For the adventurous among you, we’ve decided to release beta 1 of PostXING available for download at ProjectDistributor!

There are a few known issues, but as far as I know there aren’t any showstopper bugs. I’ve been running the development build for quite some time now, and for PostXING v1.1 users, I think this release is a big step up in terms of usability. Since the only working provider at this time is the MetaBlogProvider, the functionality remains basically the same, i.e. you can manage a MetaWeblog enabled weblog using PostXING from your desktop.

If you find any issues, bugs, or you just think something could be done better, head on over to the Gemini issue tracker. To add an issue, click the All Issues link and then Create Issue at the top of the page. If you don’t want to get that involved, you can always use the contact form over at to at least get your issue addressed…or you could just let it ride and hope I run into it myself :)

If you’re feeling really adventurous and want to hack on PostXING, you can do so by using TortoiseSVN and pointing to All main development is done on the trunk by version. If you don’t like how something works, send me a diff. I think I’ve been pretty receptive to criticism and feature requests (even tho we can’t put them all in at once), so the very least that will happen is that you will be able to use a program that you feel works better. Thanks, and enjoy!
