Introducing Lumberjack, a desktop client for Google Blogger

Earlier this year, I mentioned that I was working on a desktop application, a client for Google Blogger, written in Java with the Swing GUI toolkit.

I recently found some time to work on the enhancements that I said I wanted to do during my last update, and I'm ready to release the application to the world. Get a ready-to-run file at the Lumberjack download page. Just download the JAR file, save it, and run it; it will work as long as you have a Java runtime installed. If you're running Windows, Mac OS X, or Linux, you probably do.

If you have trouble logging in, you may have to solve a Google CAPTCHA first. You should only have to do it once.

If you're a developer, you'll find the source code at the Lumberjack GitHub repository. Simply run ant to build the application. (Yes, I put a lot of effort into getting this one-step build working.)

Patches, questions, and suggestions are most welcome. Just leave a comment on this post.
