Windows Live Messenger 9 Beta

Well the Beta (private) of WLM9 is out, so here are a few of screenies of it.
It mostly looks the same, but new features include:

* Multiple points of presence; You can now log into wlm9 from two different locations! (any version below 9 will not work with this)
* Custom contact sounds; You can set different sounds for individual contacts.
* Status messages are clickable
* "SPIM" reporting; You can report and then block users who spam.
* Signature Sounds; The sound your contacts hear when you log in. (I guess)

These are just the features that I have noticed so far.

Just the main contacts list, no changes here:


There is the possibility that these features may change and that others may be added.

Can this be installed along with Windows Live Messenger 8.5 ?
