The La Jolla Underground has released
Weblog Poster 1.2
(previously known as Radio Poster), a tool for posting messages to a weblog.
Weblog Poster posts messages to a weblog that supports either the Blogger API or the MetaWeblog API. Weblog Poster has been tested with Radio UserLand, Movable Type, and Blogger.
The latest version offers support for multiple weblogs with a favorites window, better copy and paste to and from glossaries, better drag and drop to and from glossaries, and support for copy and paste while editing glossary entries, according to William Leshner of La Jolla Underground. Also new in version 1.2 is support for multiple Weblogs. A new “add to favorites” checkbox in the configuration tab of a compose window adds the Weblog configuration to a list of favorite Weblogs.
A new favorites window lists all favorites. To post to a favorite Weblog, you double-click on it in the favorites window, and a correctly configured compose window will open, ready for a new Weblog post. Weblog Poster, which is made with the REALbasic environment from Real Software, can be found online. The application can be used with Mac OS X and OS 9.
Mr. Tides, also made with REALbasic, has also been updated to version 2.0.5. It’s a maintenance update to Mr. Tides 2.0, a utility that lets a Mac display tides, that fixes problems with the date routines that lead to incorrect tide values on the classic Mac operating system and the inability to set the start of DST past June 2nd on Mac OS X.
Mr. Tides 2.0.5 also updates several of the maps, corrects the calculation of the meridian to be what cartographers use, corrects sunrise and sunset when the time zone doesn’t match the longitude, and adds more checking code to detect when index files need updating (this was a problem on Mac OS X as the modification dates change based upon the local time zone). The latest version also updates the Indexer utility to generate UTC and CRC check codes.
Classic and Carbon versions of Mr. Tides 2.0 are available for download. There are also updater files to take Mr. Tides from 2.0 to 2.0.5 for the traditional Mac OS or Mac OS X.
