checkfriends support

Protocol support for friends polling is done. Docs are here.

Evan's already got a nifty Gnome panel applet thing mostly working ... I told him I'd implement protocol support today if he wrote the panel applet today. That bitch beat me by several hours. :-) Now he's just gotta add a few lines and we'll have the first working friends checker.....

Let me know if anybody adds support to other clients... I'll add it to the feature matrix on the download page.

LJ::Client 0.2.99. This is what became of a modularization of the LJ sync script and brad's original Perl client (with subject, security, and alternate journal support added). It has three test programs, for syncing, posting, or logging in.

Please see the README and TODO files included with it.

Obviously, it's far from done. But I wanted to get the cleaned up version of the sync stuff out.

Client Update Notification?

I was thinking that it might be interesting to notify users when a newer version of the client they use most becomes available. This could fall under the "Send me LiveJournal News" opt-out that people set up when they first logged in or a new opt-out (we can use the existing one as a guideline).

The only reason that I mention this is that I see alot of users still using the various older versions of the BeOS client (as seen in stats.bml), and I was thinking that they simply don't know that I have released a few updates since I took over for Simon.

5 On a side note, can whoever is maintaining the "Download a Client" page either add my "AliveJournal" client for BeOS to that list, or replace the existing entry for BeOS with it (since Simon's client doesn't work anymore as it is). There is also a changelog available.

(no subject)

Ok everyone... here is my alpha LiveJournal sync client for Win32. It's nothing special, it has a long way to go, but it does work. Primarly the features it has, are the ability to download your entire journal, search through it (ctrl+f), and the ability to update you downloaded entries.

I'm looking for some help with this project, if you know some VB let me know. I need some help making the window more resizable, as well as someone to help me optimize the code because there are parts that are pretty slow. Take a look at it, let me know what you think. If you want a copy of the code let me know and I'll send it off to you.

LJ Sync 0.0.1a download it now!
