BloGTK, pywebkit, and WSIWYG: Crash Fixed?
Development on BloGTK 2.1 has been at a virtual standstill for a while, partially because I’ve been short on time and partially because there’s been a nasty segfault bug that kept cropping up whenever I tried to get the prototype WSIWYG editing system to work.
Now, lo and behold, it looks like that bug is no longer present, at least as of the latest version of Karmic. I’m performing more tests to confirm that the bug has been wiped out, but it looks like the crashes with the WSIWYG system aren’t happening any more.
If the segfault bug is gone, that will mean less time trying to trace that annoying crash and more time working on the next iteration of BloGTK.
With luck, BloGTK 2.1 will have WSIWYG editing; support for image uploads to your blogging system, Flickr, or Picasa; and some under the hood fixes as well.
Thanks to everyone who has submitted bug reports lately — I always appreciate the feedback.
