woo! i really really really like the new way of having it display the current song and being able to have the prefix/suffix hidden. ^_^

the friends editor in ijournal isn't working for me - i select it from the menu and nothing happens. ^^;;

as for the brushed metal interface, it looks cool, but i think i prefer the usual ijournal interface...

I really like the brushed metal "iApp" interface.

But then, my current scheme (musix) makes my whole interface look like that.

A link from the main iJournal page to the changelog would be useful. I had to go digging to find out what 1.48 changed, and why I would (or wouldn't) want to upgrade. Thanks.

Agreed 100%
This was the first thing I wanted to read, when iJournal oh-so-helpfully informed me of the new version. And as of now, after half an hour or so of digging, I still haven't found it. But at least now I know it does actually exist.

I don't think it's really optional ;). Every release has been subsequently better with more bug fixes, so it's generally imperative that people upgrade. This also lets me only deal with existing bugs, and not bugs that were fixed in 1.48, but because the person is using 1.46 and doesn't want to upgrade, that they want a fixed 1.46 for the bug they're reporting. I include all changes (that we remember to put in the file) into ReadMe.rtf so that people can see what changes there are (at the bottom). I guess I could start forwarding cvs changes to the community.. hmm. I'll dwell on that.

But, regardless of all of the babble, I do agree that this would be good just from a PR point-of-view, and I'll add a link that does the cvs webview of the latest ReadMe.rtf - I might have to make the change in the tree to have this just be a txt file to make this work... ramble ramble.

I shouldn't post when I first wake up.

thanks for the suggestion.

I prefer the brushed metal look. (why isnt the 1.48 one i downloaded brushed metal? i might just be an idiot, but whatever)

If that check version window is a sheet, it looks kinda wierd, like its not connected to anything. Otherwise it rocks.

The metal look is for the next version, which will require all the developers to update to the latest Apple dev tools.

Ya, I agree that the sheets should not be metal! :-) Maybe we need two versions of the next release: metal and non-metal. :-D

That what I had thought, since he had Project Builder open in the back

Metal sheets evil.

I think brushed metal is the way of the future for OS X and beyond. First it was all aqua, now it's brushed metal. Quicktime saw this comin' years ago and beat the rest of us to it. Crazy old Apple.

Personally, I don't like it that much.. ironic, I know, that the person who first suggested a thing long before this option came about wouldn't like it... but it just doesn't feel right yet, and I see little need for it. Maybe it's all that brushed metal exposed.. it just looks wrong. Plus, I'm pretty sure that iApps are for consumers (non-pros), but even though the client isn't that hard to use and is named "iJournal," I don't really think that if the brushed chrome/metal look is said to be for 'consumer' and computer-dumb Joe Sixpack-types, that it's appropriate for the [arguably] best Mac OS X client for LiveJournal.

I do hope that there will be an Aqua-based (and also theme-compliant) version kept up... though I feel sorry for developers that they're either going to have to choose metal or non-metal (and possibly annoy/anger/lose users), or keep up two separate versions of their applications. I'm also not very happy with Apple for making this a switch in the freakin' ProjectBuilder instead of just making it a user-customizable or preferable SYSTEM-WIDE option (such as a theme).. but on the other hand, at least it's just the flip of a switch, it may end up being a complete system-wide change (now that Aqua barely matches Mac hardware), and it could be worse--it could be something ugly. :)

So.. heh.. to make a short story longer, I agree with this comment.

It only works under Jaguar (10.2), so don't expect to see it anytime soon.

This might sound stupid, but what is the little alien head that pops up into my menu bar signify? It really freaked me out the other night and I had a bunch of apps running and I couldn't figure out which one was causing it. When I clicked on it, it went away.
