Live Writer Beta 2 has new features, including:
[But where are the cell borders I asked for?]
|Support for pictures in Community Server (without having to load the Community Server Gallery plugin)|
Plus the expected support for multiple languages, more help, more options and a speling cheker.
This makes it substantially easier for me to write my blog entries offline – now all I need to do is find some time offline, as well as a few clip-art images to use.
[If you're wondering why I'm happy to be offline, consider that it gets really slow to preview your work when you have to go online just to insert a graphic, and that it's difficult to remain online if you're on a bus.]
I have only been using Live Writer Beta 2 for a few minutes, and I can already say it feels quick and light, perfect for the way I blog. Time will tell if it eventually gets weighed down with too many features, online requirements and so on to be of any use.
