Project Centennial apps are x86 only, but offer improvements in installation, security and can be enhanced with features such as Live Tiles and Notifications.
For now if you want to get Open Live Writer, you can get it here, and you can also find its GitHub repository here. We’ll update this post with the actual Store download link when it becomes available.
Update: Now here.
The description reads:
