Fire 0.32.d will work through October 15 at which point the old MSN
protocol will be disabled.
After that, only the new MSN protocol will work. We want to continue to
support MSN, but there may be some delay while the new protocol is
reverse engineered before Fire can support it again. Or it's possible
Fire will not add the new MSN protocol at all. It depends on how
successful the open source community is at figuring out the new
protocol, and whether Microsoft requires some sort of special agreement
from third party clients.
I wish I had a more confident answer but at this point it's really not
clear what will happen.
