Hi!

My name is Tim. My girlfriend keeps whining about a few things, such as the lack of Keychain support or the fact that iJournal saves its state between sessions (causing her to mistakenly post in whatever community she last posted in when she really wants to post in her personal journal). So, I was wondering what I could possibly contribute in the way of new features? Are people working on the aforementioned bugs?

I'm usually pretty busy during the day working at The Omni Group, but I figure I can contribute a little at night :-)

The current version, as far as I can tell, doesn't save the journal to post in between sessions at all. Reset After Posting in prefs will prevent it from saving between posts.

Keychain support would be nice. The ugly API prevented me from implementing that along with the multi-user support.

State Saving
What you are describing for the saved state sounds odd since that is exactly the opposite of the behavior I observed.

I currently have some different state-saving code which handles some of these issues in a different way (solves the problem of accidentally hitting login killing your current post which some people were asking to be fixed recently) and will now save the state on a per-user basis and save the state at some more meanginful times. I will be committing this code once I have the time to make sure that everything seems consistent (or I can do it tonight if you guys think I should).

I am not at my development system right now so I can't be sure but I think that making it reset the state after a post is actually a preference.

Re: State Saving
Huh. We can't reproduce it now. I guess she accidentally selected the community and assumed it was iJournal's fault :-D

Anyway, I'm going to be staying out of any major code like that until I get the hang of how iJournal works. I think I'll start by fixing the Mood menu on Panther and storing the user's password in the Keychain instead of the preferences.

I have the same problem with it, unfortunately I am typing this from the peecee, so I can't try for myself. . .

I just wanted to say that Omni rules.

Do you do WebObjects stuff or write apps?

Thanks!

We don't really do WebObjects stuff anymore... we're trying to focus on apps. I'm one of the OmniWeb 4.5 developers.
