Ambientweet Release Notes
Ambientweet is a minimalist twitter client, and it is intended to just be left running in the background,
as a way of watching your twitter stream pass by.
Ambientweet shows just one tweet at a time. This is a deliberate design decision, which allows for a minimal user interface.
This, in turn, means that the text can be bigger and there's no need for extraneous clutter like toolbars or
buttons whilst you watch the twitter world go by.
You can use Ambientweet to post, reply and re-tweet, so it's perfectly adequate for adding to your stream and responding to what you read.
What it doesn't include is lots of complicated functionality for viewing profiles,
following people, managing lists and accounts, and so on.
The Twitter website is great at that stuff, so why try to replicate it?
full description of Ambientweet.
Fixed out of range error that was causing a stall.
Reduced the frequency of refreshes, to avoid running over the Twitter call limit.
Post windows now use the same style as the main tweet window.
The length of posts is now calculated intelligently to account for link shortening. So if you paste in a long link, it won't use up all of your character count, as the link will be shortened in the actual post.
Auto-completion list for @users in post window now includes all users that the app has encountered.
Now correctly restores cached tweets and users when loading.
Added subtle gradient to window backgrounds.
Fixed beta Sparkle feed URL (the app was looking at the non-beta feed instead).
Updated the manual with screenshots of new posting UI.
Fixed window resizing.
Improved sorting, refreshing with new items.
Changed user guide code to be sandbox-friendly (copies guide into the Caches folder and opens it from there).
Fixed some caching issues.
