While at PDC09, I met up with Francois Bochatay from Sobees. He showed me an internal build of the Sobees clienst that has a ton of new features, including inline URL previews, Windows 7 integration, support for different social networks like Twitter, Facebook and Myspace, as well as integration with Yahoo. A version hosted on Azure will also be coming soon.

The Sobees clients are written in Silverlight and WPF and share 90+% of their code between the different versions. The Silverlight version supports different systems, and the WPF version includes Windows 7 light-up such as jump lists.
