Next Testing Release Available

Well, the next testing release (3) for the 1.60 version of iJournal (the result of the DEVEL_1 branch) is now available:
http://www.student.cs.uwaterloo.ca/~jmdisher/ijournal.dmg (same link as before)

This version brings back friend group modification. This still isn't quite complete but it is getting there.

Note to cryo: What else should we try to have done before taking this back to the trunk?

Tell me if there are any big problems. Also, can someone tell me if this runs properly on 10.1 and 10.2 (I only have 10.3 available to me)?

I've lost track of things... does this client allow us to archive the LJ to disk?

Or was that never implemented?

That did exist for a little while but it isn't in this version. Basically, I removed it from this since it was a special case in the old code-base and it can be made into a generic approach once the new code-base has the more common features finished.

The local archiving feature will be brought back in such a way to also allow offline posting.

I think that the local archiving feature first appeared in 1.52 or 1.53.

Something that this version does do, however, is that it saves the current post so you don't lose it if you re-login (something I am many others do by accident) or the client crashes.

Well, if it's coming back, then yay.

I haven't used a client in a while, but I keep up with all the mac clients, because I go through phases where I use the portal page and phases where I use the client.

I gave up on iJournal when xJournal came out. Are you going to surpass the usability of xJournal, or should I just continue to ignore iJournal?

Usability isn't something which can easily be measured (at least in any quantitative way) because it is pretty much a concept that exists entirely within the mind of the user.

I am hoping that we will be able to do some interesting things with iJournal, as time goes on.

The best way for you to decide if you find it usable would be to download it and see if you like it. Once we get the history back into the new code-base we should be able to offer a lot of useful features.
