Title: Sid 0.8.0 ready for alpha soon
Well, it's been a long road, but the next version of Sid is going to go alpha soon. I can't believe it, myself. After being out of work for several months now I finally decided to get myself back into some Cocoa development - Sid being a priority.
So what's new? Well…
Spellchecking in the post form.
A completely overhauled layout, including a settings panel that actually makes sense.
The ability to post from the Preview panel.
The ability to select which weblog in the Conversation to post to.
A major launch speed improvement, due to the fact that this version of Sid is all OS X native Objective-C - no JRE to launch.
I'm using Apple's WebServicesCore API now, which should minimize API changes in the future (hey! I can dream...)
A clever new About box!
