I've really enjoyed Windows Live Writer, an off-line blog editor that does just about everything I could ever ask. But just today I was wondering when it was going to be updated. The version I'm working with has been out for quite a while. Like everyone else, I want my free apps updated regularly.
As it happened, today Microsoft released version 2.0 of Live Writer. You can read about it here but below are the improvements from the site.
