Open Live Writer (aka Windows Live Writer)

This is the first post I’ve done using Open Live Writer (OLW). With the release 0.5.1.2 there is support for Blogger after Google updated their API to use OAuth 2 and thus breaking the functionality in the old Windows Live Writer and the initial release of OLW. The error was: Blogger returned the following error: NotFound: Not Found.

A known issue with this release is that labels/categories can’t be set when posting to Blogger.

For some background on how Microsoft’s WLW became Open Source OLW see the Announcing Open Live Writer - An Open Source Fork of Windows Live Writer post by Hanselman.
