Contrib update for early September (updated)

Tags: 

So after several months' of work last week I finally got new releases out for the Twitter module. And then this morning released more updates because a few bugs had snook their way in. Sorry about that. I do hope the new versions will keep people content for a while - if you, your client or your employer's site(s) use the module, please consider giving some back (on company/client time!) through helping with the issue queue as there are still a good many feature requests and patches that need some TLC.

Last week also saw a security release for Fieldable Panels Panes. With that out the door the next step for that module is to work through the issue queue and work on plans for the next release.

However, before that happens I do really need to get back to the Panelizer module that has definitely languished from my absence of the past several months. This module is very important to me and I'm ready to fix all the things and get a stable release out. Oh, and to write more tests. A lot more tests. Because tests are the one thing that help avoid the regressions that keep coming up.

PS, I'll be at NERDSummit next Saturday, September 12th, giving a talk on why open source is not just free software - I hope to see you there.

Oh... I almost forgot. This weekend I'll be getting the D8 port of Metatag onto d.o and plotting out my hopes and dreams to take it to v1.0 and beyond - we'll see how that goes.

Twitterrific v4.5.1 is upside-down! [updated]

Tags: 

I just updated my all-time favorite Twitter client Twitterrific to the latest release on the App store, lo and behold all of the text is inverted. I really hope this can be fixed easily and they didn't punk everyone who's still using the desktop (OSX) client.

Update: I got a response from The Iconfactory, who make Twitterrific, they said that this is caused by a bug in 10.7 that was fixed in 10.9 - they'd updated the program in v4.5.1 to work with 10.9 but that meant that it then didn't work correctly with 10.7. So the solution is: don't update to Twitterrific v4.5.1 if you haven't upgraded to 10.9 yet.

Harry Dresden & co are all on Twitter

I'm a huge fan of the Dresden Files novel series by Jim Butcher.

One thing I wasn't expecting to discover was that a huge number of the characters from the books have their own Twitter accounts:

I don't know who put this together, but this is serious cool :-)

I'll update the list as I find more.
