Hi,

Have you tried Blog Desk?

Maybe try Drupal and see if it meets your requirements: http://download.cnet.com/Drupal/3000-12945_4-10332228.html

You could just use Windows Live Writer and have it publish remotely to a WordPress site:

I am using live writer and aware of its usage, as there is no updated plugins developed for it I am not able to publish properly formatted powershell script on blog post.
So, I am looking for some alternative which is latest and greatest application which also supports wide extensibility by using plugins.

Blog Desk is a very old fashioned application and does not even come close to live writer when compaired with usablility and functionality.

Durpal is a different species, its not a client to publish blogs on wordpress.com

Yeah, I don't know of all that many tools that integrate with another publishing platform and bypass the internal editor.  Generally speaking, you would want to spend time and energy modifying the editor that ships with the blogging platform to make it do what you want instead of finding a way to bypass it.

If publishing formatted code is your only requirement, there are plugins that assist with that.  If you don't like TinyMCE, there are a few plugins that change it/replace it within WordPress.

As I am using free wordpress site from wordpress.com and have no much controller on apps.
I was looking for something better than windows live editor, had no options other than that and ended up using windows live editor.
