Live Writer 14.0.8064.206

I just recommended the new Live Writer for having a “check for updates” feature, but apparently that feature didn’t work.  From Joe Cheng of Microsoft:

Well… this is embarrassing. We just released an update that’s newer than 14.0.8050.1202. One of the two bugs it fixes, is that our “Check for updates” mechanism broke irrevocably in 14.0.8050.1202 and earlier builds. :(

If you download the new version from then “Check for updates” will work again. Sorry for the inconvenience!

So, if you aren’t at least at version 14.0.8064.206, then you should upgrade again.

Live Writer 14.0.8050.1202

livewriteraboutI just upgraded to the latest Windows Live Writer. 

It looks better and now it renders my blog template correctly.  Maybe there are more features I’m missing.

It is worth upgrading it just to get the “Check for updates” feature.  So you never again have to figure out how to upgrade it (see Jim’s rant here: Sighcrosoft – Why Can’t I Just Love Live Writer Without Confusion?).

Strangely enough, its now easy to upgrade here:

Post to Live Writer from FeedDemon

Nick Bradbury said he’ll support Live Writer natively in the next version.  And he did.  And this is what it looks like.  Cool.

Glenn Slaven has written a handy tool which enables posting to Windows Live Writer from FeedDemon.  Glenn, thanks for sharing this!

PS: I’m planning to add native Live Writer support to the next version of FeedDemon.

Windows Live Writer

I was a bit late to checking out Windows Live Writer. The reason: the Ultimate Tag Warrior plugin for WordPress. I didn’t see the point in authoring in a tool and then having to edit it in my browser.

Then I found the instructions for how to do the UTW tags from Live Writer: here.

Now I write and post all from Live Writer. Cool.
