Short: Microsoft Push Out Minor Windows Live Essentials Update
By on March 22nd, 2012

On Tuesday, Microsoft released an update for the Windows Live Essentials 2011 suite of software: Windows Live Messenger, Mail, Photo Gallery, Movie Maker, Family Safety, Writer, and Mesh. While the update doesn’t introduce much in the way of features, it is pretty important to update. Microsoft stated in a blog post that the update “contains critical fixes”, and, as a result, Windows Vista SP2 and Windows 7 users will see a notification prompting them to update.

The update is available in 48 languages, so pretty much all Windows Live Essentials users will be able to take advantage of it. While we don’t know much of what this update actually does, we do at least know the build number for those of you keeping count: 15.4.3555.0308. I do wish they released a changelog, I’m genuinely curious about what the update has to offer now. Various commenters on the announcement blog post concur.

Whatever the case, though, you should just update because it seems important.
