LogJam 4.0.0 has been released.

http://logjam.danga.com/download/logjam-4.0.0.tar.gz

Major changes from 3.x:
  • Pretty significant rewrites of a lot of code. Much more stable (for me, at least!).
  • Now depends on GTK2.
  • Internationalized; currently we support US English, British English ("colour" :P), Russian, and Hebrew.
  • (Microsoft) Windows support.
  • A lot of new features, with particular thanks to gaal:
    • Checkfriends support (flashing icon when your friends list changes).
    • Poll creator.
    • (What else? I haven't used 3.x in what feels like years.)


Installation notes:
  • You need autoconf 2.5x+ and automake >= 1.4. Both of these are more recent branches of these projects, but their use is pretty widespread.
  • If at all possible, use the GTK2 provided by your distribution maker. GTK2 is a complicated beast and may be painful to install manually.


What I would like from you:

what ever happened to stabilizing draft support, and undo?

I've been putting off release for months, now. I can make more releases later.

But if you have any last-minute draft comments, I'm all ears.

GTK2

> Now depends on GTK2

Which stops me using it. Oh well, I tend to use the web interface most of the time anyway...

Re: GTK2

Any particular opposition to GTK2, or just a reluctance to switch?

compile

After fixing up a few library problems, everything compiled nicely. Thanks :) This is IMHO the best lj client.

Had no problems building it as a .deb on my system, although I don't really notice any difference between it and 3.1.0 from CVS, yet?

Ohwell, it's nicer than the old release, still. ;-)

This is just the version from CVS, renamed to a new major version because of the GTK2 dependency.

I'm using a generic Debian Woody install, so some of my libraries may be a bit out of date. However, the poll creator segfaults instead of actually generating anything. I've tried several different options, and it doesn't seem to be just one combination. Invalid polls will are rejected correctly,

Can you send a backtrace?

A suggestion came up in reading various journals - bring back the old 3.x behavior of pressing ctrl-enter to post, perhaps as an option?

Oh yeah... I actually have this comment in the source:

    /* fixme gtk2; this would submit the entry when you hit ctl-enter
    g_signal_connect(G_OBJECT(ljw->eentry), "activate",
        G_CALLBACK(submit_entry), ljw);*/


It doesn't work anymore because of the new text widget but I haven't spent the time to figure out how to make it work again. It should only be a few minutes when I get the chance.

bunny:~/projects/logjam/logjam/src% grep -i 'fixme\|xxx' *.c *.h | wc -l
     47


Damn. :P

Okay, I just compiled and installed Logjam. However, I somehow missed the step that lets me get music auto-detection from XMMS, which I had just fine in 3.03. Therefore, what would I need to do to get XMMS support in Logjam, exactly?

Hmm... when you run configure, it prints out whether it's linking with XMMS in the last few lines. If it isn't, you can scroll back and see if there was an error message while detecting XMMS.

Lemme know what you find or if I can be of more help...

Unicode Support

Would it be possible, for the next version, to make a check box, turning unicode support on and off?

Dead journal doesn't work with unicode.

Re: Unicode Support

GTK2 (and so LogJam) uses Unicode internally, so the only way to support something like DeadJournal would be to recode the text into some other encoding before sending it to the server. But what encoding do you want?

CSV Save Suggestion

Okay, so I don't knwo where this should go, so I'm going to put it here. My ideas:

Save should keep time with it, unless now is selected.
On posting, there should be a backup of the post created.
When you save and close, the next time you open up logjam there should be a blank entry.
Set auto-recover to write every so often.
Allow the user to specify the journal site they want, rather than having them change the config file.

Have fun, and thanks for listening.

Re: CSV Save Suggestion

That's a bug! Thanks for reporting it. I think I've fixed it.

On posting, there should be a backup of the post created.
Where would the backup go?

When you save and close, the next time you open up logjam there should be a blank entry.
Set auto-recover to write every so often.

Both of these are how LogJam should operate. Is it not happening for you?

Allow the user to specify the journal site they want, rather than having them change the config file.
I'll work on it.
