First public beta release of Mac-Adversaria CheckFriends module.

Adversaria is another LJ client for the Classic Mac OS; at present, only the CheckFriends module is available. Phoenix, though an awesome client, doesn't do the checkfriends mode, so I wrote this little thingie to avoid hitting reload in my browser every time I want to see if my friends have updated.

Download Site

What is this thing? It uses the checkfriends mode at user-specified intervals (from 90 seconds up to 9999 hours) to see if your friends have updated their journals. When new updates are detected, will launch your browser and load your friends page (if you ask it really nicely). Also provides a menu with direct links to each of your individual friends' journals (up to 128 in the current version) and links to your friends page, your own journal, and the LJ status page.

This beta version is a binary only release, but source code is available on request; the final release version will be under a BSD style licence with source - see the ReadMe for details. Mac OS 7.5.x to 9.x, PowerPC (see ReadMe for full system requirements, it's pretty lightweight but there's no 68K version at this time, and it's not fully Carbonized at this point).

Feedback, questions, observations, comments, bug reports, flames, adoration, cashiers' cheques and cute girls' phone numbers are all welcomed and appreciated.

There is now a community for this new client: adversaria_lj (thanks to xenofalcon for the invite code...)

Will you be starting a community for this client, to keep its users up-to-date?

I'm all out of codes, but as soon as I renew my paid status I'll start a community for it.
