Yahoo! Messenger 10 Final ScreenshotAs of yesterday, Yahoo! Messenger 10 is no longer in Beta. This latest version (10.0.0.1102) incorporates many bug fixes, including some related to the new video call feature. Yahoo teams laso improved the overall stability of the product.

New Features on Yahoo! Messenger 10 :

Improvements in the webcam detection logic:
· If you were able to use your webcam on 9.0 or other IM programs, but not on Yahoo! Messenger 10, this fix should take care of the issue.

Explanation for grayed-out video call button:
· If your video call button is grayed-out when you're IM'ing with a friend, it's because they're on an older version of Yahoo! Messenger. In order to receive your video call, they also need to upgrade to Yahoo! Messenger 10 Beta. To help reduce confusion about this, we added an inline message explaining this.

Smoother handling of unanswered calls:
· When you make a call to a friend but they don't answer within 20 seconds, the call is automatically terminated. Previously there was no messaging about this, so we added one to let you know that your friend did not answer your call.

Better explanation for downgraded video calls:
· In the event your internet connection can no longer support the full video call (e.g. video + voice), the conversation gets downgraded to a voice-only call. When this happens, the video picture disappears. This is the correct behavior, but we added some inline messaging so you'll know when and why it's happening.
