LogJam 4.1.2 [Apr. 29th, 2003|02:49 pm]

LogJam 4.1.2 has been released.
Visit the LogJam page to download it.

Changes from 4.1.2:

  • The big change is a code reorganization that allows better management of entries. Loading entries from the command line, saving entries you're working on, and the dialogs related to working with drafts in general should now work much better.
  • Properly clean up network requests so we don't leave zombies around.
  • German translation.
  • Add a "-n / --no-login" command line, to be used with "-u" to let you create launchers for LogJam that start in your journal.
  • And, as usual, a pile of minor bug fixes.

Whoops. I edited an older post to do this one and I didn't fix the date.

Uploading to unstable now, since it fixes that annoying wait()ing error. Hopefully gtkhtml3.0 will go into unstable sometime before I die so that I won't have to maintain versions for separate distributions.

External editor

About the first point: Does this mean that the facilities for using external editors in LogJam will get better. It would be nice if you could launch an external editor from LogJam.

Re: External editor

It could be done. Which editor were you thinking about?
(VIM is already capable of being embedded...</a>)

That really happens to be the editor I was thinking about.

Unfortunately, I think it requires GNOME and it's not quite finished, yet.

logjam --edit
used to spawn VIM before loading LogJam, but I broke it and I'm not sure how useful it is.

The --edit functionality was pretty broken to begin with, as it requires LogJam from an xterm.

Wouldn't a more generic method using a format string and a temporary string be better? That method would be far easier to extend to work with other editors.

gentoo user:

the ebuild is in portage, but i can't automatically login a user...is this not a part of this release or is it because of the way the ebuild compiled the program? or am i missing it? how can i make it automatically log me in?

One way...

From command line, do:

logjam -u carrett -p yourpass

Obviously, you could make a script that did this every time. But you then have to have your pass as plaintext in a file. Yuck.

Re: One way...

Well, your password has to be in a plaintext form *somewhere* for logjam to be able to log you in...

If you've logged a user in before and had logjam save their password, you can just do logjam -u user and it'll autologin as well.

Thank you!

I've been using Logjam since 3.0 something... Ever since the web client ate an entry, and I've not gone back :)

I only noticed 4.1.2 yesterday, and mostly it's another smooth upgrade, removing bugs and adding new features. Yay!

My one significant gripe is the change to the display of custom security. Perhaps there's a compile option, but there's no display of what security setting the entry will be posted as. I have to check this through a menu.

I much preferred the older, button-by-subject behaviour (4.0?). It would be very easy to forget what security I was posting as. Being able to hotkey and thus change security setting quickly is nice, but there's no feedback to show if I changed it correctly.

Re: Thank you!

Yeah, I've never been too happy with the way it worked. I'm thinking of copying Evolution's design, but I'm not sure...

Re: Thank you!

But I only just changed from Evolution to Slypheed-claws! ;)

Evolution does look okay though... Even though I eventually got sick of its restrictive preferences, the interface looks nice.

Perhaps a Security button would fit next to the current Using Journal button? I like a nice big Logjam window, so that would work for me.

It must be hell trying to please all the users all of the time... Good luck and thanks for listening :)

Re: Thank you!

Oh, and thanks for the compliments.
The next version is awesome-- journal export with full-text searching.
