MSN Messenger 7.0.0813 Soon via Quick Fix Engineering Patch
Contributed by: G3nu1n3, at 4/28/2005 10:35:00 PM.

For the first time in history, the MSN Messenger team is working on a QFE (or "hotfix") patch to the current build of MSN Messenger (0777).

QFE stands for Quick Fix Engineering, which means upgrading (to build 0813) through a small patch instead of a 7mb setup file like we're used to. In the past, many smallband users have complained about having to download entire versions just to upgrade. It seems that Microsoft is planning to address this complaint and, who knows, maybe MSN Messenger updates will finally be delivered through Windows Update in the future.

The patch, currently available strictly to a handful of official BETA-testers, fixes a few bugs (eg. the "Always Sign On As:" bug). In general, BETA-testers have witnessed a faster and smoother overall performance (eg. during the sign-in process) after applying the patch.

The QFE patch to 7.0.0777 is expected to be released to the public in a matter of hours, maybe days, as soon as it's been thoroughly tested.
