Dianara in Chakra, Mageia and Debian repositories!

August 18, 2013

Dianara is now available in Chakra, Mageia Cauldron (future Mageia 4), and Debian Sid repositories.

Thanks to all the packagers who made this possible!😉


Development of Dianara 1.0 continues. As of this moment, the development version already has some important advantages over v0.9, like the possibility to edit your posts,  better post layout with sizes more appropriate to the contents, and auto-linking when pasting a link in a post or comment.



Dianara pump.io client v0.9 is out!!

Hello there! About a month after 0.8 was released, Dianara 0.9 is out!

This time I made a screenshot with more conventional colors ;)

As you can see, there’s now a Symbols sub-menu, with a few semi-standard symbols that might be useful to have.

The image upload feature finally supports adding a Title and Description:

Posting Star Trek images…

And it will remember the folder you used in your previous upload during the current session, so you don’t have to navigate to the same folder over and over again when posting several images.

The tray icon will show you how many unread messages you have.

2 new messages! These are system-type notifications under KDE Plasma, by the way

The catch is that after each timeline reload, previously unread messages are marked as read, but you know… next version!


Current status

Main changes since v0.8:

  • Image uploads with title and description.
  • Comment liking and unliking.
  • Ability to delete your own comments.
  • Contacts exporting.
  • New posts are marked as unread until clicked or timeline is updated again, and the unread messages count is shown in tray icon.
  • Publisher or commenter are not cleared or hidden until posting is confirmed, so you don’t lose your post in case of network/server error. Some information about posting state is shown.
  • Added a “Symbols” submenu under the “Formatting” menu in the composer.
  • Lowered QJSON requirement to 0.7.x, which means users of Debian Wheezy, Trisquel 6 and other distributions which still have QJSON 0.7.x can build Dianara now.
  • Lots of other minor fixes and improvements.

Dianara 0.9 is available in English, Catalan and Spanish languages. A Polish translation is in the works.

Translators would be welcome to translate it to more languages😉

Get it

There are Dianara packages for openSUSE available. You can also find it in Archlinux’s AUR and Chakra’s CCR.

There is a Gentoo ebuild, and a Debian package currently waiting in Debian’s FTPmaster NEW queue.

You can get the code from Qt-apps.org: http://qt-apps.org/content/show.php/Dianara?content=148103.

Check the INSTALL file for details on how to build it.

Feedback is appreciated!

Debian and openSUSE packages!

August 3, 2013

Hello there!

Dianara 0.9 will be released soon, but in the meantime, David Lara made some Dianara packages for openSUSE. You can find them here: http://software.opensuse.org/download.html?project=home%3Advlara&package=dianara

On a related note, thanks to Mònica Ramírez, Dianara is now in Debian’s NEW queue, and hopefully will be available in Sid repositories soon😉

A huge “thanks” goes to both of them, and to any other packagers out there that I might not be aware of😉
