A preview of what's to come...

Thinking of UI enhancements, I added the Xpostulate little icon thingy right into the GUI.

What do you think?

Other items on their way:

  • Posterous support. I have interacted with the posterous api via bash with curl, so, just need to translate my scripting for that to tcl with http. Cake, but requires time. I thought I would have that done this past week, but, no joy...too much work (somebody's gotta pay the rent around here).
  • Blogger support. - The great and benevolent Google® has granted me an API key, and I have looked at the API, but not yet played with it, but this is likely to come this season...soon, me dro0gies.

  • Read your statusnet public timeline or updates from a specific person. This I have, again, done in bash, so just a matter of coding it into tcl. Although, I question if this is appropriate for Xpostulate, and whether it might not be better to do this with iDenTickles only, since iDenTickles is a microblogging client, and Xpostulate is intended for crossposting to blogs, not reading others' updates.

  • Download, edit, & republish older entries. This is on my todo list, but for each blogging service I have to look at how their API handles this, and then code stuff in, and develop new GUI elements for housing various functions, and blah, blah, blah. It will be work..heavy lifting...but it's on my TODO list.

A question and a user interface bug.

First, the question - any idea when the .021 windows installer will be up?

Second, the bug - I can't figure out how to set preferences in my ASUS EEE with a 1024x600 screen. I'm running Win7 Starter. When I open the preferences window, the last line I can see is "Tb blogname, Tb password". Somewhere past that there must be a Save button, but I can't get to it. I tried tabbing, and maximizing the window, but neither of them did me any good.

Oh, that's interesting. Just clicking on the X in the upper right-hand corner to close the window did an unprompted save. While I like the fact that my preferences are now saved, I do not especially like that behavior - what if I want to abandon my changes in the future? Which I could easily see - if I'm fiddling around with colors, I could easily want to make a bunch of changes, and then back them out.
