Windows Live has already gone through a series of updates recently including ActiveSync support. In the next wave of updates, tagged Windows Live Wave 4, Microsoft will be adding (at least) the following features:
- Windows Live Calendar will feature a five day weather forecast. Weather forecast information will be shown in the day, week, and month views. Users will also have the ability to change the city/zip code for the forecast.
- Windows Live Hotmail and Calendar will be adding full-session SSL support.
There's also may be a little house cleaning with Windows Live in the form of a slight name change. Instead of "Windows Live Calendar", we may be referring to the calendar as "Windows Live Hotmail Calendar". While it may sound superficial, it pulls the calendar in line with the other Hotmail features on Windows Live.
While the word "imminent" was used to describe the Wave 4 update, no hard date has been set for the release. We also aren't sure what new online features will carry over to the Windows Phone.
