Download the Windows Live Essentials Beta Refresh

Today, we’ve released a refresh of the Windows Live Essentials Betas. You can download the updated suite at The Windows Live Essentials consist of Messenger, Mail, Photo Gallery, Movie Maker, Writer, Toolbar, and Family Safety.

We want to make sure we iron out all the kinks before removing the “beta” tags ;-)

Earlier this month, we rolled out the new Windows Live web services.

Does this update *all* of these programs to newer versions? I don't use all of them, but I do use some of them - if anyone can confirm version number deltas, I'd appreciate it....
