I just want to give a heads up to all who downloaded Identica-mode 1.3 that some bug fixes were done yesterday very quickly and the oficial stable release is 1.3.1 as of now. The main issue was a bug displaying all messages highlighted as replies when the timeline was in ‘oldest first’ preference mode. Also there were some other minor fixes.
After the buggy 1.2.1 release and a long bug fixing development time, the new Identica-mode 1.3 is released. Lately I’ve been relying more on releasing through package.el and the MELPA repository whenever I push changes to the main branch on the Git repository. But then I received some emails requesting for an official stable release for package maintainers and for people who don’t feel comfortable using development releases.
### What changed
Among many of the changes and bug fixes, here are the most relevant:
– Fix eLisp functions incompatibilities between some builds of Emacs 23.1 and later versions (a big bug in 1.2.1 release) – Auto-detect from server instance the character limit – Added favorite icon on format line to identify favorite messages – Format line can now display user profile URLs using “%U” token – Added reply to all feature, by pressing ‘A’ on a message will reply to sender and all mentioned usernames – Fixed ur1.ca URL shortening bug returning the DTD instead of the real link – Added highlighting of replies without username mention (the new reply format on Status.net 1.x) – Conversations (context) can now be retrieved by pressing C-c C-c on any message. – Remote user timeline retrieval with C-c C-o – On identica-friends list, pressing ENTER in a group or user makes Identica to load its timeline. – Deletes HTTP retrieved temporary buffers to avoid high memory usage over time – Optimized fontification code that renders the timeline in the buffer – Many fixes and optimizations
