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.
