Sorry about that.

I didn’t have a chance to read all of them before I shot from the hip with mine.

I hope you’re able to see the issues that were brought up in the NewsGator forum.

I look forward to seeing how ME progresses, because I’ve been using clients to post to my blog since Radio Userland let me create stories on my Manila blog earlier this century. (I just love saying that!) ME is a decent one, although I don’t think anything quite matched the way RU worked with Manila — although the actual writing environment wasn’t as good as ME’s text editor, you could edit virtually every aspect and setting of the site with RU. I think that’s something to strive for. Maybe Atom will allow that.

MarsEdit needs to support a special Google authentication protocol, which I’m currently adding support for.

Jaharmi: I think you’re right that providing “Software” and “API” would be a good choice. The Software would be a cue to MarsEdit about what API is probably best, but wouldn’t lock the user into that API.

I have some outstanding requests on the NewsGator MarsEdit forum about support for Drupal. Currently, the “Drupal” API in MarsEdit is not up to date with the current state of Drupal, so it’s actually better to use the MovableType API.

Even this is not without problems. I’ve got it working just enough so that round-tripping posts back and forth between MarsEdit and Drupal 4.7 doesn’t corrupt the entries.

Perhaps you could have a choice for API _and_ blogging/CMS tool. I’m not sure how to best accomplish that, especially since these choices are so related and could even change with different versions of MarsEdit and/or the blogging/CMS tool.

Does this release fix the problems with new Blogger ?

Thanks

Dimitri

I just gave MarsEdit a try last week for the first time after reading that you acquired it. I use Drupal for my blog and it doesn’t allow me to select the input format or category. At least the former issue is a problem with the version of Drupal I’m using (http://drupal.org/node/12484). I’m going to give MarsEdit another try after upgrading.

Long story short, I’m not using MarsEdit right now, but consider this a “vote” for Drupal. :)

I will not interpret the data that is collected so much as “what system people are using” as “what API people are using.”

I will look into the possibility of adding the ability to identify both the API and the specific system that is being used for their blogs.

MarsEdit works best with EE on the “MovableType” setting. I guess that would come through as MovableType?

I’ll work on that in the future. For the moment though I think it will help a lot just to know what API people are using, even if it doesn’t say exactly which system it is.

Glad you appreciate the flicker fix :)
