drivel 0.4.0, the livejournal client for gnome, is out! you can download it from http://sourceforge.net/projects/drivel , but keep in mind that it requires gnome-2 beta 1 or higher. it seems stable to me, and it supports all the basic livejournal features--subjects, security level, mood icons, music, pictures, fast servers, proxies, etc. there's plenty of work still to do, but i wanted to get this code tested before continuing too far. since drivel is based on gnome-2, it comes with the added advantages of anti-aliased text, the super-cool gconf configuration system, glib-based asynchronous network transfers, the gnomevfs virtual filesystem (for saving/loading unposted entries), and pretty icons.
