Originally, I started this out as two separate packages. The reason for this is because of the size, and users should have a choice if they want the extra stuff in the application or not, among many other reasons we can think of.
Now aMSN has an update release of version 0.97.2. I took the liberty of separating the extra plugins and skins from the package and making those into a separate package again.
If user already has plugins installed and they just want to update their version to the later, they can do so, and not lose their plugins.
If user wants simply plain aMSN then can have it, and choose to install the extras package at a later time.....
If we could please keep these separated, that would be great.
I only did packages for the 5.9 and they are in testing now. they should work for the 5.8, but I have not tested there.
