Emesene 1.48 is released. This is an community/unofficial edition but has given semi-recognition by the Emesene devs. (Was on the front page on the community portal, posted by an admin of the forum etc).
Personally I found webcam still kinda iffy, worth a short though,IF YOU HAVE x64 THESE PACKAGES ARE NOT FOR YOU, USE THE SOURCE
NOTE YOU MAY WANT TO REMOVE YOUR CUSTOM PLUGINS THAT MAY BE OLDER THAN THE ONES INCLUDED IN THOSE PACKAGES OTHERWISE EMESENE WILL USE THE OLDER ONES. CHECK ~/.config/emesene1.0/pluginsEmesene/ DIRECTORY FOR OLD STUFF.
no more gui locks
- compatible with latest window live messenger (wlm 9, or 14)

Officially Emesene is still at 1.01, but this is no longer being developed as the devs are focusing on a total rewrite for Emesene 2. They are open for the community to maintain Emesene 1.0x in the meantime though, this is one of their releases.
Debs, RPMs, tarballs and source can all be found in the annoucement link.
