OpenLiveWriter.org Website

Roadmap

You can find the roadmap for the Open Live Writer product here.

For the website, we are initially focussed on getting a fast, lightweight product homepage set up. Then we want to increase the end user help content to assist people using Open Live Writer. Developer documentation should live alongside the code.
