Baidu IM second beta next week

Rumor is that the second beta of Baidu Hi,
the instant messaging client, will be
released on June 5. Leaked versions suggest
that the new beta will feature a number of
new features:

1. Editing of custom user icons
2. Integration with the TTPlayer music player
3. Import/export of emoticons
4. Emoticon bundle trading
5. Automatically adding people with similar
interests to users' buddy lists
6. Integration with Baidu Post Bar, Baidu
Zhidao, Baidupedia and other products
7. Group voting (i.e. when a group leader posts
a poll, users can conveniently place votes)
