New Hotmail Update...

Has anyone here received the Hotmail update yet? It is suppose to add some new features and such. Ifyouve gotten it, what do you think? Are you impressed and what are the best of the new features?

I havent received the update yet and have no idea how long itll be before I do. Ive seen others around the net have gotten it already. Im looking forward to checking it out and hope I get it soon

I'm looking forward to using it aswell. The current one is very outdated.

I received a mail saying the update was out, but I haven't seen any changes yet. I'll give it some time.

Wow, I wasnt aware of a Windows Live Mail update. I really hope they roll out some good new features and some customize options. I hate the limited color scheme they give you to choose from.

In case anyone had missed this, part of the new Hotmail (although not directly connected, it's a separate rollout) will be Exchange ActiveSync support. So iOS, Android, and other ActiveSync-supporting mobile platforms will finally be able to get push email, contacts, and calendar updates without needing third-party apps!

In part from Update to the Hotmail rollout

Quote:
Two weeks ago, we started the Hotmail rollout with a single cluster. Right now, a few million customers have the new Hotmailless than 1% of our customer base. We roll out new software slowly at first in order to give our engineers a chance to study the new software running at scale with real customers.

When we roll out new software, we typically find a few things that we want to tweak before going out more broadly. Most of these things are actually invisible to our customers – they usually have to do with our ability to monitor the site or make the rollout itself go more smoothly.

This time was no exception, and we have made a few minor changes to the way Hotmail works “under the hood” in order to make the rollout go even more smoothly for the remaining 99% of our customers.

This week, we will put the new Hotmail onto a few additional clusters that have slightly different characteristics (different hardware, different mix of customers), which will help us learn even more. We expect that we’ll make a few other tweaks as we learn.

After that, the release will really pick up speed, and we’ll start to put the new software on more and more clusters. Of course, we have hundreds of clusters and we want to make sure everything goes smoothly, so it will still take a few weeks to finish.
