  • Brand new emoticons, program icons and alert sounds
  • Instantly change the look and feel of your Yahoo! Messenger interface
  • Automatic groups are created in your contact list based on your Yahoo! interests (i.e. Yahoo! Sports Fantasy Football league)

    Saw this the other day on The WPF Blog (http://thewpfblog.com/?p=76), and it looks really well made.

    Now to wait and see if there’s going to be a WPF version of Windows Live Messenger?
