This is an important update because it marks the completion of OAUTH calls on the dedicated PostyBirb authentication server. This only applies to DeviantArt, Twitter, and Tumblr. You will need to re-authenticate once re-installing/updating to 0.9.1. This is due to a security flaw found and brought to my attention where my API keys had gotten leaked because I was being stupid. This should hopefully no longer be the case.
It would be best if you went into your allowed applications for Tumblr and Twitter and revoke application access to the old APIs.
Other important things in this patch: Completely reworked how posting works. Feel free to give feedback since I was trying to tackle a lot of complaints and suggestions I have been getting over time and I plan to work more on it into the future.
Your template will also be cleared in an effort to try and fix an issue where templates were getting corrupted when overwritten. I was never able to reproduce the issue, so hopefully this addresses the problems.
E621 will no longer be getting adverts for PostyBirb (unless the user manually puts it there, but you shouldn't since they don't want to see them).
I will soon update the github public repo with the code of 0.9.1.
Moved download page to GitHub. Auto updater is now supported for Windows and Linux.
I am sure protection systems like Norton, Avast, etc. will now complain now that PostyBirb is now distributed in a real format per operating system. This is I think due to me not code signing (which is because that costs money)
Twitter service was remade so hopefully it should break less *fingers crossed*
The rework is finally in a place that I feel is release worthy. There are a whole bunch of changes, and a lot of them are in the change log section of the app itself so check it out. It might feel a bit different for a bit, but please take it for a spin.
If you hit problems I have left the old versions up for download.
I finally got around to making a discord server for the application.
Feel free to drop by.
https://discord.gg/jK5JQJF This server will be used to discuss PostyBirb and PostyBirb related things. Please use the channels accordingly. They are pretty straight forward, so please use your brain. If you are being a general nuisance I will issue you a warning. Afterwards you will be eligible for a permanent ban.
Hello everyone! Sorry for the lack of any real updates lately I don't quite have the time I used to have when I was initially developing PostyBirb. However do not think that I have not been doing anything on it.
In the background I have been working on a complete rewrite of the app so that (hopefully) it will flow better and be a little easier to use as well as be easier for me to add new features into the future (Going to take a crack at allowing scheduled posting).
My hope is that I will have the new prototype out early or mid December.
However, on that note I just found out that Twitter has a new character limit. I was unaware since I never use twitter. I will be updating the app to support it soon™.
