Version 0.4.0 released

Version 0.4 of QTM has been released - earlier than I'd expected and with a different new feature to the one I'd planned: namely, QuickPost.

QuickPost enables you to post a new entry based on material copied from the clipboard or the X11 mouse selection. To copy from the clipboard, you need to select the material, which may be a web location or a block of text, and then activate the system-tray icon by either double-clicking it (if you are using text transferred to the clipboard using Cut or Copy) or clicking it once with the middle mouse button (often the mouse wheel) if you are simply using the X11 mouse selection. If the item is text, it will simply make a new entry out of it, to which you can add or change what you like. If it's an URL, QTM will fetch the web page and extract its title. There is also a new icon, which I designed for one of the binary releases of the last version to get round a transparency issue; it's now standard on all X11 platforms.

QuickPost only benefits Qt 4.2 users; however, I've also got rid of the console echoes the program was doing when it was performing network actions. (I mean QTM's own, not those produced by Qt.) The source, as ever, can be downloaded from SourceForge.

I'm still working (from time to time!) on the multiple blog accounts I had promised for 0.4. That will form release 0.5 now - I have plans for QuickPost as well, and thought it too big to just make it another incremental 0.3 release. Downloads are available from SourceForge and KDE Apps (see right).
