A new tech site Newriot.com received an internal copy of AOL Instant Messenger version 4.4 Alpha. Several new features are in the works over at the Online Giant, including a new logging feature that will create logs on your hard drive. A log manager has been added to manage the file transfer, chat, IM, and talk logs. The preferences menu has been redone to make it more streamlined, as the company expands upon its large number of existing preferences and customizations. You can read about and download the new AOL over at Newriot.com.
