
    The first build was, I think. 0201, then, without notification, it went to 6.1.0203, then yesterday or today, it's gone to 6.1.0207!

    I found on one website "There are no visible major changes in this build and Microsoft has also not released any changelog for this update.".

    There seems to be no information on the MSN Messenger site about updates, what has changed since last time, or even what version you will get if you download now!

    Does anyone know whether answers to these three questions can be obtained?

    (There's also an amusing statement on the website that MSN Messenger Video and Audio does not support 256 colours, and you should change to 16 colours! Pity my only choices are 32-bit colour or 16-bit colour... And the video works fine on 32-bit colour!)

    John, The only one I can answer is the last. In the USA, you get 6.1.207 when you download.

    Yes, I did that, AND installed it - that's how I knew it was 6.1.0207!!!

    What I wanted to know, was how can I tell the version number <big>before</big> I do a 4 MB download? (It can't be too much to ask for Microsoft to give a clue somewhere...! I don't really want to do a download every other day in the hope of getting a new version which might solve my webcam "video works, but audio gives nothing" problem...
