Dare and Torsten have announced their latest beta of RSS Bandit v1.3. Seems stable so far. The delicious plug-in is now installed by default even though the wBloggar plug-in is still the original one rather than Phil Haack’s more useful one.
We are now feature complete for the next release of RSS Bandit. Interested users can download it at http://rssbandit.sourceforge.net/RssBandit.188.8.131.52.Wolverine.Beta.zip. All bugs specific to the previous alpha release have been fixed. The next steps for us are finish working on documentation, translations and fixing any bugs that are reported during the beta with the intention of shipping a final release in the next two weeks.
How much easier is it to blog when you don't first have to dial up to the net, pull up a browser, redirect it to your blog, log in and then hope that once written, the blog doesn't discount it in afit of peak because of its vagaries in cross-posting between several at the same time? Oh muchly. So all hail wBloggar
for being the great utility it is alongside RSSBandit
and, to a lesser extent, Firefox's live bookmarks. Now in its new version 4.0, wBloggar is much improved over v3 and thanks to this excellent plugin for RssBandit, makes for a great double punch when it comes to noting some of the better posts out there. If you haven't tried wBloggar before, go for it. It really is that darn good. wBloggar works with the WMP blog plug-in that's part of the winter fun pack too.
The two .NET apps I use for most of my blog related activities have been updated recently.
- DasBlog 1.3 powers this blog. DasBlog 1.6 was released over the weekend. Apart from looking a lot spiffier, there's a whole raft of changes and improvements since 1.5.
- RssBandit v184.108.40.206 was also released over the weekend. It now supports Atom 0.3, autocompletion, and a lot more. It's also a lot faster than previous versions.
One of the DasBlog project leads, Omar Shahine is also building a neat little add-on for OneNote. Rss2OneNote looks like it could be very handy.
