iBlogger's 841 Pixels of Fame (Times Two!)

This is undoubtedly entirely random, as we don't have any contacts in the art department at Apple, but iBlogger happened to show up in Apple's WWDC graphic today, in their announcement of the availability of the videos from the WWDC 2010 Sessions. Two hundred thousand applications on the App Store, and ours happened, probably by accident, to be in the app icon swirl at just the right time. (I'm assuming that this graphic was generated automatically from a derivative of the "App Wall" application at WWDC, which shows icons of different apps, as they are downloaded.)

Cool!

ecto 3.0.2 released

ecto 3.0.2 was released today via the built in software updater.
The ecto 3.0.2 release includes the following fixes:

  • updated Amazon plugin
  • updated Flickr plugin
  • include Atom03 plugin by default (mostly for older Japanese blog systems)
  • fixed a URL redirect handling bug
  • minor documentation updates (link to correct location for support forum, etc.)
  • the ecto updater now uses a different XML feed to update the software based on the operating system version, separating Mac OS X 10.4 (Tiger) from later versions, (Leopard and higher)

(NOTE: At the moment, if you Check for Updates, the "Download Only" option isn't working quite as expected, which appears to be due to an issue on our server. The disk image downloads, but an error page for "file not found" also opens in your browser. The "Download and Install" option works as expected to update ecto to 3.0.2.)

Mac OS X Tiger users PLEASE NOTE:

In order to improve ecto stability on Snow Leopard, we need to switch to the newer, "Leopard and newer" Mac OS X APIs, so this is likely to be the final Tiger release. After this, if you're using Tiger, and check for updates, you'll be told that you have the most recent version of ecto, even though a newer version is available on Leopard or Snow Leopard. If you subsequently update to Leopard or Snow Leopard, ecto will inform you of the newer version.)

French users PLEASE NOTE:

The French localization is not included in this update. We hope to have this issue resolved soon.

Utilisateurs français s'il vous plaît no:

La localisation française n'est pas inclus dans cette mis `a jour. Nous espérons que cette question soit résolue rapidement.

Aye, Tee and Tee

It's pretty sad that nearly every person I know who loves their iPhone, would nonetheless finish the dangling sentence at the end of the Wall Street Journal teaser (for their interview with AT&T CEO Randall Stephenson) with the clause: "for his resignation."
