Mitter 1.0.0 alpha 7 “Anything and everything in my power.” released

Following the continual improvement of Mitter, alpha 7 is now released.

THIS IS AN ALPHA RELEASE! We want to test most of the new features, code and interface to be sure that things are going to the right way. Some features (like DBus notifications) are disabled at this point to make sure the base code works without a problem. If you want to help, remember to run Mitter from a terminal with the “-d” option (to display debug messages.) Any help is welcome.

  • Fixed a crash (just internal, Mitter would still run fine) when deleting messages.
  • Fixed an issue with Python 2.5. It seems that, from time to time, I add some feature that only exists in Python 2.6. From this point, I’ll try to make Mitter compatible only with the previous minor release from the current stable version. So, when Python 2.7 is launched officially, Mitter will require at least Python 2.6.
  • Added support for coloring Hashtags, users and Groups (not a Twitter feature, but it’s used in Identi.ca, so I’m just paving the way for future networks.)
  • The statusbar will try to keep more important messages displayed. Smaller updates (i.e. “Message deleted”) will appear for about 10 seconds and then disappear, showing the time to for next update.
