One year passed after latest stable release. But long time with so many changes and features for our Micro-Blogging client.
However this is not the officially stable 1.0 release, But it’s quit stable and usable now! And because of changes at twitter and Identica land, We highly recommend packing and using this version instead of 0.6.6. (One of the big changes in Twitter is Migrating authentication to OAuth method)
First I have to thank 2 groups of people who helped me on this release:
1. People who asked for new features they want, and contributed money to have them sooner.
2. People who helped me by fixing bugs and implementing their ideas in code.
So, Here we go: Choqok 1.0 Beta2 (0.9.85) codenamed “Reloaded” is ready to use and distribute 🙂
New features on this release:
Changes instead of previous version [1.0Beta1] :
New plugin system to make support for more image/file hosting services easier. (Uploader plugin system) :
ur.ly (A free [Apache 2.0 licensed] URL shorting service) (By Scott Banwart)
u.nu (By Timothy Redaelli)
urls.io (By Boris Tsirkin)
goo.gl (By Andrey Esin)
3.ly (By Andrey Esin)
And, Of course! there are too many features and changes since version 0.6.6 🙂
You can download the source code from here, and follow the build/install construction (in README file) to build and install Choqok.
Or, You can wait for distribution packagers to package it for you.
Important note for Twitter users:
Twitter guys announced that they will shutdown the basic authentication from 16 to 30 Aug, at a process of decreasing rate limit. So you have to migrate and use the new Choqok until then! Older ones won’t work with Twitter after 30 Aug.
