Microsoft betas blog authoring tool – Windows Live Writer

Posted by David Hunter at 6:52 PM ET.

The Onfolio crew have been busy since being acquired by Microsoft. Not only has the Onfolio news reader and research tool become part of the Windows Live Tool Bar which shipped last month, but now they have introduced a beta of Windows Live Writer, a WYSIWYG blog posting tool. It seems to be a worthwhile enhancement of the blog posting capability that had originally been in Onfolio. You can download a copy here.

There are more details at the new Windows Live Writer team blog, Inside Microsoft, and LiveSide which also has an interview with J.J. Allaire, the Architect for Windows Live Writer.

This post was originally created with Windows Live Writer, but required some modification before publishing. That’s not a knock on Windows Live Writer as none of the various standalone blog authoring tools do everything I need.
