Lots of stuff has happened, most notably the explosion of LiveJournal's popularity, making everything slow until Brad gets another few thousand dollars together to buy a second server.
In personal news, I'm back at school, and I just installed Linux on my faster machine (Athlon 800). Development is now faster. :)
LoserJabber is almost ready for a 2.0 release. From there, I plan to make some changes of a more major nature, such as:
- a different interface to history, using GTK's calendar
- offline editing of journal entries
- GNOME applet support?
I encourage any of you interested in the development of LiveJournal to join the LiveJournal mailing lists.
- A bunch of changes I forgot to log.
- Dynamically link to XMMS libs, allowing binaries compiled with XMMS
support to run on systems without XMMS.
- Major metadata redesigns -- metadata in history!
- Go to http://www.livejournal.com/users/username instead of
http://username.livejournal.com to support non-paying users.
- Handle the HTTP 500 server errors that have been happening lately.
Like I said in the README: it's difficult to test how LoserJabber
handles error conditions! :P
I should also note that post security options are disabled until I finish my new implementation...
