Windows Live Wave 3 services launch today (Updated)

More news on the updates being rolled out across the Windows Live world, courtesy Liveside.net:

As we hinted at yesterday, today marks the update for most of the Windows Live services to Wave 3. This release (Codename Peloton for those keeping track), is expected to mainly take place from 4pm PST onwards, and will include the release of new services such as Windows Live Groups, Photos and Profile as well as the significantly updated Home and Mobile offerings. No this doesn’t include the release of Windows Live Essentials, the desktop applications.

Note, Hotmail and Calendar are both on a different release schedule, and as such will remain at their Wave 3 Milestone 2 builds until a later update. So no WebMessenger integration just yet 😦

Of course while you’re waiting, you can read all about the updates in our previous posts, a few of the more important ones are highlighted below
