For those of you who haven’t seen it at, the leaked Messenger 8.5 build contained some hidden but basic Windows Live Folders integration/promotion. While the infobar isn’t earth-shattering, remember this isn’t a beta build so it’ll be interesting to see if this changes come the official beta program.

And for those of you wondering where Windows Live Essentials and Dashboard went, there’s a new Dashboard application installed to Windows LiveInstaller. This directory also includes a new Shared Setup application with the name Windows Live Wave 2 Suite. (“Wave” refers to the group or wave of products to be released.)

Roll on those betas!
