I got a notification from Live Writer that it'll expire in a month and I should get a new version - but there's no new version available yet, which is silly. I suppose it'll come down with the rest of the Live wave, but this way just feels like they forgot all about it. Also - forced updates through mandatory expiration? Not cool.

Well it is a beta/tech preview, not a final release, so forced updates/expiration aint that bad really.
