WLW developer Joe Cheng has the details on what’s in this new release.
I’d installed the fix for that issue but still encountered problems. To try and troubleshoot further, I’d disabled the plugin with the unwelcome result of seeing an immediate and ongoing increase in blog spam that actually made it to the blog although all trapped by Akismet.
Also fixed is an issue I experienced with publishing a post containing an image.
I’ll post more about WLW beta if I encounter any further issues.
This beta is apparently the last beta before the final version is released.
