Crosspost 0.1.3 Alpha Released! [Jan. 10th, 2005|10:25 am]
LiveJournal Client Discussions


For all those keeping up with new client projects, I'd like to announce Crosspost!

Crosspost is an extremely new project aimed at integrating multiple blogging communities into one interface. Currently supported protocols include:
  • Blogger
  • Livejournal
  • Xanga

While other applications have attempted to provide this functionality in the past, the Crosspost project is unique in interface design. With the click of a single button, users can crosspost to multiple accounts.

This alpha release provides the following features:
  • Re-designed SWT interface
  • Multiple user profiles, each with their own accounts
  • Profile storage/retrieval
  • Account verification for all protocols
  • Crossposting for all protocols
  • Post security levels (public, private, protected)

While this release is fully operational, it is an alpha release and, as such, it is missing common components such as integrated help. Be warned.

Can I make a suggestion to trim the bottom banner? As it stands, unless I desperately needed this functionality already, I wouldn't check your project out, because I'd assume the branding wasn't optional.

Optional Branding

Thanks for the reply!

I have always planned on making the branding optional. Right now, it's hard-wired in, but that will change as soon as I get the main features hammered out.

Re: Optional Branding

Plus, the branding is only the <hr> and the one line that says it was posted by Crosspost. I feel that, especially with it eventually being a completely optional feature, it's not really all that intrusive.

Re: Optional Branding

It's not the amount of branding that concerns most people, but the presence, at least in my opinion. But it's your client (and it's open-source, natch), so you get to do what you want. :-)

Compiler Problem Fixed...

I just realized that the version that was up on SourceForge had a bad jar. The jar only worked in Java version 1.5. I now have a backwards-compatible jar up there, so if you downloaded it before 5PM EST on 10 Jan and you're have trouble getting it to run, you'll have to re-download it to correct the error.

You can always grab the latest source from sourceforge's CVS and build it yourself. It runs great as an Eclipse project, since you can add the SWT libraries directly from Eclipse.

If you need a jar built, let me know and I'll post one for you.

I posted a jar-only release. Make sure you read the notes for it before trying to run it.


Hope this helps...
