New Windows Live Writer

There’s a new Windows Live Writer!

I haven’t played too much with it yet, but from the announcement, it looks like they’ve fixed most of the complaints I had:

  • Tagging support
  • Categories are sorted by name and support scrolling, plus improved support for reading categories from your blog
  • Improved startup performance  (me:  YAY!!)
  • Insert hyperlink added to context menu when text is selected
  • Custom date support for Community Server
  • Improved style detection for blogs 
  • Fixed issues with pasting URLs and links
  • Open post dialog retrieves more than 25 old posts
