Release Notes

Minor update. Added brushes for F#, PowerShell and Erlang.

Now a Windows Presentation Framework (WPF) application. ComponentFactory.Krypton.Toolkit had font scaling issues in Windows 7 and so the dependency on this component was removed. This version requires .Net 3.5 sp1. Get SyntaxHighlighter from .

Note: Stay with stable release 4.0.3 if you do not want to update to the WPF version of this application.

The only one I found that works for Live Writer 2012.

Excellent - much better than the other syntax plug-ins I have seen. Love the desktop version as well.

Never heard of Precode before. But used SyntaxHighlighter2 on my blog and I often post code on stackoverflow. This app makes the life of a developer better :)

This is awesome! One plug-in that always works for me.

You rock! I had created my own WLW plugin that did basically the same thing (fixed indentation, normalized tabs/spacing, htmlencoded, etc) but I didn't bother to implement a nice UI. I'm switching to your plugin. One suggestion... how about defaulting to the clipboard text?
