There’s a new version of the blogging application Windows Live Writer. Currently in the ‘Technical Preview’ stage, there’s a bunch of new features:

  • Tabbed views – Edit / Preview / Source
  • Image cropping and rotating (can’t use this if you copy + paste an image into a post, only insert).
  • Categories are also now searchable.
  • Word count
  • Insert Video upgraded, allows for upload from local machine (to SoapBox).
  • New image effects:

Reflection, Rounded Corners, Border

Update: I’ve had some problems with the new image effects not displaying correctly on the blog. The image above is a screen shot of how it appears in Live Writer, rather than the about screen with the effect applied.
