to copy/paste directly from the changelog...

04.22.02 - drivel 0.7.0
~ the dirt chamber release ~

* three big network improvements:
1) write function now loops until all data has been sent
2) dns lookup is now done asynchronously. this makes
drivel's networking code fully non-blocking (and fast!).
3) default to the fast servers for all logins
* added "edit->select all" menu item
* added "insert->link" menu item
* added "insert->image" menu item
* added "edit->clear" menu item to erase an entry-in-progress
* fixed several irritating bugs in the network error code
* cleaned up some conflicting mnemonics
* grey the "OK" button on dialogs which require input
until the user enters valid input
* prevent the preferences dialog from closing if the user
has left the server or proxy addresses blank
* fixed a start-up crash that occured when a user had access
to several shared journals
* hitting a ctl-code now forwards the cursor out of the html tag
if the cursor is currently within a set (i.e hit ctl-b, type
some bold text, hit ctl-b again, type some regular text)
* misc. changes to bring drivel into compliance with the gnome 2.0
human-computer interface guidelines
* added a "sign up" button to the login window
* added help->"what's a livejournal?" menu item
* improved the login splash image

anyone who had problems with previous releases is stongly encouraged to upgrade. anyone who loved previous releases is strongly encouraged to upgrade. anyone who never has and never wants to try drivel is strongly encouraged to upgrade. anyone who wants to blast my grammer and clue me in to the fact that you can't upgrade from nothing is strongly encouraged to upgrade. gah am i ever tired!

oh yes, i almost forgot--

That looks pretty damn spiffy. Need to remember to give it a shot when I boot back into Linux on this machine. :)

Question - how come this is GNOME-dependent? Is there going to be panel applet support?

because the gnome project has written an incredible amount of very, very good code, and it would silly not to re-use it. that doesn't mean you need to run the gnome desktop--all you need are the basic libraries. i'm not planning on making this a panel applet, but i am going to get it working with the system tray. that way drivel can always be running and logged-in without taking up any screen real-estate.
