New Release version 3.0.0 [Aug. 31st, 2002|09:24 pm]
mIRC LiveJournal Client

[mart]

I've had quite a few people contact me in the last few months saying they would like to continue working on mIRC-LJ. For one or two of them, I sent them my half-finished version 2.4.0 release, but since this seems to be a common interest I thought I'd take the time to finish it up and make one last release.

This will be the last release from me for the forseeable future. Hopefully this will give those who are wanting to have a go at adding some of the things mIRC-LJ is missing a better starting point. The most notable change in 3.0.0 is that data encoding is now handled by an external DLL and thus is much faster than in previous versions. This, among other benefits, makes the “Automatically log on when mIRC starts” option perhaps less irritating. See the changelog at the bottom of the documentation file for a more complete list of changes since version 2.3.3, the last public release.

It's Christmas Day [Dec. 25th, 2001|01:06 am]

I bet you forgot about this newslog journal, huh? ;)

As tired as it's probably getting, I just want to wish the few people who actually use my freaky LJ client a Merry Christmas if they celebrate it. Also, happy aithiest-children-get-presents day.

In case you were curious, I'm not developing mIRC-LJ anymore. I might take it up again some day, but for now it's staying as it is. At least one person has made modifications to mIRC-LJ to add some feature I didn't get around to implementing, and everyone else is free to do the same. If they want to release their modifications, then all the better.

Have a good one, folks.

Another New Version [Jun. 29th, 2001|01:28 pm]

It came to my attention that mIRC-LJ's HTTP support was no longer working. I'm assuming it's an issue caused by the new load balancer (entirely my fault though, mIRC-LJ's HTTP handler was a kludge at best). I've rewritten it to be more robust, so it shouldn't break again unless a very drastic changes is made.

Vote for LiveJournal [Jun. 21st, 2001|10:51 am]
mIRC LiveJournal Client

As you've probably noticed by now, LiveJournal has been trying to get users to vote for it in the 'Webby Awards' as a write-in candidate. The guy behind Blogger, Evan Williams, has recently got wind of this and pushed for Blogger users to vote for Blogger (a site which was already an option, rather than a write-in) to beat LiveJournal.

The people high up at LiveJournal, most notably Mark our 'All-things-business' manager, are very keen for LiveJournal, which wasn't even nominated, to beat Blogger on the write-in vote, where people are able to vote for sites which aren't already nominated.

If you'd like to show your appreciation for LiveJournal, as well as attracting publicity and therefore more users which may potentially pay for the service and fund future development, I encourage you to vote for LiveJournal in the personal site category write-in.

For more information, including Mark's views on why LiveJournal should win a Webbie, see the thread on the subject over in the LiveJournal Business Discussion Community.

mIRC-LJ site down [May. 29th, 2001|04:51 pm]

The server which contains, amongst other things, the mIRC-LJ site is currently down indefinitely. Until it returns, you will be unable to download mIRC-LJ from the mIRC-LJ site but it will work if you download from the LiveJournal server by both HTTP and FTP.

I'm going to contact my ISP shortly to find out when and if the server will be back up. Should they tell me it's gone for good, I'll be moving the site elsewhere.

Version 2.3.2 [May. 16th, 2001|04:15 pm]
mIRC LiveJournal Client

The new version 2.3.2 fixes a minor bug that was present in all of the clients until now.

It also adds support for the priority server for paid users. The server will tell the client at login whether or not you are authorised to use the priority server, and if so.. well, you will.

Version 2.3.1 [Mar. 26th, 2001|01:24 am]
mIRC LiveJournal Client

[mart]

I've released version 2.3.1 this evening. The main new feature is the ability to insert lines from channels directly into posts, complete with escaping of HTML special characters. I think now mIRC-LJ is worth having for people who often post things from IRC even if they use LJ-Win32 or the Web client for other things, but that's really just my opinion!

I also fixed a small bug which at this time makes no difference whatsoever, but could do in the future. It always pays to be prepared! :)

    Quickies [Feb. 24th, 2001|02:06 pm]

    Just a quick update... The latest version of mIRC-LJ (still 2.2.1) is available now on the LiveJournal FTP site and file area of the website (which are, in fact, the same thing.)

    Check out the mIRC directory of the FTP site or the file area.

    Brad has not yet sorted out the thing which will allow me to set the link on the download page to the correct filename, but I'm sure that will come with time.

    Quick Note [Feb. 2nd, 2001|05:11 pm]
    mIRC LiveJournal Client

    [mart]

    Due to the fact that I just did a quick flurry of revisions, there's some version confusion going on.

    Version 2.2.0 is now on the LiveJournal Download page. This isn't the most current version, however, as 2.2.1 has since superseded it to provide the customisable output thing. 2.2.1 was revised at least three times since I originally mentioned it, so you might want to redownload it from the mIRC-LJ site to ensure you have the most recent version. (Remember to have mIRC closed when you replace livejournal.mrc)

    There won't be any further revisions available on the LJ download page until BradFitz has set up the FTP server so client authors can upload their own stuff. I will therefore hold off making any more major releases until then. Minor releases (usually bugfix releases), if needed, will be advertised here only.

    Once Brad has the FTP thing up and running, I'll upload whatever the latest version is at the time.

    Small insignificant bug [Jan. 31st, 2001|03:52 pm]
    mIRC LiveJournal Client

    mirclj

    [mart]

    I've identified a small bug in the checkfriends support in mIRC-LJ. The bug causes the checkfriends support to be activated even if login fails, and was caused by me putting the code to start the checking in slightly the wrong place. When your login is incorrect, it will attempt to initialise checking but since the username and password it sends are blank this will fail and checking won't continue. The only ill-effects from this will arise if you login too quickly after failing login and the connection to the LJ server is still open.

    This small bug will be fixed in the next release, but I'm not going to do a minor release to fix it since it's not a big problem and most users will never even see the problem.

    Update: I fixed the issue detailed above, and a few other minor things, as well as adding more configurable output since people asked for it. Version 2.2.1 is available now from the mIRC-LJ site, and will be sent to BradFitz at some point this evening.

    If you have any problems with the new version, please reply to this post.
