Windows Live Writer Technical Preview

Today Windows Live Writer released a technical preview that includes new and improved features.

From what I’ve seen so far, I like:

  • Revised main toolbar: Blog selection, help and colorize are now on the right.
  • Excel like tabs for view switching. No more selecting a drop down menu to select a view.
  • Improved category control with search/filtering.

I don’t like:

  • Having a predefined set of languages for spell checking. And Portuguese is not one of them.
  • It’s still a pain to change the the language for spell checking.
  • There’s no predefined language setting for each account.
