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.

Data Recovery from bad RAID 1 mirrored volume on Mac OS X

If you're reading this page, it's because you are trying to find good advice on how to recover data from a bad mirrored drive, also known as RAID 1 (one) on Mac OS X or Mac OS X Server 10.4 (Tiger) or 10.5 (Leopard).First, as it says on the cover of the good book, don't panic. Take a deep breath, and take your time.It's very likely that you can recover your data [NOTES 1, 2] in this situation (a probable bad disk in a RAID 1 mirror). The path to doing so is unfortunately not as obvious as it might seem, and not as obvious as it perhaps should be, but it's pretty simple.Read a whole lot about the subject before you try anything, understand what each tool does before you use it, and then read and think some more before you take the first step.Before You BeginNow, a bit of background. Typically in such a situation (a bad drive in a RAID 1 mirror) one would expect to be able to "break" the RAID 1 mirror, using the software controls you used to establish the m…

A better sample gitignore file for XCode Cocoa projects on Mac OS X (iPhone, too)

When we switched to git last year (from Subversion) we took a little time and beefed up our ignore file. While working on another project recently, I realized that most of the example .gitignore files for Cocoa/MacOSX/XCode on the web are really not terribly complete, and the results can be very frustrating when you're just getting started with a new repository.Here's a better .gitignore example. Let me know if I left anything out. (I saw a few examples from people who exclude the pattern "profile", but as far as I can tell, that's really not a very good idea. I assume they have a specific use case of some kind which eludes my pondering.)The current version of this file can be found on GitHub:
.gitignore for Xcode, Cocoa, Swift, Objective C, Mac OS X, iOS, TV, Watch
