The Mac programmers at La Jolla Underground have released Radio Poster 1.0, which posts messages to a Radio Weblog.
Radio is a product of UserLand Software, a Weblog tool that runs on your desktop. Radio UserLand automatically builds your site, organizes and archives your posts, and publishes your content — without any knowledge of HTML, FTP or graphic design, according to the folks at UserLand. All you need to do is install Radio and begin publishing. You can publish written text, links, photos, documents and more.
Currently at version 8.0, Radio UserLand 8.0 costs US$39.95 and includes hosting (up to 10MB) and free software updates for one year. It’s available for both the traditional Mac operating system and Mac OS X.
With Radio Poster, you can post a message by creating a new window, filling in the server information, composing the message and sending it. A substitution glossary simplifies adding links to a message, according to William Leshner of the La Jolla Underground. Just drag a link to the glossary field of a message, name the link and then refer to the link in a message with the name enclosed in double-quotes.
Radio Poster, which is made with the REALbasic development environment from REAL Software, automatically performs the link substitution when posting the message. There’s also a persistent global glossary that is shared among all messages. Radio Poster supports message drafts and message editing. Before a message is posted, it can be saved for later editing and posting. After a message is posted, it can be saved, edited and reposted. Version 1.0 is now available for downloading.
