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.

Blogs: Not dead, yet!

If you're a blogger, you might find this essay, recently shared to YCombinator's Hacker News  from a blog, to be of interest. It's perhaps a little pessimistic, but has some fair observations about the state of affairs in the #blogosphere.  If I could bring one thing back to the internet it would be blogs It's almost impossible now to find a blog that's not on a focused theme because that's what search engines focus on and how websites profit. But you want the opposite, a blog that never tried to focus or even thought about it.  The observations about the role of the only search engine that presently matters, Google, in the state of the blogosphere are worthy of consideration. In the discussion at Hacker News, the author was criticized a bit for saying that Google Blogger was "dead" —which itself seems a pretty fair criticism if not strictly accurate in a pedantic sense. Google basically abandoned Blogger in place years ago. Sure, our own ill

The Best Things in Life are Free Birdseed

This weekend we had a call with a prospective client eager to pay us to help them build out a new social media feature in their (very cool) software system. We turned them down. They had an urgent deadline, but that doesn't scare us. They'd also already done some exploratory prototyping before they realized they needed some help, so they had a pretty good idea of what they needed help with. After listening to them describe their current status, I asked a few questions and then realized they had run into a little snag with a non-obvious feature of the API used to talk to a particular cloud service. They didn’t really need our help building and delivering the short term solution, they just needed an email briefly describing the shortest path from where they stood, to the goal. I sent them the email they needed, right after the call.  They're running with the ball, now, and they're gonna make the goal. We didn’t lose business, we made a friend. A fascinating thing about th

iBlogger 3 for iPhone and iPad available now on App Store

Pulling iBlogger off the #iPhone #AppStore a few years ago wasn't an easy decision.  One of the first apps on the App Store in 2008, iBlogger had grown a loyal following of thousands of bloggers who had created over a million blog posts in the first couple years. Countless more after that. To save the product, we had to kill it. But iBlogger was always a labor of love for my team, not really a profit center. We didn't have the bandwidth to maintain the old Objective C source code and migrate the app to Swift at the same time. Too many things were changing at once, new blog platforms being created, old ones being retired, new protocols, social media, and a strong demand for iPad support when the core of the app made unfortunate assumptions about iPhone screen sizes.  To save the product, we had to kill it. So we did. Today, that painful decision bears fruit.  iBlogger is back on the iPhone and #iPad #AppStore!  iBlogger 3 is a great new foundation for the future of mobile bloggi
