I've just released a new bug fix version of QTM: version 1.3.14. This contains one fix, which is a workaround for problems in Wordpress where the Social plugin is installed, which was preventing categories being assigned to an entry. It now posts it as a draft and publishes when that's done and the categories are set. (The same had been the case on Movable Type.)
Binaries are avaiable from the green box on the right for Windows and the Mac, and from the usual repositories for OpenSUSE and Fedora Linux. I have submitted packages for Ubuntu, but they have not been processed and there seems to be a glitch on their system which I have submitted a bug report for.
I've just put out a new version of QTM: version 1.3.13. The main new feature this time is that it's Qt 5 ready. Qt 5 compiles and runs fine on Linux (X11) and can be made to work on Windows (the tool-chain has changed on Windows so it's a bit more complicated). Sadly, on the Mac, some functionality QTM relies on in Qt 4 has not been updated for Qt 5 yet, so you'll still need Qt 4 on the Mac. However, the downloads for Windows still use Qt 4 as Qt 5 is a bit rough around the edges. There is no functionality in QTM that requires Qt 5.
Also, there are a couple of bug fixes. The main fix is that, when you post an entry and it fails (because you had the wrong password, for example), it no longer declares the entry posted -- which means when you correct the problem, it will now be able to post it properly.Read more »
I've just released yet another new version of QTM - this version contains two crash bug fixes which seem to be related to the changes in the last edition, so it's a strongly recommended update on all platforms (two of them affect the Mac, one affects all platforms). The other main change is an internal one, namely that there is now a menu bar class based on the one I used for the Mac "supermenu" (the one that you could see when there were no windows open). As a result, the executable is slightly smaller than on the old version.Read more »
I have just released version 1.3.11 of QTM. This was originally going to be a Mac-only release, but while readying that for release I made a number of bug fixes and minor user interface improvements. If you're on the Mac you'll notice that the menu that appears when you start up QTM has more entries; this was to get rid of entries disappearing from the program menu when you closed all the open windows. There are also some bug fixes and user-interface improvements that affect all platforms: shortcuts for closing a window, undo and redo, and formatting properly when you paste as a Markdown blockquote.
Source downloads are available in the box on the right, and binaries have been built for OpenSUSE, Fedora, Mac OS X and Windows; Ubuntu binaries are being built (they may be available by the time you read this). Full changelog is here.
I've just released another version of QTM - version 1.3.10 is a bug-fix release, the biggest one being for new users who find that the category choosing widgets are greyed-out when they first use the program. That's gone now. The full list of changes (all three of them) is here.
Source downloads and Windows and Mac binaries are already available from the green box below right. Binaries for Ubuntu, OpenSUSE and Fedora have been submitted to their respective build systems and should be available by the time you read this. See Downloading from a Repository for more details.
I have just released version 1.3.9 of QTM. This adds one new feature: the ability to set margins and borders when inserting an image into an entry (something I do a lot and had to do by hand up until now). This release is relevant to all platforms; source releases are available from the green box on the right, while binaries for Ubuntu are building right now and should be available shortly through the Launchpad package archive system (see the download instructions here). I expect to get binaries for the Mac and other versions of Linux built tomorrow; Windows binaries will have to wait a bit because my laptop has broken down. Update: Windows binaries are now available; see the installer link on in the column on the right.
I have released a minor update for QTM which only affects Mac users. This simply allows access to recent entries and preferences from the global menu (the menu bar that appears at startup or when no windows are present). The first was for completeness's sake and the second to get round a bug in the Mac version of Qt (that caused the Preferences menu entry to remain visible after all windows had closed, but it did nothing when selected). Binary downloads for the Mac, as well as new source bundles, are available from the Downloads box on the right.
I've just released version 1.3.7, which improves usability on Ubuntu's unity (allowing the opening of recent files and quickpost templates from the Unity launcher, rather than the now-hidden system tray icon), and fixes a bug that stopped the "recent files" menu working properly on the Mac. Since these changes only affect Mac and Ubuntu users, I will be releasing binary packages only for those platforms (i.e. none for Windows, Fedora or SUSE as it has no changes over version 1.3.6 for those platforms). Source packages and a Mac disc image are available from the downloads box on the right; binaries for Ubuntu are building and should be available through my PPA later on today (if you already have it installed, it should update automatically; if not, please see the page about downloading from a repository).
I have released version 1.3.6 of QTM. The main features this time round are user interface adjustments relating to releasing it for the Mac, which has become possible for me again but was a bit more difficult than I had expected due to some bugs in Qt (which also affect Nokia's own development tools). Older versions had the new-style unified title and toolbar; that had to go so as to stop each new window being smaller than the last. I've also moved the upload progress bar, and a hidden button in the bottom status bar, into the side panel.Read more »
Well, by today I had hoped to be able to release a Mac OS X release of QTM. It's been a few years and several releases, but sadly I had to retire my old Mac and Nokia decided to migrate Qt to Cocoa (the Objective-C interface to Mac OS X, as opposed to the C-based Carbon that had been used before), sacrificing compatibility with PowerPC and older versions of Mac OS X in the process. I now have a new Mac mini, and have compiled a copy of QTM using a newer version of Qt.Read more »
