Just over a week ago Scott Hanselman dropped the news that an open source version of the popular Windows Live Writer blogging application has finally been released. The Windows Live Writer application has been a popular publishing platform for years, but has not been updated since 2012. Earlier this year Hanselman ignited the communities interest by tweeting that talks were under way to open source the app.
The application is still “old” compared to 2015 standards… but now that it is open source, I’m confident the community is going to run with it. Just in the past week the authentication for the popular Blogger service has been updated to work with the OAuth 2.0 spec.
