New Windows Live Writer – tech preview ads a bunch of new features

    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.
