Oh So Shiny Yahoo Messenger for Vista Released

When we recently wrote about the release of Yahoo Messenger for Windows 9.0, one commenter called it “sad” that the version for Vista had not yet been released. Others sounded an outcry over the lack of tabbed windows in version 9.0.

Well, my friends, both are finally here – Yahoo has released a version of messenger for Vista and it has tabbed windows.

It has also been fully skinned for Vista and integrates into that operating system’s gadget bar. Other features include the ability to change layout of our contact list and automatic filtering of contacts as you enter search terms.

Yahoo says it will maintain both this new version for Vista (still labeled as “preview”) and version 9.0 released just over a month ago.
