Charm 1.3.0 released

I've just released Charm 1.3.0. If you're looking for a console-based, all-text client that's still full-featured, check it out. It's written in Python, so it's cross-platform; in particular, however, it's part of most Linux distributions, so while it's not as commonplace a language as perl, chances are that you've probably got in on your Linux box.

Of particular note in this version are four new features:

  • Charm now has a "quick" mode, where you can post entirely from the command line, rather than going through the menu tree. Thus, you can use Charm as a filter to pipe things into, whether it's the output of Jive or using it as a backend for a mail-to-LiveJournal gateway.

  • Charm now has a mass-archival mode, that downloads and saves your journal posts between a specified pair of dates.

  • Charm's friend-checking modes now supports checking specific friend groups.

  • Config files can include other config files, so making multiple profiles for posting to non-LiveJournal sites is easier.

You can get Charm, more documentation, and the detailed list of changes from the Charm home page.
