In May 2013, Dianara went through a big redesign to adapt it to the pump.io network.
As of version 1.1, you can authorize the program to access your data, browse your timelines, post text with some formatting (to Public, Followers, person lists and specific people), upload pictures, interact with the posts (like, comment, share, edit and delete) and the comments (like and delete), edit your profile, change your avatar, watch the minor activity feed (meanwhile), open posts from there, manage your contact list, including ‘person lists’, and follow new people.
So, in short, it works for daily usage, depending on your needs. At least, it works for my daily usage
Check the Dianara category on this blog for more up to date information.
There is also some basic configuration, a tray icon, and FreeDesktop.org notifications.

On the technical side, it is, as usual with my projects, based on Qt, and as aditional dependencies, QJSON and QOAuth. Check the INSTALL file carefully for details. See also the BUGS and TODO files for a list of known issues and missing features.
If you’re interested in translating Dianara into your language, let me know. It mainly involves using Qt Linguist, and it’s quite simple.
Since July 2013, Dianara can be used as a client for identi.ca, which is now part of the global pump network.
Dianara started out as a Diaspora client, hence the name.
