logjam 4.1.0 [Apr. 7th, 2003|03:15 pm]
LogJam 4.1.0 has been released.
Visit the LogJam page to download it.

  • Draft support-- save drafts of entries, edit them, and post them later.
  • HTML preview of your post.
  • Support a command for retrieving music, allowing LogJam to work with music systems other than XMMS. Also include a button that diagnoses why LogJam might be having trouble detecting your music (I get a lot of bug reports about this...).
  • Checkfriends can check a subset of your friends list, using friend groups.
  • "remote" support lets you run one LogJam and pop it up whenever you need it.
  • Support for LiveJournal tags: <lj user="foo"> and <lj-cut>.
  • UI improvements:
    • Better GNOME Human Interface Guidelines compliance-- we're not a GNOME program, but it's good for consistency with other apps.
    • Better keyboard navigation, including saving your custom accelerators and Esc/Return cancelling and OK'ing the relevant dialogs.
    • Menu reorganization
  • A lot of translation work, including some important bugfixes that were preventing translation for some. New Ukranian translation. See the translations page for details.
  • Better Windows support. (This may not work right, yet.)
    • Use Windows-configured browser for links.
    • Windows-configured proxy settings and network code.
    • Build using MinGW/MSYS so there's no Makefile hacking.
  • And, as usual, a huge pile of bugfixes.

The configuration format has changed (hopefully for the last time) to support saving drafts. You'll need to enter your username/password again.

Thanks to everyone who helped out on this release!

RPMs for Red Hat Linux 9 are built and posted.

Not to bug you or anything:

Do you know if the RPMs will work on Redhat 7.2? It's been a year since I upgraded my kernel, and I'm not really looking forward to the task.

Umm, the binary rpms definitely won't work on RHL 7.2. You should be able to download the src.rpms for gtkspell and logjam, then rpmbuild --rebuild them both (gtkspell first, install the binary rpm generated, then logjam).

I don't have any 7.2 boxes anymore, upgraded everything to 9 when I rebuilt my lan.

Ok. I'll definitely try the src rpms first, then: gtkspell, followed by logjam.

Thanks again!

Out of curiosity, who maintains the Debian packages?

Debian packages have been uploaded, along with this patch.

Also, I changed line 216 of livejournal-types.c to use %ud instead of %ld, as per the compile warning.

I appreciate your care, but I don't really want to support a patch I haven't reviewed.

I guess I'll point bug reporters at the Debian page. *shrug*

Debian bug reports should go into the debian bug tracking system anyway..

LogJam <Defunct>

When running log jam (and friend checking) I'm getting a bunch of processes saying:
5887 ? 00:00:00 logjam

My guess is a new process is created each time logjam checks my friends page, but I'm not sure.

2¢: I liked it the other way.

For what it's worth, I preferred it when I could see, at a glance, whether the entry I was working on was set to be Public or not, what userpic it was using, make sure "preformatted" was checked, etc. Now I have to run through the menus to see all that.

Re: 2¢: I liked it the other way.

Me too. The absence of those boxes in LogJam 4.1 is really getting to me, because I like messing with those settings and I don't want to go through the menus four or five times per post to do it.
