CVS ChangeLog:
- Nonblocking connect. Now only gethostbyname() blocks.
- Summary added to friends view.

To post using LoserJabber from vim:
- install LoserJabber in to the path
- set up your account in the identities (optional)
- type your post in vim
- run this vim command: %!lj -u username -
(you'll need to add your password if you skipped step 2.)
- the output will appear in your buffer.

I'm sure you could do something similar with emacs...

Re: a few things...

if you want a livejournal client that works from the command line without any need for X to be present at all, go download my Perl client from the download page....

Re: a few things...

That is what I use now, when I need to update without any GUI support (i.e. no web browser, and no GUI LJ Client). However, I figured if Evan was adding command-line support, he should either make it 100% command-line... or just make the command line options help the GUI out (auto-login) prefilled, buffer waiting for a "SUBMIT" etc. But the way the command line options work now, are just like a command line only tool. They login, submit, logout, and exit. So... I figured if that were the case, he may as well make X unrequired when using command line options, don't you think?

Re: a few things...

well, the way the code's organized, that may be difficult.

once he calls gtk_init or whatever, X is required ... his networking code creates windows and stuff. i guess he could that out, but the binary is linked with the gtk libraries I believe, which means he'd need a separate binary to be distributed if it were to be totally non-X.
