Yahoo! Messenger allows you to exchange messages, voice chat, file transfer, mail and stock quote alerts, sports scores, news, and much more.

I just downloaded it and couldn't stop myself for posting about this new version here.
First off all after installing it you will notice a better changed GUI (You have options to use the classic)
The feature i love most is "Create your own Yahoo! Avatar" :woot:
Click here to know more about Yahoo! Avatars with screenshots.
Your friends can see your avatar in their Messenger Friends Lists and in the IM window when you chat with them.
See how it looks like:
Friend List

Other cool feature is "Stealth Settings" for making yourself appear online to some and offline to others on your Messenger list. :P

All New Features in Yahoo Messenger 6 are:
  • LAUNCHcast Radio
  • Yahoo! Games
  • Yahoo! Avatars
  • Audibles
  • Address Book
  • Stealth Settings
  • New Emoticons

Remember: This is a beta version, for testing the newest version and giving people a preview of new features and functionality. Beta version may contain undiscovered issues.

I'm already working on building a Red and Black skin for this version of Y!Messenger. If anyone wants to offer any assistance I'd appreciate it, for instance, I am having a problem changing the background and text colors where the contacts are shown in the main window.

Where are the 'Indigo' and 'Maveric Blue' skins in the Yahoo Messenger's folder?

I've got like 6 skins now, but only 5 are available.... One I made just for my wife. So, you can choose from any except Mountain Dew Blue. :yes:
