Version 0.5: first beta released

Submitted by Matthew Smith on Sat, 2007-03-10 23:11

A first beta of version 0.5 has been released. This contains two new features:

(a) the ability to do QuickPosts based on custom templates. At present, this offers two place-holders, for the URL of the blogged article and for its title; more may be added in the future. So a post will be prepared with these two items where you want them (or not there, if you so specify) which you can edit as you wish, and then post (b) the ability to specify trackback pings, via a new page on the left sidebar. This, of course, only works if your blogging engine supports it, as MT does.

And there are two bug fixes:

(a) the app used to die sometimes when closing the preferences window. This is because it was trying to access the system-tray icon, but could not find it (for those who know C++, because of a pointer which was supposed to point to the STI, but in fact pointed nowhere). (b) the app now quits when Quit is chosen from the STI on the Mac.

Downloads are available from SourceForge. David Watzke has made a Gentoo ebuild available; see his overlay.
