You can download and install the latest release from http://www.openlivewriter.org.

This release contains two major new features, spellchecking and categories for Google Blogger!

For spellchecking to work you'll need to have Windows 8 or newer installed (Windows 7 does not have spellchecking support) and you’ll need to install your preferred input language in Windows to enable spellchecking in that language. Only one language can be spellchecked in Writer at a time, but you can change the language at any time by going to File > Options > Spelling and choosing a new dictionary language.

Google Blogger categories will automatically populate for easy tagging of your blog posts. In addition to categories, there are several other Google Blogger bug fixes in this release. The most notable issues were time zone differences causing scheduled posts to be scheduled at the incorrect time, failing to open drafts that were posted to Blogger, and failing to download and open posts from Blogger that are older than your most recent 500 posts.

Special thanks to our contributors for this release:
