Windows Live Writer Has Been Open Sourced!

This is good news.  Windows Live Writer, my blog editor of choice, is now open source!  Rechristened Open Live Writer, it has moved to the .NET Foundation briskly as a 0.5 version… I want to imagine this is to prevent its death in a closet at Microsoft but you can read all the details at the release instead.

It has been on life support for about 3 years and its still one of the very few Windows must installs for me.  Some highlights include best offline post writing available and seamless integration with WordPress.  It will be refreshing to see Live Writer Open Live Writer be further developed after so long.  Neat.
