SharpMT 3.5

After another three years, I’ve decided that I should a change to SharpMT… I could have made the changes to the version at Codeplex but I decided to do it on my own local code base (and share the bits) because 3.x includes spell checking and the 4.x on Codeplex does not due to licensing issuess. There’s really only one change here: SharpMT now uses the .NET Framework 4.0 instead of aging 2.0. Why? Take a look at the Windows Development Preview for the hint of a clue…

SharpMT 4.0 – Released To CodePlex

CodePlex: SharpMT is an offline Blog writer that is designed for MovableType based systems. There are three versions of the application: desktop, PocketPC, and SmartPhone, all of which share the same file format for offline drafts. The project files included have three different versions – one for each platform – as well as installation and help system project files.

It’s alive!

I’m not sure if I’m going to do it or not, but I’m thinking about it… and I may actually have some free time this weekend (as I’m stuck in my house, waiting for repairs to get done and stuff) but… well. It’s been over a year since I’ve had an update to the products in question…. maybe it’s time.

I’m thinking of putting the source code for SharpMT, Pocket SharpMT, and Phone SharpMT on CodePlex.

Anyone have any thoughts on this?

Text Filters Work Again

Just an FYI to all SharpMT users that use TypePad for hosting: getting Text Filters from the server works again!

Don’t know when it started working but it worked today – I first reported the problem in July and had seen it for months before that, thinking it was a Vista problem. True, I could be more forgiving, but a) I’m a paying customer, b) I help to drive business to Six Apart products and c) it still took over four months to get a fix in place for a server based product.

Ah well. At least it’s working again!
