A partial port to Apple's OS X, as well as to Linux, may be possible, the group added, but would require significant time and effort by volunteers since much of the code relies on Windows-specific APIs (application programming interfaces).
The Open Live Writer roadmap has been posted to GitHub. By the 1.0 release, the group hopes to add support for the TypePad and LiveJournal blogging platforms.
Open Live Writer can be run side-by-side the original Windows Live Writer 2012. The latter can still be downloaded from Microsoft's website as part of Windows Essentials.
