As I’ve written a lot in the past about Windows Live Writer, it’d be remiss of me to not mention that an open source fork is now available. I blogged briefly about this back in June of this year, and it’s great to see that it has finally happened.
The current version is dubbed “0.5”, so may not be stable for use by everyone, but it seems fine to me so far. This release seems to be mostly about tidying things up by removing outdated functionality, and simply getting a release out (version 0.5 sucks, ship it anyway), but there’s some exciting stuff in the roadmap.
As a long time Windows Live Writer user, this makes me very happy! Thanks to everyone who worked on this, as it clearly took a lot of organising and collaboration.
