New Version Of Windows Live Writer

Windows Live Writer has been updated with a smattering of new features, usability improvements and bug fixes. The rundown:

  • Support for tagging
  • Support for the new Blogger Beta
  • Categories list fixed. It is now sorted by name, scrollable (before it was completely broken if you had too many categories and ran off the screen)
  • Faster startup
  • Can paste into the Title field
  • Can tab and shift-tab back and forth from the Title field
  • Right-click on selected text to insert link
  • Insert Link dialog has Title tag
  • Custom date support for Community Server
  • Improved keyboard shortcuts for switching between views
  • Spell check shortcut key is now F7
  • PNG included in Insert Image dialog
  • Better image uploading to Live Spaces
  • Improved blog style detection
  • Fixed issues with pasting URLs and links
  • Remembers last windows size and position
  • Retrieve more than 25 recent posts

There’s also a new section on the Windows Live Gallery for Writer plugins. Currently there are only seven listed, but they’ll get all of the many Writer plugins in there, and then all the other sites listing the plugins will watch their readership disappear.

To download the new version, just click here.
