What would you like to see next in QTXPost?

Right now it already has all the options I've personally ever wanted in an LJ-client, except for archiving/offline search. I wonder if I should start with:

* archiving/offline search

* LJ/DW-specific functions such as friends management and admin console (wonder if anybody ever uses these from a client)

* eye candy/bloat (e.g. interactive help, skins, desktop icons, rich text editor, translating the GUI into different languages)

* connecting other blogging platforms, such as Blogger and WordPress

* something else I didn't think of

Oh and here's the list of changes in the latest version, if you're wondering why you should download it.


v 0.2.5
* fixed bug with link rendering in progress window
* added "Before date" in SelectPost
* fixed SelectPost cleanup and autoDefault
* added up/down buttons for a convenient way of reordering accounts
* added tr() to all strings for the future interface translation
* a tentative workaround against occasional double posting

v 0.2.4
* open/save file
* detect current music (from Amarok)
* clickable links in progress window
* select/edit posts from communities
* preliminary support of stylesheets

v 0.2.3

* fixed bug with silently restoring community x-posting status even when not selected in preferences
* parsing server reply when posting to moderated communities
* added visual indication on the button, when a community is selected instead of user journal

v 0.2.2

* save/restore custom groups in preferences
* new option: select/edit old posts
* updating last post now requires confirmation if some posts are out of sync
* fixed multiline signatures in config
* added a couple of DB indexes to improve performance
* various bug fixes

I would like to see a simple toolbar with lazy man's options to do some formatting.
E.g. a B button that would insert , an I button that would insert and a U for underline things. Simple stuff like that. I don't need a real rich text editor, that's serious bloat. But something to take care of these format things would be nice.

As I said, lazy man's stuff. Qtxpost as it is works fine for me at the moment. The focus for the program after all is blogging, and if something like this can take the (my!) nuissance off the dumb HTML typing, it would be cool. :-)

Exactly, that is what I had in mind, but then with plain HTML codes. :)

Let's wait and see if there be more.

I don't use a client right now, but I would use one that interfaced smartly with the console. Trying to remember all of the different codes and tricks is a pain...

My shooting-the-moon request for friends management would be drag-and-drop friend-group editing, but I'm pretty sure that's not actually feasible with a client.

If you're talking about the list in http://www.dreamwidth.org/admin/console/reference vs. http://www.livejournal.com/admin/console/reference.bml - I think it's mostly that DW's docs are newer. http://www.dreamwidth.org/admin/console/index vs. http://www.livejournal.com/admin/console/index don't show much difference.

When I say drag-and-drop, I suppose I should clarify that I'm thinking of dragging FROM one group into another, which isn't really supported by the main interface yet, so I don't expect your client to manage it well (since it's actually making two separate edits to two separate groups, as I understand things).

*grumble* I wish I'd heard about this earlier! I can't wait to get home and install it and play with it, but I'm most astoundingly going to be more out than home until next week!
