Client Suggestion

I don't know how hard this will be or anything, considering we don't have a client maintainer anymore.

What my idea is, is basically an upgrade to the flashey thing in the new client that tells you when a friend has posted. It's handy but too handy, at the moment I only read certain friends entries most of the time, unless I have enough time to read the lot, so what would be cool would be the ability for the client to only flash when someone has posted something who is in a certain friends group of mine.

I think it would be really cool if it worked, and I'm sure other people would use it as well as me.

Source release

Another snapshot of the code is available here.

Notable changes:
  • html cleaner
  • qbufferd fixes
  • ljrpc client/daemon (dormando) ... not useful unless you're running a big LJ installation
  • bin/release.pl ... the script to make source releases. okay, that's not really interesting. but I moved it there so it'd get included.
AlanJ --- Sorry, I started to merge your patch and then realized it was a lot more work than I thought and everybody was nagging me about getting the directory up and running, so I did that instead. I'll finish adding your changes this week ... I really want to. It makes things a lot cleaner.

Then, I need to start finding a way to package this so it's damn easy for other people to install and run .... removing all LJ-specific content, too.
