IMPORTANT UPDATE - twhirl 0.8.7 fixes twitter support http://blog.twhirl.org/2008/12/13/important-update-twhirl-087-fixes-twitter-support/ http://blog.twhirl.org/2008/12/13/important-update-twhirl-087-fixes-twitter-support/#comments Sat, 13 Dec 2008 20:30:56 +0000 mak http://blog.twhirl.org/2008/12/13/important-update-twhirl-087-fixes-twitter-support/ Twitter pushed an update to their API yesterday, which interfered with twhirl’s checking of user credentials. To fix this problem, please update your client to version 0.8.7, either through the internal update mechanism, or from the twhirl website!

In addition to this fix, we also upgraded twhirl to support the new capabilities in the latest Adobe AIR release 1.5. The installer should check and automatically update your AIR installation, too.

twhirl 0.8.6 - adding laconi.ca support, fixing bugs http://blog.twhirl.org/2008/09/18/twhirl-086-adding-laconica-support-fixing-bugs/ http://blog.twhirl.org/2008/09/18/twhirl-086-adding-laconica-support-fixing-bugs/#comments Thu, 18 Sep 2008 23:26:42 +0000 mak http://blog.twhirl.org/2008/09/18/twhirl-086-adding-laconica-support-fixing-bugs/ Last Friday, we released a preview version of twhirl that supports generic laconi.ca installation. If you haven’t heard of laconi.ca yet, it’s an open source microblogging server software, and it powers the identi.ca microblogging site that twhirl already supported before. Also, this version of twhirl catches up with some changes in the Twitter API, so that you can now again (un)follow people in twhirl, or make tweets your favorites. And finally, if you use Dustin Salling’s IdentiSpy service, you can now see tracked messages from identi.ca in twhirl!

twhirl preview for laconi.ca sites http://blog.twhirl.org/2008/09/12/twhirl-preview-for-laconica-sites/ http://blog.twhirl.org/2008/09/12/twhirl-preview-for-laconica-sites/#comments Fri, 12 Sep 2008 12:53:14 +0000 mak http://blog.twhirl.org/2008/09/12/twhirl-preview-for-laconica-sites/ Since twhirl added support for identi.ca some time ago, we have seen growing demand to have generic support for any laconi.ca based microblogging site out there. Thanks to the Twitter-compatible API it provides, we are happy to announce a preview version for twhirl today that you can point to any laconi.ca installation. And we now also support Dustin Sallings IdentiSpy tracking service!

twhirl 0.8.4 adds identi.ca support http://blog.twhirl.org/2008/07/21/twhirl-084-adds-identica-support/ http://blog.twhirl.org/2008/07/21/twhirl-084-adds-identica-support/#comments Mon, 21 Jul 2008 22:03:31 +0000 mak http://blog.twhirl.org/2008/07/21/twhirl-084-adds-identica-support/ There has been a lot of change in the microblogging world lately, with quite a few new services showing up. One of those that gained a lot of attention is identi.ca, created by Evan Prodromou from Montreal. Although it lacks some of the core functionalities we are used to from other platforms, there’s something unique about it: it’s open in a lot of ways. We received quite a few requests to add support for identi.ca to twhirl, and since they released a twitter-compatible API just a few days ago, we gave it a try. It was surprisingly easy, and worked out of the box. Plus, we were able to use the XMPP support we originally added for twitter to get real-time updates of messages from your followings. And of course we will make it available for other services as well once they support it.

twhirl 0.8.3 - a maintenance release http://blog.twhirl.org/2008/07/03/twhirl-083-a-maintenance-release/ http://blog.twhirl.org/2008/07/03/twhirl-083-a-maintenance-release/#comments Thu, 03 Jul 2008 12:26:16 +0000 mak http://blog.twhirl.org/2008/07/03/twhirl-083-a-maintenance-release/ While twitter is still struggling to get their service fully up and keep it running, they introduced some new glitches over the past days that also affected twhirl. First, their call to retrieve a user’s current rate limit status was completely changed and made twhirl’s built-in auto throttle non-functional. Second, an issue when posting a status update also lead to problems in twhirl.

Those things kept us busy over the last days, and while we don’t have new features to release yet, we are doing a maintenance release today to get the auto throttle back working and also handle posting problems better should they happen again.

twhirl and the Twitter API rate limit http://blog.twhirl.org/2008/06/27/twhirl-and-the-twitter-api-rate-limit/ http://blog.twhirl.org/2008/06/27/twhirl-and-the-twitter-api-rate-limit/#comments Fri, 27 Jun 2008 12:00:59 +0000 mak http://blog.twhirl.org/2008/06/27/twhirl-and-the-twitter-api-rate-limit/ One of the new features twhirl added lately was auto-throttling its request usage to the Twitter API based on the current limit they enforce. This was possible by requesting the number in action from their API, so we could adapt twhirl’s request schedule to it. This worked great, and we have received far less reports of users having issues with exceeding the limit since then.

But unfortunately, Twitter decided to change the behaviour of the request now, so the algorithm implemented in twhirl does no longer work correctly. It will likely send less requests than it could.

We already launched a preview version some days ago, but now it becomes official: version 0.8 allows you to connect to your friendfeed account from the same application you use to read from and post to Twitter. The user interface has been cleaned up a little bit, and various bugs have been fixed.
