Yes Windows Live Writer 2008 has been released. At the time of installing WLW 2008, I got a notification saying you need to update the Windows Update agent.

I did not want to run the Windows Update, so I went hunting for WUA. This is where I found the information on downloading.

If you want to download WUA directly, here are the links:

Download x86 version | Download x64 version | Download ia64 version
