yahoo messenger 10 pre-alpha

Yahoo Messenger 10 has not been officially released but I managed to get my hands on pre-alfa release which comes with 2 major improvements:

-For the first time you can change the language to something other than english:

yahoo messenger 10 non-english

-There are now 2 tabs in the main window: one for contacts and one for Y! Updates:

Please note that version 10 of Yahoo Messenger cannot be installed separately and will override your Yahoo Messenger 9 in Program Files. After installing, restart your computer or else Yahoo Messenger will close unexpectedly.

I've been using it on Windows 7 and although it says it's an pre-alpha version, I did not encounter any errors so far.
