Microsoft revealed on Wednesday that it plans to issue an update to Windows Live Essentials 2011 this week.
The software giant is aiming to improve the general performance and quality of the popular Windows Live suite of applications. The update will include full SSL support for Windows Live Mail and Microsoft’s latest Bing Bar. Microsoft will also include the following fixes:
- Mail: We fixed a sorting issue in the Sent items folder and improved the upload reliability and instrumentation in Photo mail.
- Messenger: We fixed a couple of stability issues and made various changes for improved voice and video quality. We fixed an issue that was causing sound to be lost after upgrading, and we improved performance when displaying the MSN Today page in the main window.
- Photo Gallery: We implemented various bug fixes for crashes related to launching Photo Gallery through Autoplay and facial recognition.
- And more: We made many other usability, performance, and stability improvements across the suite of Windows Live Essentials apps.
