Public 1.72 universal binary beta

People who would like to test, can download here. Universal binary (hopefully) works on all machines running OSX.

Uses a different preference file, so you can switch back and forth between the current release and this test version. Bug Reports/Request for Enhancements here.

User-editable wiki at: http://iJournal.os10.org so help out on documentation.

Works with livejournal, deadjournal, greatestjournal and more.

Please check functionality on new Macs with Intel chips (as I do not have one to test on (yet)).

Change Log hasn't been updated yet, but includes Comment Screening support, Userpic Icon support, and bug fixes.

some things...
first, this used to work in the 1.70b release, you aren't correctly parsing non-western characters for the user's name. I have Russian characters in it and i get those weird symbols like ĐĐ°Đ² instead of Паве... etc.
it would be cool if the prefs were copied over on initial launch.
prefs should have the keystroke command-comma, not command-semicolon.
prefs sheet should have OK with Return as the key equiv; that's a simple Interface Builder patch.
Any reason why prefs and about windows are modal sheets, btw?
that's all for now, though i'm also not sure why the usericon needs to be a clickable button...
good to see a new release though, keep up the great work.

Re: some things...
Do you have UTF-8 enabled in preferences and still see the incorrect characters? The default is UTF-8 off. If there's still an issue, open a bug please.

RFE: copying prefs: probably won't do that since it's a one-off
BUG: prefs button/menu, file a bug report.

modal sheets due to the immediate changes they cause to how the application responds to servers, and you don't want people clicking in the middle of one fetch for icons, and one for editing friends.

clickable user icon is a bug.

Thanks for the quick check, and kind words :)

ah, I thought that was related to posting, not to the app UI. I did check off that pref after launching iJ, but never bothered relaunching. I see that it works fine now.
will file the bugs at some point.
p.s. is there a way for us to make the tags field work the same way the moods field does, except that (obviously) we would pull the tags from the server?

Re: UTF8
The command-; -> command-, is fixed in 1.73.
The return key on the Preferences sheet is fixed in 1.73.

These changes are checked in, but no release has been made. Next release will be 1.75 unless critical bugs are found.

The tags aren't fetchable via the client interface: http://www.livejournal.com/doc/server/ljp.csp.flat.protocol.html

The other option would be storing the tags locally as they are entered, but because they are comma separated, it wouldn't be really feasible in a user-interface, especially if someone is tag-happy and has like a bazillion different tags.

There needs to be translations done for the nib and documentation on the wiki, so if you're interested in doing Russian, let me know.

Hey, Cryo! Thanks for the update. Seems to work fine on my PowerBook. Gave it a little exercising... log in, post, edit post. Looking forward to trying the Tags feature. :-)

The big userpic seems like a waste of limited window real estate. Would be great to make this optionally visible (in the View menu), or perhaps have a thumbnail next to the Picture menu to confirm selections.

If the userpic weren't there, my instinct would be to have Mood and Music fields on the left, and tags, date, time on the right, under the main text field.

I'd also love to be able to change the size of the text that's being displayed in the iJournal window without causing iJournal to post styled text to LiveJournal.

Thanks for the solid update, Cryo!
