SDK Updates
This release is largely about updates to the Writer SDK, which now includes hooks for pre- and post-publish events. These updates are still experimental and these APIs are not stable--we may make changes based on your feedback that break plug-ins that use these new methods. However, we're really excited about the new set of scenarios have been unlocked and look forward to hearing feedback from all of you Writer plug-in developers out there.

For more details about the SDK, please see the blog post on Windows Live Dev.

I am, but it's so much easier to just type **** and click a button than it is to login to my site, type, update it, and wait a variable amount of time between steps depending on net congestion. With Live Writer I can also save stuff that maybe I'm not finished with and get back to it later without losing what I've written or posting it prematurely. I also love the UI. If Wordpad looked like Live Writer, had tabs and had a few more simple features like spelling/grammar check (or was extensible like Firefox ) I wouldn't even need to install Word!
