Sign in to queue


The Windows Live journey continues today with new versions of three sweet little apps. Windows Live Writer gets a great UI refresh and increased support for Spaces, Wordpress, and Typepad using the Provider Customization API. The most complete walkthrough of Windows Live Writer upgrades comes from Scott at Liveside. The Windows Live Messenger upgrade brings it in line with the new Live UI, and the full expose of updates comes from Nicole on the Messenger team Space. Last but not least, Windows Live Mail wraps up the Live desktop upgrade. POP and IMAP accounts are now supported as well as a cleaner summary view for contacts. The full rundown of enhancements is brought to us by Tanja on the Live Mail team Space.

    I have been waiting for this updated version of Windows Live Writer for quite a while, and it is well worth the wait. I was beginning to wonder about the status of Windows Live Writer - the blog had been inactive since November.

    The WLW team has been busy, the new interface, features and functionality are pretty impressive.

    I wrote a post about my first impressions of working with the program ,but I will admit, the walk through by Scott is very well done, and very thorough - Good Job!
