Announcing new python-based client, Charm

I'd like to announce the release of a new client, Charm.

Charm is written in Python. Its native environment is Unix, but given Python's portability, it should run on desktop systems of a variety of flavors.

Charm is text-based, but it is menu-driven. It has full-fledged support for posting and editing journal entries, including some interesting features like visual calendar-based journal entry selection, and being able to save and resume writing sessions.

I think of this as a more powerful alternative to the perl-based JLJ client.

See the Charm home page for more details, and to download the client.

How do I get this added to the official client downloads page?

Comments very much appreciated...
