Is there any way to get the final version of Messages.app installed on Lion? For reasons I'll not get into at this point upgrading to Mountain Lion is not possible. I had the beta of Messages.app but removed it because it was buggy.

Is there any way to install the 1.0 version on Lion?

Update: The final build of Messages isn't available for Lion. It is only available on Mountain Lion.

MacRumors had an article on this:

Apple has not removed the download entirely, however, as it is still accessible via direct download (63.8 MB)

You can also download it via Mac Update.
