This version introduced features such as handwriting and nudges.
Everything I tested (small avatars, changing fonts, changing window color, and using custom emoticons).
What does not
Running the program for more than 15 minutes (approx.). I didn't encounter this problem with 0.9.59 for many days, but for some strange reason on my current WINE version and previous ones, after a while the program will crash, then when you try to run it again, it will log in, report a wininet fixme about having no RAS support, then crash after logging in.
Large avatars don't work still, and no matter how you install Flash, winks refuse to work.
Default avatars don't install with MSN for some reason.
What was not tested
Webcam and voice features, and winks. The handwriting feature I didn't get a chance to test.
I'd test this with one of the release candidates, but I still have Gutsy (still waiting for my install CD to come in the mail so I can switch over to Hardy). Also, I really don't know why it does this. I tried native wininet, and it crashed before starting. Oh, and native richedit is no longer necessary with releases of WINE newer than 0.9.61
