Today we are shipping an update to Beta 1 of Windows Live Writer. Highlights include:
- A new tagging feature which supports a handful of tagging services (and is user extensible to support additional services).
- Support for the latest version of Blogger (Blogger Beta).
- We fixed the top 20 customer issues/bugs to smooth out some early rough edges.
- Writer now has its own space on Windows Live Gallery where a bunch of 3rd party extensions are available (with more to come). Highlights include “Blog This” extensions for both IE and Firefox as well as a Flickr plugin.
- An Event plugin that we developed in collaboration with Eventful. This plugin highlights Writer’s ability to publish microformats and to use Live Clipboard to flexibly translate structured data into presentation.
