Notice: This post is more than a year old. It may be outdated.

A new version of MSN-dedicated chat client Emesene has been released. 

Updated to version 2.11.9, Emesene sees a handful of new features and improvements, including: –

  • In-app downloading of additional plugins and themes
  • Improved Plus! color parser
  • Improved version of papyon (the MSN library)
  • ‘Contact Management’ (read: Privacy List) for MSN
  • Custom emoticon fixes
  • Almost 200 bug fixes
Emesene plugin downloads

Before you get too excited about the notion of  in-app theme downloading I should say that whilst a bunch of themes are available, including ’Ambiance’, ‘Radiance’ and ‘Faenza’, they are not entirely noticeable once applied: –

Yep that's faenza


Emesene 2.11.9 is not yet available via the Emesene Stable PPA, but can be downloaded in .zip form @ where, once extracted, it can be run from the folder.

Do bear in mind that whilst the Emesene 2.x series is the only currently supported/developed version of Emesene it should still be considered beta-quality software.
