New Version of WLW Available

Update:
It is most likely that I found a bug in this version. I checked the option “check spelling before publishing” in Options – Spelling. It seems to work but the final article posted on my weblog is the same. All the error spellings are left untouched. That’s strange.

Writer Zone released the latest technical preview of Windows Live Writer.

I’ve been looking forward to it for so long, cos WLW is like the most convenient blog-writing tool I’ve ever used.

Here are the new features with snapshots:

Video and Image Publishing Enhancements
  • Upload videos to Soapbox (It’s kinda weird that I can’t find the related-option…)
  • Image cropping and tilting (still, only for local pictures)
  • Additional border styles (same as above)
  • Support for LightBox and other image previewing effects (like Slimbox, Smoothbox, and others) (local files only)
  • Support for centering images (oh yeah, that’s it! I’m wondering why it is not supported in former versions)

Editing Enhancements
  • Auto Linking (really useful)
  • Smart quotes/typographic characters
  • Word count (helpful for serious writer ^^)

UI Improvements
  • Revised main toolbar
  • Tabs for view switching
  • Improved category control with search/filtering

this handy tool to make your blogging easy!
