Developer Brad Rhine has made Frequency 2.0 available. Frequency is used to update weblogs, or blogs. The new release adds built-in FTP file transfers, the ability to simultaneously manage more than one blog, support for many international characters, one button weblog updates, HTML buttons that add styles and links to posts and more.
In addition, Frequency 2.0 adds support for Blogger, Radio, Movable Type, pMachine, GeekLog (with the Blogger API plugin), EraBlog.NET, b2evo, Nucleus, and WordPress. With the application, you can set up your user name and password for those services — or any other Blogger API or metaWeblog API system — and create your blog updates from there, instead of spending extra time with a Web-based update system.
This update is a US$9 upgrade for registered users of version 1.x. A full license is $19. You can download a demo from Rhine’s Web site and run it 14 times before it places a text ad at the end of each post; FTP file transfers are also unavailable until you register the application. Frequency 2.0 requires Mac OS X v10.2.8 “Jaguar” or higher. If you’re running Panther, v10.3.3 is recommended.
