Just trying to find out if posting in UTF-8 is on the agenda yet. I haven't seen a mention of this anywhere as yet, but it's already getting a bit annoying since editing with the (Sema) client trashes UTF-8 posts.

Maybe an announcement in news is in order?

Unstable LogJam branch posts UTF-8 just fine. :P

Nice to know someone's on the ball...even if it's a little useless to me. :)

But to answer your question, I don't know anything about a real Win32 client supporting UTF-8 in the near future... though I may not exactly be "in the loop", that's only because the loop is mostly bradfitz.

I plan to resume working officially for LJ in about a month and I hope to work on a Win32 client then.

There is a new unicode beta version of Semagic.
But evedently bradfitz don't need it to be published 'cause he still don't resolve licence problems with visions

Re:

I'm happy to hear that you're still working on Semagic. I wouldn't have been surprised if you had just given up, considering all the bad feeling.

Have you heard anything from bradfitz? The last statement from visions in lj_win32 was nearly a month ago and it said that everything was about to be sorted out:
The license has been changed for the win32 client and has been approved by Brad and myself. When he get's back to the US on Monday, things will be finalized and repackaged. At that point, all derived projects in violation of the license (sema in this case is the main focus) will have the option of complying with the new license or not. If they choose to not comply, then the client will be in violation still and thus illegal. If however, they choose to comply then all will be fine and development, distribution, etc etc can resume as normal.
Of course, he doesn't tell us what any of that means or allow comments so that you could ask. Has anyone contacted you about this? Do you know what complying with the new license actually means?

I must say it all sounds strange to me. I always thought code released under GPL was always GPL.

In the light of that post, and of this recent one (http://www.livejournal.com/talkread.bml?journal=lj_win32&itemid=21739), are you now good to go with the new version?
