Trying out lekhonee-gnome-0.11

A few days ago i set out to implement a few good features in GScribble

  • Downloading style information of a blog
  • Support multiple blogs
  • Adding WYSIWYG support using WebKit
  • Using keyring to store account passwords
  • Using gtksourceview2 to show HTML syntax highlighting
  • Keep local copies of blogs
I talked to this about Kushal Das, and to my surprise (and his, he asked me “did anyone give you these ideas?”), i found out that these features are already present in the latest version of Lekhonee-Gnome. I earlier had an ancient version of Lekhonee-Gnome that is present in the Ubuntu repositories. Today I compiled and installed Lekhonee-Gnome from source. Its great. If there is anything I can immediately notice that can be improved, its the GUI. It may be changed a bit and made more intuitive to provide better accessibility.
But overall, its a great piece of software. Finally a suitable replacement for the MSN Live Messenger which I have missed all through the last year since I shifted to Linux full time.
Good Work!
