Get it at
Changes since 3.0.0:
- LiveJournal console.
- Link dialog now has an itemid field.
- Fastserver cookie for paid users.
- Localization fix. Should work with Cyrllic now? (Michael Bravo)
- Automake fixes. (Ari Pollak)
- Typo in configure.in when detecting curl. (Steve Bernacki, Jr.)
- Use snprintf when building unknown-length strings. (Raja Mukerji)
- Set file permissions on rcfile containing passwords.
And of course, a lot of bug fixes.
I don't think cancelling network requests really works, but I'm not in the mood to work on it right now.
Have you considered making GNOME and non-GNOME debs? I don't want to repeat work, but at least a few people I know still use my debs
since there's a GNOME version (including myself).
mine are GNOME versions. I didn't know you had debs available, I've been making them since the LoserJabber mantainer stopped maintaining the packages.
Oh, okay. I would recommend splitting into GNOME and non-GNOME even more then (there's probably more people who insist on a non-GNOME version than would insist on a GNOME version), but I'll probably switch to yours, then.
Eh. considering the existing LoserJabber maintainer is already pissed at me for making these for some reason, It's not worth my time to go making two different versions. Granted, it's probably very easy to split it, I just don't have any reason to. I make .debs for my own usage, and if they're clean enough, I give them to the public.. if they use it, great. If not, oh well.

And LogJam was written on a Debian system; it's not too hard to compile.
I use the following command to "install" a new version of LogJam:
sudo cp ./logjam `which logjam`
Yeah, for CVS I sometimes do that.. Gaim I don't even bother making debs for, because they update so much & so often in CVS.
Oh, okay, I thought the intention was that yours were going to be entering unstable.
I know there's at least one official Debian Developer who uses LJ (decklin), and there's probably more. Would an NMU maybe be in order? It's not like there are substantial (any) changes to be made to a packaging setup between 2.1.5 and 3.0.x (there wasn't for me, at least), and the existing version is 9 months old.
And yeah, I encountered a degree of hostility when I started making my packages, too.

Oh, no, no hostility! It had just hurt his feelings, because it had implied he wasn't good enough without me saying anything to him directly.
I mailed him about it, anyway.
