LogJam 4.2.0 Released [Jun. 4th, 2003|08:30 pm]

We’ve finally released LogJam 4.2.0.

You can get it at the LogJam page.

What’s new?
  • Major Changes
  • Minor Additions
    • Support for DeadJournal (and other non-Unicode LJ installations).
    • Runtime selection of spellcheck language (bobuk).
    • “Smart Quotes” automatically matches Unicode quotes and apostrophes as you type.
    • and an optional SVG throbber means you get to wait for LJ in style. :P


Also, the usual pile of bug fixes (and probably new bugs!) including a fix for platforms with 64-bit pointers, a bug with custom security, and build problems on older systems (special thanks to feebdaed and decklin).

The German and Russian versions are up-to-date, thanks to Frank Hofmann and Grigory Bakunov.

Thanks to everyone, especially the people I forgot to name!

Looking to the future, I’ll hopefully try to knock off the next most popular feature you’ve requested.

Ha, figures. Every time I build something that has been out for a while (logjam 4.1.2 for Debian built against gtkhtml), a new version comes out immediately. Oh well, a new version should be in incoming in an hour or so.

Yeah, I saw that. It inspired me to make a real release. :P

Holy jebus this is the coolest logjam ever. The throbber window follows the main window!

Oh um, one little suggestion - when searching for offline entries, the interface isn't totally useful because it doesn't give you the date and/or time the entry was created, nor does it let you edit the entry from that screen. Either or both mechanisms should be included.

One more thing - the HTML preview window still isn't marked as a normal window, and it doesn't seem to open up with a sane default, so in a standards-compliant window manager like Openbox, it's impossible to resize the HTML preview window to anything bigger than whatever the default is (100x100?) unless you edit the config file.

It was supposed to be a "tool window", but then even metacity was broken on that. I'll take a patch if you're bored...

Did you read the page it linked to? I'm not sure what your question is...

I am getting this when I search my local journal: (logjam:1294): GLib-CRITICAL **: file guniprop.c: line 842 (g_utf8_strdown): assertion `str != NULL' failed

This is a glib bug right?

It means I'm passing a bad string to glib. Thankfully, I know where that function call is (because I only use it in in a few places) so I can hopefully find the problem.

Do you have any problems when you try the case-sensitive search?

Offline sync

The offline journal sync feature is nifty, but doesn't appear to record the “Preformatted” entry option. As I use this option on literally every journal entry I do (I’m a HTML/CSS nut), this is a bit of a problem for me. :)

(It’s either that, or only its absence is explicitly recorded... :D )

Ooh, that's definitely a bug. Will fix.

Although this is about as minor a bug as they come, it's probably worth mentioning that it doesn't identify itself as 4.20 in the userinfo.

It should. Is it possible that LJ hasn't acknowledged it yet? Otherwise, check the config.h in the toplevel LogJam dir and verify it has "4.2.0" for PACKAGE_VERSION, 'cause that's what is used in the network request.

Any chance of a (build-time) option to have the GUI a bit more like the 4.0 one (checkboxes on the main window for options like preformatted and security)? Was much easier to use ... even having them be in the first level of menu would be a lot easier; it's just a bit fiddly at the moment.

Could you check the select() manpage on 4.8 and see if they have any official orders the headers should be used in?

My linux manpage says that "According to earlier standards" I need sys/time.h, then sys/types.h, then unistd.h. I could probably just switch to that if that works everywhere...


Er... better, just try removing the include for sys/select.h. I don't know why it's even in there. :\

Quick Lame Question

I know this may be a lame question but I really don't feel like installing XMMS on my system since I rarely listen to mp3s. However, I do listen to CDs quite a bit using GnomeCD. Is there a way to have LogJam2 detect what I'm listening to with GnomeCD? Thanks for the response.

Re: Quick Lame Question

BTW, I just upgraded to 4.2.0 on FreeBSD 5.1-RELEASE no problem using the /usr/ports. Bout to try it out in a second. Looks great though from what I've seen of it.

I don't know if I'm the only one that feels this way (sure seems like it because nobody's brought it up until now :), but it seems rather silly to me to have the logjam dock for Gnome when it only stays active as long as the main logjam window is open. If I'm going to have the window open, I can just as easily click the window as the dock icon. I think the dock icon should behave more like the gaim dock icon. e.g. Clicking the icon brings up the main logjam window. Clicking it again removes it. Closing the main logjam window keeps logjam loaded and keeps the dock icon running.

I personally make journal updates rather infrequently, yet I like to check my friends page often. But I don't want to have a logjam window open for weeks at a time. So up until now I've been just occasionally opening up my browser and going to my friends page manually. It would be really nice if I could keep the dock loaded and checking for friends updates, while keeping both my desktop and my window list free from superfluous windows.

That's definitely the correct behavior. The dock support was just sorta tacked on for this release, and we intent to improve it in the way you mentioned.

See this thread, too.
