0.7.9 released

Today's release paves way for sync support. It can already be enabled but it doesn't work yet properly. There are also some UI improvements such as displaying number of unread messages in thread subject. I've been actually using Siilihai for reading the forums and it works pretty well.

Siilihai 0.7.5 released

This version has some bugs found in previous version. It's available at deb package repository.

I have been fighting with Maemo's autobuilder and unfortunately i haven't been able to upload the reader successfully. It seems that new packages have about one day delay before they are really added to the repo, so updating Siilihai takes up to 2 days (library + reader). If i and users get too annoyed because of this i'll create a own package repository for Maemo also.

If you want to test the Maemo version, let me know and i'll upload the debs somewhere.

Siilihai 0.7 released for beta testing!

It's out. Get it from and please report any issues. It still beta, so you are meant to find some problems. Currently i've only released x86 32-bit debs, as that is the only environment i have installed. 64-bit ones will be available later.

Also Maemo 5 version for Nokia N900 will be available soon (tm).

Almost there

The client has most features i want now included. I'm currently testing, testing, testing and fixing bugs. I want it to be (almost) perfect before launching beta.

I haven' t had too much time to develop anywhere with Internet connection which makes testing with real forums difficult.

Parser Maker seems to work pretty well and makes adding new parsers easy. I'm proud of the color coding.

Screenshot & moving to beta soon

Here's the first public screenshot of the Siilihai client. It's now in "usable" state. A lot of features are still missing and others do not work as they should.
The current client supports basic reading of forum messages. No authentication, replying, posting or parser editor yet. Message display works pretty well if the parser outputs good html.

If you are a developer, you can checkout libsiilihai and siilihai-client from github. For others, i'll build installable packages soon. Windows & Mac developers wanted to get builds for those platforms.

I'm on IRC #siilihai on both IRCnet and freenode. Join the channel if you are interested in testing.
