Windows Live Writer is a fantastic offline blogging tool with a WYSIWYG editor. It interfaces with just about any blog service [Blogger, LiveJournal, TypePad, WordPress, etc.] If you're a blogger you'll find this tool incredibly helpful- and it's refreshingly free from Microsoft.
Microsoft just pushed out a Windows Live Essentials update and Windows Live Writer was included with that update; pushing Windows Live Writer to the fresh new version of v15 [15.4.3538.513], but in typical Microsoft fashion they offer no ‘WHAT’S NEW’ file, or information page, to clarify what was actually updated.
I’m not understanding how or why Microsoft can’t offer any information as to what they changed or what they updated… where do you find this information?
I would suspect that most IT shops need this information for audit reasons, but I never see it. I’m not able to find it on any blogs from Microsoft; it’s just not something that I find in the open from Microsoft…
Anyway, Microsoft pushed a new version of Windows Live Writer.
If not already, download the latest version...
