Catkin QTM 0.5.3 / 0.5.4 Beta 2

Catkin QTM is a blog management app which uses the Blogger, MetaWeblog and Movable Type APIs.
Catkin QTM is a blog management app which uses the MetaWeblog, Blogger and Movable Type APIs to submit and (in the future) edit and otherwise manage entries on a blog.

Presently, however, it is possible to compose, format, preview and submit entries, in one or more categories, and edit newly submitted entries. This is a development snapshot release. Requires Qt 4.1.

This is by the same author as the Catkin application, which was a manager for Blosxom blogs. This is a fresh rewrite, using Qt 4.1 (instead of 3.3) and with the Blosxom-related parts removed.

They are still in CVS, however, and may be restored in the future. The old releases are still available at Sourceforge


Qt 4.0

What's New in 0.5.3 Stable Release:

Removed feature: Blogger support. Blogger no longer supports the APIs that QTM uses.
New feature: Abort, which stops the current network job (refresh blog or category list, blog entry posting or whatever)
New features: New variants on Paste: paste as ordered/unordered list, marked paragraphs (with tags), normal blockquotes and Markdown blockquotes, and ability to mark up a block as an ordered or unordered list.
New feature: Ability to set whether to submit a date and time or not at posting time, to avoid clock skews (problem on Wordpress and Textpattern, not on MT).
New feature: Ability to set the post's remote categories explicitly, through action "Send categories" in File menu
Build system: Fixed relinking issue at install time, in which (on sandboxed installs of Qt 4.3.0) the executable was relinked to the normal install of Qt, even if it was older than 4.3 (causing unresolved symbol errors).
Bug fix: now saves entry numbers when saving entries, so that you can reopen a posted entry and have QTM post an edit, rather than a new post.
User interface: removed (from view) the unused actions, Print and "Close and delete".

What's New in 0.5.4 Beta 2 Development Release:

New feature: Auto link, allowing a certain URL to be associated with a certain word, so that the author can highlight that word, click Auto link, and the link to that URL will appear. (Note: at the moment, it does not store the title or target.)
