Tonight the Windows Live Writer team announced the release of WLW 2009 Release Candidate.
It’s part of the Windows Live Essentials that includes also MSN Messenger and some other “Live” stuff.
The good news is that now the install kit doesn’t check for the OS anymore, or, at least, they include Windows 2008 among the allowed OS (even if the system requirements don’t list it as supported platform).
The new version includes a new icon (shown here on the left), and fixed the usability issue I reported one month ago: now the right sidebar scrolls and works even on my small 1280x800 screen size.
The new version includes some bugfixes and new features: for more info read the official announcement.
